Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things Things I like about my new job


1. My new boss [waves at boss]. We've known each for a few years and I'm enjoying working for him.

2. My new colleagues - there are only eight of us in my immediate department!

3. My new environment - eight of us tucked away in a corner of the office :-)

4. I knew more than I thought I did!

5. After running the 3-man section single-handedly for three months, my boss is happy for me to help pick up the wayside jobs using my skills.

6. My boss is a bloke. No offence to the women out there, but in my 20yrs only two women bosses have ever been any good.

7. It's nice and central - ie near the shop! :-)

8. Because I am now in a much more central part of a 7,000 person site, I am making contact with old friends I haven't spoken to in years.

9. My boss tells me to go home at 3.30 [big grin]

10. I don't, of course.......

11. I can use my experience and it is welcomed.

12. I have already put some new processes in place.

13. I think I'm gonna like it there :-)

I've had male and female bosses and I find the female ones are far more approachable. Depends on the environment I suppose :)

Here's my TT:
