Well I got a job !!! This is truly the funniest story ever .The end
of Sept of 2004 I had spent 8 1/2 years at a really great
company. These people were like my second family and I was really good
at what I did there. Times got tough for the company with the economy
and raises and bonuses were cut. So I started looking. Then was
approached be a recruiter for a job at Pepsi Corp. Well Pepsi, what
could be better than that. So I gave my notice and decided to take a
couple of days off in between. Then came a call telling me I'm not
going to be starting there and they placed me somewhere else. Never did
get an explanation as to why ( I hate recruiters now) So I took the job
at the tire company with the co-worker from hell all the while still
looking for another job. Last week I see an ad posted again for Pepsi.
I applied and interviewed. Yesterday they made the offer. Passed the
credit and reference check, now just have to pass the drug screen,
which is no problem.
So the past year has been a strange experience and not quite sure what this lesson was supposed to teach me.
