A Work Update for DH's Job and Prospects

June 21st, 2016 at 11:05 pm

DH went down for an interview with the job placement company this morning and it seems like it went really well. I hope he gets to work through them because they offer incredible benefits. It has a 401K that matches up to 4% (we have no matching at all with current job). It has medical insurance that is $25 a week per family, not per individual, and a $1000 deductible, again per family, not per individual. And honestly if it was per individual, it'd still be better than anything I've seen in decades.

It looks promising and they are sending his resume to a few places that are seeking his skill set. I really hope that the one next county over will work out, even if they aren't hiring until sometime in July. There's another one that will be hiring in September that sounds good, too, and a couple other places as well.

We still don't know anything about company 2, either, who is taking over the contract at the end of this month from DH's company 1. It is sounding like DH will have a job through August with company 1 at least if he doesn't find a better one sooner. If he can stay steadily employed until getting hired elsewhere that would be so good, especially if that elsewhere is the job in the next county over.

I am afraid to be hopeful. My attitude is kind of "Don't show me pretty things I can't have," right now, but I am trying to remain positive. Because those pretty things (the insurance, the 401K) are things I really, really, really do want to have. Not to mention feeling like the future is secure again.

Continued prayers, good vibes, and crossed fingers would be appreciated.

    OMG, fingers crossed!

  6. SecretarySaving Says:

    Have you thought about entering the workforce to help out in the meantime?

    This sounds good! It doesn't hurt to be hopeful! I was just thinking that in my years here, I have seen so many stories of families worried sick about job losses or imminent job losses, and they always seem to come out just fine (though going through a lot of stress -- I don't discount that at all!) Good luck!

    SS--I am disabled. There are very few jobs I could do without the type of painkillers that would make me unable to then be coherent enough to perform a job. Plus, I run the farm, which does bring in a small income now.

    I sure hope it works out. One would hope that sharing the benefits like insurance and 401K means they want him to work for them.

    Wishing you the best!

  11. LuckyRobin Says:

    Rob--Yes, they want him to work for them, but since they are the placement company, not the job itself, it doesn't mean too much if they can't place him. But they really want to because they like his prospects a lot.
