The good news is: I got a job!
The bad news is: The pay is not great.
The good news is: It’s in Brooklyn!
The bad news is: It’s over an hour’s commute by bus, or via a very roundabout train ride.
The good news is: It’s in an industrial area, so lunch options nearby are way cheaper than they were in downtown Manhattan.
The bad news is: My shifts can be as short as 5 hours, so I will not always have a full lunch break. Also, I should not be spending money on eating out.
The good news is: I will likely be getting closer to full-time hours as the holiday season approaches.
The bad news is: They don’t offer overtime. Ever.
The good news is: Because I will be working at least one weekend day, I can register to sub and should be able to pick up some assignments fairly easily.
The bad news is: I am 46 years old and still working two jobs.
The good news is: It’s an awesome company, and I think it will be fun to work there
The bad news is: It’s only seasonal.
The good news is: I am awesome enough that they just might keep me on long-term.
The good/bad news is: I get a 40% discount.
All in all, I’ll take it! Still applying for other things, but at least I will be out of the house!
