Boredom

Yup, I'm posting out of boredom.  I don't think I ever mentioned it but I'm now signed up officially with a temp agency called AppleOne.  They're a temp agency with a very good reputation and they're known for not calling back everyone who tries to sign up.  Somewhat picky I guess, which is good for me because I got called back in September and I'm one of their employees.  My account manager is a very kind girl named Jen and she found me this really good assignment with a local major corporation, Broadcom. 

They make semi-conductors.

While I only know in laymen terms what a semi-conductor does, I DO know that I am in love with this company.  Professional people, calm atmosphere... an HR department!!  I most definitely highly value HR departments after that last debacle someone calls a job...

I have come to the realization that as much as I enjoy the intimacy and personal interest in small businesses, I am most definitely a corporate girl.  I like the anonymity, the knowledge that the business isn't going to just up and fail, knowing that policies won't change frivolously from one day to the next, that the boss can't directly scare off the customers while asking me why I'm not running through the parking lot to get them back to give us twenty dollars after they just ranted to me about how they will never come back again because of how they were just treated by that man....

Did I mention I enjoy having an HR department?

It's a really good assignment, with very good pay.  I'm currently waiting for some upward movement to get underway there because the word around the soda fridge (Free drinks for employees! That includes temps!) is that there will be a full-time reception position open soonish.

And according to Jen, it's very impressive that they keep asking for me to come back and cover shifts.  This makes me a happy Bon.

It's nice to feel appreciated, even if it's only temporary.
