I'm Going Back To Work
« on: June 30, 2010, 06:59:08 PM »
Last Friday afternoon, I got a phone call from my former employer while I was in the movie theater with the family (got some gift tickets). I called him back after the movie was over. One of the six employees he has left after laying off 3/4 of the office last year is going to be out for a long while for an emergency bypass surgery due to clogged arteries. I think he's only like 31 or 32 years old. Anyway, they needed me to finish up something that this employee wouldn't be able to since he is out for probably 9 weeks. So I got that done over the weekend for him and yesterday he asked me if I wanted to go back to work for him, full time. This would be the third time that I have worked for this company. I've worked for them for a total of 10 years .

I was somewhat surprised but kind of half expecting this to happen based on recent events and knowing that they have been getting busier, so I have a job again. I was expecting to be out of work for another year. I will be taking a pay cut compared to what I was making before, but so has everyone else I have been told. It's a lot more money than I have been making lately! I think my first day will be July 7th.

The last 16 months has been a real pain in the rear, but we have been able to pay off some debts in spite of me not having a job, and we actually got our home loan modified, so what looked at first like major disaster has turned out for our good. In fact, I would go so far as to say that some of this stuff has happened through divine intervention. Anyway, just thought I'd let some of you old timers here no the good news. [8D]

Nice going, Paul! That's gotta feel good. My wife and I have thankfully managed to dodge the layoff bullets that have been flying around for the last couple of years, but we can definitely confirm your comment about pay cuts. Here's hoping things look better for us all ahead.

Good to know, congratulations!
The pay cut is half understandable half ridiculous. Actually a raise should be the least they could do to win you back for a third round without leaving the impression of shortchanging you. It may be bold (and a little crazy these days) but you should probably demand a raise once they're really back on track. It just shouldn't be good practice to fire and re-hire so I hope this time they learn their lesson and will take better care of someone who obviously is a high quality and loyal employee.

Greetings...
Nef
