After 14 Years...

... an AA degree in Elementary Education and Motherhood, I find myself in a CEVA warehouse as a shipping clerk for 5 days a week plus occasional OT for a few hours and on the weekends.

Do I like it? Yes. I love the challenge of learning something new and being able to keep up with the rigor of the job after only 9 days.

How's the environment? Full of vulgarity coming from nice people. The drama is awful, but I keep to myself and am polite and try to be as efficient as I can be so that I don't have to answer to anyone, especially not my boss. During break times, we're all equal so I try to tune out the vulgarity and offer prayers in the bathroom. LOL

How's the pay? I don't know. I was offered a fair hourly rate, but I haven't received a penny of it yet. I've been there 2+ weeks and we get paid weekly by the Temp Agency who hired me, but their PAY CARD system is not working for me, so I'll have to make sure they do DIRECT DEPOSIT. The downside, it can take weeks, the upside, I'll see my money when it's all setup. Until then, I need payroll to cut me a check. The waiting game can be summed up into one word: aggravating!

These blogging moments are gonna few and far in between, but hopefully, not too much... 'Til next time!

Keep singing good songs to tune out the vulgarity.

How exciting! Congrats on the new job! That must be so different for you, but maybe after awhile they will realize the vulgarity is not so cool after all. Praying for you in the meantime.
