I Got My Job Back!

    I was laid off in Feburary from my Office Administrator position at a sheet metal distributor company due only to the failing economy and the extreme drop in price of steel.

    Today, my boss called and confirmed that not only do I get to start back on Monday full-time, but that I will not have to go through the 90 day period all over again for benefits, my medical will start again on July 1st and any previous sick and vacation I had previously accrued will become current.

    I am really excited. My job is awesome and I really missed it. I work with the best people. I can't wait to get back!!

      Thanks smile

      Exactly what I was thinking. I've know a lot of people who lost jobs, got hours cut, or took pay cuts not because they deserved it but because employers couldn't afford them. I hope more jobs get to go back to normal. smile

    What great news.  You must be so relieved.  Maybe it represents part of the trend towards things getting better.  Anyway, glad you got such great news before the weekend.  Go celebrate!
