And I LOVED THEM! I still have a lot to learn, but I DID learn that I had a good basic grasp of things, I am a pit-bull, I ADORE the quiet time from 2am to 4:30 am.
LOVE LOVE LOVE. I am going to work tonight from 5 to 10 and I have, for the first time, very little anxiety about it. I have a book I might read too! YAY!
I’m doing my first midnight shift solo tonight…no one there to help me if I have questions.
Oh well, has to happend sometime.
I’ll be ok. I picked up another midnight shift in November that has a $50 bonus on it. I’ll be doing midnights about 4x a month. hope it goes ok.
I’m determined to like this job – even though I’m dreading it right now.
I worked solo last night at my new job and I’m pretty sure I made more mistakes than I can fathom. I felt like I was doing “OK” and people were saying that I was doing good, but as I walked to work today, I started wondering if I actually paged the correct doctors at the correct times via the correct means. THere’s a chance I might’ve botche up about 4 or 5 different pages. Oh well, I’m learning and tonight I have a different batch of questions and things to watch for. It was busy as CRAP last night. I was hoping for slow like it was before!
Still, I see that some shifts have $50 bonuses if you work them. Sweet!
I got hired as an Answering Service Rep for a local Hospital. I go in tonight for training. I’m hoping this will be a good fit for me. The pay won’t be as good as the Casino, and the job may be a little too much the same as my day job here at the research center, but I’m hoping the hours are do-able (not EVERY weekend)and it certainly is convenient. I will probably get free parking which I can utilize at BOTH jobs and will be safer for me. Lately, people have been robbed at gun-point right outside my building and I work in a high-traffic area, so it’s a little creepy to just walk the 8 blocks to and from work. I’m careful, but, well, that won’t save me in every instance I guess.
I quit the casino and it was REALLY TOUGH! The managers were SO nice to me but the kitchen sucked SO HARD!
I feel like a new woman! I don’t have a second job yet, but that’s ok. I’ll get one!
I just interviewed for another desk job here at BJC. I am dreading going into the casino. I did, however, make $1000 this month (extra) and I put it into the bank. Not BAD!
It’s gonna be a tough job..not volume-wise, but because the food is iffy, the wait staff is moronic and the kitchen “chefs” are assholes. great.
So, next week I might make $200.
Endoctrination was a TOTAL BITCH! ack!
I go for training tomorrow. NOT to work in the cafe, but to learn about the “casino culture” ...YUK. What a load of shit.
Still, I train for 5 days before I get set loose on teh floor. That’s ok I guess. I like lots of training. My first real shifts are next week. Friday night, Saturday double, Sunday breakfast. WOW! That’s gonna kill me, BUT, it should probably bring in $300 I’m thinking.
I wrote a budget and …it’s BRILLIANT how much money I will be able to save. I should be able to pay off my house in 12 years if I play my cards right and don’t give up!
I got hired by River City Casino NOT as a bar porter, but as a WAITRESS! While I am not excited to be waitressing OR working all weekend, I AM excited about the money AND the opportunity to brush up on my waitressing/bartending skills. If I don’t like it there, I’ll get a job by mom and dad’s, maybe at tuscan grill or “the hideaway” or something.
It’s easier to get a job waitressing/bartending (especially as an older gal) when you already HAVE one of those jobs.
