Temporary Position

Hi all, 
Just wanted to let you all know that I have accepted a temporary position as a supervisor for TeleTech to aid in the final transition to digital TV this month.  
I will be managing about 20 people and should be working some pretty crazy hours. 

The lady in HR who interviewed me felt I might be a good candidate for other permanent positions once they become available, so that was encouraging.  
I'm hoping that I'll find I actually like working at this company and that it's a "trial by fire" where I really shine and they want to keep me on.  

The pay is quite good for a temporary position, but the shifts will be from 6:30AM - 3:00 or from 3:30 to Midnight - and my schedule is really not set ever (I will work on weekends and I'm never certain of what days I have off).  I would be on call to change my plans at a moment's notice.  
I can do anything for a short amount of time, but I won't really be able to see much of Matt unless I get the morning shift.  We'll see.  

The schedule is really my only hesitancy.  Other than that, I'll be working again, learning some new skills and managing a good sized group of varying personalities.  Should be quite enlightening.

I'm so excited for your new position. Sounds great and being a supervisor is always a great way to get your foot in the door. I'm sure you'll do wonderful! When do you start?

Thanks Jewels,
I start on Sunday. Ugh. Not sure what time though. We're doing 2 days of training ahead of time, but I'm not sure if it'll be Sun / Mon or not.

I've been trying to get stuff done. Now it seems like all the time I had in the world is gone. Funny how when you have a lot of time you drag everything out inefficiently.

Have you posted anything new? I keep checking to see what brilliant things you / Garrison have to say. ; )
