    Re: Starting a new job soon!

    Starting to settle in at the new gig. So far, the major problem is lots of acronyms.
    This is the darkest timeline.

    This might be a great time to send out a company wide email with your list of acronyms and corporate lingo that bother you, and to be sure not to use around you or in any correspondence that includes you.

    Re: Starting a new job soon!

    Enjoying my new job 3 days in. In Norcross to do HR stuff and train.

    First day was just having a huge book of policies, procedures and workmanship standards thrown at me and absorbing it. Yesterday I shadowed a guy on a couple of service calls to fix a pair of RO systems. Actually did all the electrical on a two phase booster pump on the second one (one of the major points of emphasis the guy I'm replacing had was that the new guy not be a complete moron with electricity).

    Work is hard but extremely doable and often requires creativity to custom build flow paths and diagnose problems, so I'm really looking forward to that. The driving is something I'll have to get used to though.
    Just a barner.

    The DoD loves its acronyms. My favorites are the ones where every letter of the acronym is another acronym.

    Just an update for me. My interview went really well. Since we met for lunch they now want me to come by their office. We will talk salary and benefits then. They said they will need people middle of September. If all goes well I will leave my current for a new exciting job. I would be working on high rise hotels, fun stuff and no more government work especially schools.
