    I've worked as an unloader at UPS for about 7 months now. I've been interested in becoming a part-time supervisor for awhile, so I finally started the process, and I just found out last night I will start on Monday. I couldn't be in a better mood. I'll be making alot more money (GAS relief!!!!!!!) and doing alot less physical work. I'm going to be working under my old full-time supervisor. I also found out I'll be working smalls sort, and not load, which means I won't be in there every night until about 10:30-11:00. Words cannot express how happy I am. I get my first check on the 26th, and it'll be about 3 times my normal pay. Definetely pissing it off on that Ampeg 6x10.
     
  2. Congratulations! It's good to hear good news! And what can beat being able to pick up more gear??? Congrats, again.

    Thank you. It really lifts my spirits to think that I'm still 18 years old, and a freshman in college, and I'll be boss over people older than me, and have been there so much longer.

    Congratulations! I know that feeling! :)

    I have a promotion story as well.... I´ve been working at the IT department of the largest hospital in Iceland in End User support for nearly six years. I´ve been trying to get into the Tech department for two years now and two weeks ago I finally made it!

    I´m now doing fun stuff! Most of my duties now involve implementing new stuff, running our Cisco switches, routers, wireless access points, Microsoft servers, MS DNS etc. Excellent stuff!

    Congrats again! :)

    Congrats. My first employee review in this week, and I think I will be getting a raise out of it. I've been working some extra hours, you know, staying late to help close the store, arriving early to help open, that sort of thing, and my boss had been really appreciative about it.

    Maybe I can move over to automotive!! That would be friggin' sweet.

    Rock on
