New Job- 2 Weeks in

So I started my new job. It is pretty fun, not at all easy. You have to use common sense, reasoning skills, intelligence, safety awareness and perform physical tasks (not limited to).. I am technically a sort of technician, and we are personally responsible for a particular product 75% of the globe has heard of by name, yet the Company is kind of low-key. I enjoy it, and I make sure to meet if not exceed my employers expectations. So far I seem to be living up to that. My employer grants generous benefit packages. I have almost everything you can think of. I understand their benefit package is equal to 30% my income, which is huge (no matter your annual bring-home)! They recognize their employees, and I plan to deliver for decades to come. I love this place and will do everything in my power to keep my position. My Supervisor made it clear that I have garnered the attention of "Top Key Players" in the Company, and continuance of my education has been brought up to me as well already. I'm game, sign me up! I couldn't be happier. This is the 1st time I've been hired on full time with benefits since my first real position as a Landscaper when I was 16-21. I was there for almost 5 years, then exactly a decade later this job found me. I've been in poverty for so long, yet on the cusp of benefits being unobtainable. Now I pay for my own unbeatable Private PPO Healthcare Plan, Dental, Vision, 401(k)/403(b), Long TD, Short TD Ins.Accidental Ins, Critical Illness Ins., legal Ins., tuition reimbursement, etc. When an employer has these as benefits, matches on your retirement, pays for 4/5ths of everything... you want to build a lasting bond with them. They care. These are the reasons to go with them. The fact that they'll also make you a retired millionaire while you still live comfortably on your wage and anything that could happen is covered... is just an added bonus.

Paul,

At a young age you have a lot of wisdom. The years go fast, and then you wake up at my age with nothing. Stick with this company, max out the 401K and you and your family will be secure. There are so many broken dreams of "having your own business" and the lack of benefits-you are so on the right track!
