Nepotism is working for me.  :cool:




Actually it's totally the opposite. I'm held to a higher standard and get yelled at worse becasue the boss is my brother. Yes I do get away with things that I would normally not get away with, like telling the bosses to fuck off on a weekly basis. They also know even with all my bitching and moaning I take care of the company because it's family. It's a balance. Another company we are involved with did the checks to family that have never seen the inside of the shop thing. That doesn't happen in my family, we're German and that shit doesn't fly. You must work in order to get paid.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

Of course it's working for you, you're nepotising. :laugh: I wouldn't bitch if I were in your shoes either, then again I'm not, so nepotism blows.

I need to find someone to nepotise off - damn deadbeat or dead relatives are useless.

This place has family working here, but they all actually work.

What a coincidence... my place has family working here too, but they DO NOT work. It's like a Gub job without all the vacation days. You just CANNOT get shafted here. It takes an act of God and a big bribe.

Got an offer today.  :cool:

Basically the same money I'm making now (I'm salary, this works out to like $0.93/hr less but there's overtime so it wouldn't take much to match it), same insurance but much cheaper (nearly half what I was paying before I decided I couldn't afford it), better schedule as far as commute, longer commute (15 minutes longer, 10 miles farther) but easier on the car due to it being mostly tollway/highway. I got ~5mpg better on the ride there and back than I usually do and shifted 1/10th as much probably.

Got some thinking to do.

Congrats!


Thanks for the congrats everyone. It's a done deal now. Current job wants me for an extra week beyond the 2 I gave notice for, I'm still debating this but inclined to say no.

Way to go! As for staying the extra week, are they willing to maybe pay you a bonus to do so? That might make it worthwhile to consider. Remember - you don't want to burn any bridges!

Gonna play that one by ear, my gut tells me they won't be giving me anything beyond what is legally required, if I'm lucky.

As far as burning bridges, I've done my best to avoid that, even gave them right of first refusal to give me a position in the printing part of the business, they declined. But everything at this point is ok, my manager just came by to tell me good luck and that I suck for leaving because he will have a hard time finding a replacement that will have what I have to offer.

Ok, well then, day 3 of the new job and nobody's screamed in my face, threatened to kill me, called me fat, or set fire to the place. So far, so good. Wow, they're organized too - seriously invested in computing power and technology.

No blood sausage to be found in prepress so far, it's me, the senior mac jockey who is the team lead, and a guy that does mostly design, but seems to manage to prep files just fine, and I think he can even use Preps if needed. Over us is the systems manager, who is damn good at all things prepress and of service bureau lineage.

Wait, that must make ME the blood sausage... HEY! damnit. :death: How did this happen to me?

Busier than shit too, I see job security as long as I don't screw up too much. Definitely no time to be hanging out posting on various unnamed forums for now. I can barely glance at my email on my phone.

No, no unnamed ones...just this one.   :cheesy:

Sounds like you might be pretty happy there, mate.     :cool:   Nice to hear some good news on the job-jump front.

That doesn't happen in my family, we're German and that shit doesn't fly. You must work in order to get paid.


After 25 years, now I get it. Same applies here. Married into Polish/Jewish family. Why weren't you around earlier to explain that, Farabomb. I'd have been less bewildered all these years.   :laugh:

Oh, in case there's any misunderstanding...Farabomb and I are the guys who get to stay back and finish stuff. No questions asked.
