I recently finished school and knew that once that was done, I'd be looking for a new job. I worked for my family before and it was a really good run. I enjoyed it and it was perfect for the time I was there (9 1/2 years).
Everything ended up working out perfect. I interviewed at a couple of places, but they just didn't feel quite right. I went in on December 2 to this company and got offered the job on the spot. I started on December 4!
It was kind of funny...the first thing the president of the company said to me was, "First of all, do you get offended easily?" Hmmm....do you know me? I said, "Um, ususally I'm the one doing the offending..." I knew at that point that it was probably the job for me! The rest of the interview went pretty well, so it was good news when he said, "Can you start today?"
I am now the HR/Payroll Manager at an HVAC company. The job is right up my alley. I think the hardest part is to get used to having to be at the office all day! Not that I wasn't at my old job, but I had a little more freedom! Anyway, I love the job and I love learning things about a business that is sooo different than the one I came from.
