A job!

So, I have a second shift data entry job starting either this Thursday or next Tuesday.

40 hours a week, 9 bucks an hour.Schneider Logistics. First shift will be 5-1:30 AM for training, after which I'll be working 4-12:30 shifts. This is the same job that luxtiger got, so hopefully she and I will be able to car pool and all that. We drove by it a couple nights ago when I took my driving trip in the middle of the night. It's about a 20-30 minute drive out to a warehouse in the middle of nowhere.

My 10key scores were about 8700, which is more than the 8500 neccesary for the job. Not nearly as good as the scores I got on the web/java applet, where my scores were:

Ten Key typing Score
Keystrokes   KPH*    WPM*  Words  Errors   Seconds   Date 
1071         12852   24    122    4        300       19 May 2003 10:51:10

Normal Typing Score
Keystrokes   KPH*    WPM*  Words  Errors   Seconds   Date 
1279         25722   63    190    7        179       19 May 2003 10:07:59

But it was good enough! I've got the little piece of paper with instructions on how to get there and all. And roy did some quick math based on my numbers, and he got this:

<roy> news, 40*9*6
<News> roy: 2160
<roy> news, 2160*.23
<News> roy: 496.8
<roy> news, 2160 - 496.8
<News> roy: 1663.2

So, I should be making $1663.20, after taxes, after my first six weeks of work. It might be able to extend longer than that, depending on how things go. So, hopefully I can do that.

Later today, I"ll go over to Geneva and ask if they need some help from 9-3 or anything like that. It'd probably kill me to work two jobs, but the money would be a good thing, and if they need the help, I'd do it. They were really flexible with my time last year, so hopefully I can convince them that they want me to help them again ;)

Still, even if that doesn't work out, this job will give me more money than I made all last summer. So, that's definitely a good thing ;) That combined with the job I'll have during the year will help me feel a lot better about not being troublesome for my parents with money.

Hopefully erin and I will be hanging out tonight for coffee, especially since our schedules are completely oppisite, so we won't get much time to hang out except for weekends this summer. Bah. Working a regular-hours job is going to be so different. I'm used to retail where I got like every 3rd day off, and never the weekends...

Ah well. I'm glad I've got what I've got, and am really hoping it all works out.

Oh, and pie_is_goodSarah: I'm getting a season pass now. So count me in on that family pack thing, if you haven't gotten them yet.

This friday, I should be going to Megan (Sarah's cousin)'s graduation. She got tickets for me and all, and the Remedy Staffing people said it shouldn't be an issue - even if I get trained this thursday (which is about 50/50 at this point) I won't start work until monday, so it should all be good.

Yay for a job!
