I know you wanna know.....

so before you ask, I'm gonna tell you.....The new job is GREAT!

You may have read an earlier post about my interviews with United Airlines.  I shared my excitement about finally finding a job and all the excitement of just getting through the interview process.

Well, this Monday was my first day at United Airlines, located in the John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, California.  I was and still am excited.  The people are great, helpful and so welcoming I almost feel like a celebrity.  Okay, well, maybe not a celebrity but I do feel special.

So my first day I was told I'd be going over to LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) for training.  My husband finally back from Cost Rica is dropping me off so that I don't have to deal with parking and the employee shuttle which at LAX takes about 45 minutes from parking lot to office.  Yes, believe it.  That's not including the drive time.....not for me!  The shuttle from the employee parking lot at John Wayne Airport, better known as SNA, is about 7 minutes; a huge difference.

Anyway  besides the fact that I'm overwhelmed after my first week, I still think I'm gonna love it there.  Unless they're all exceptional actors they're a great group of people which means, of course, that I'll fit right in.  I'm kidding, I'm kidding (unless you care to argue the point).

All benefits kick in day one.  Can you believe that?  So many companies these days aren't even providing benefits anymore and I'm getting them day one.  Wow!  I'm ecstatic about that, I promise you.

I won't go into everything I'm doing but I will tell you that I'll be working in the office doing a lot of the accounting functions.  To go further would mean I'd have to write a book and I'm saving that for my new laptop.

I just wanted to share with you all just how happy I am with the new job and say that it's about time I found something worth my time. 

Yep!  That's me.
