My last day at the "temp to hire" job was yesterday. Everyone came by to shake my hand and wish me well - and express disbelief that I was being let go.
Sat around for 7 1/2 hours and actually had about half an hour of useful things to do.
It would have been more cost effective for the management to have given me a week's severance - I would have had a week of working hours to look for another job, and they wouldn't have had me sitting there for almost 40 hours surfing the Web...
I've got a couple resumes out and the temp agency says there might be a couple opportunities in Rockford for me. I also found one possibility in Janesville - less than ten miles away.
