I found my weekend job working with people with developmental disabilities on craigslist.
Early last week just browsing through the jobs (not looking for anything else, but looking out of habit I guess) and I saw where my company is still hiring for a particular shift. I noticed in the posting that they were giving a sign on bonus. During training I vaguely remembered someone saying something about one, but I thought it was just for full time staff.
Being the curious being I am, I called my manager and asked if the sign on bonus applied to me as well. I wasn't really looking forward to it cuz I only work 8 hours a weekend. (4 Sat, 4 Sun) She wasn't sure and told me she'd get back with me once she got an answer.
Fast forward to yesterday. I had miscalculated something in my checkbook, a check I wrote still hadn't cleared, thus left me hoping and praying that I did not get hit with an overdraft fee. I nervously checked my account this morning and the check I was worried about didn't clear last night YAY! I got everything back on track, balanced, covered. *whew*
Flash forward to about 30 minutes ago. I get a call on my cell from the supervisor of the weekend gig asking me about my thoughts on somethings. After the brief chat she says, "oh yeah, *insert managers name* wanted me to tell you your sign on check is here and ready to be picked up"
*me, like a dummy* "What?" It took a second to connect the dots. "OH! Wow, umm okay!"
Here I was waiting to hear if I got one, assuming I didn't because of my limited hours and these folks done cut the check! YAY! It's not a whole bunch of money, but it's a great addition to have!
Pooka's last day of school is today and we are going to MD this weekend so she can start her summer with grandma/daddy. I guess I can take a lil bit of the sign on money and do something fun! I wonder what she will choose to do.....
