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.
