Blessed Samhain and Happy Halloween, y'all!

You know that old chestnut about how it's easier to find a job when you have a job?  Turns out to be true, at least in this case.

I can white knuckle it in Hamburger Hell for a couple more weeks...BECAUSE I START THE STARBUCKS GIG AT UNC HOSPITAL ON NOVEMBER 19!!!!!!

Full time, benefits, 401(k), PTO, sick leave, tuition reimbursement (and that's even if I just see something that looks cool at UNC that I want to take just 'cuz.  Which I think would make me a student, and eligible for all the student discounts that entails), and shift differential after 3pm, which means an additional 10% hourly.  The whole state job meets corporate gig shebang.

And since i'll be working 2:30 to 10pm, y'all do the math....;)

I will be making more per hour than I EVER have...and more than Kent is currently.  *cue evil laugh*  Not that it makes a difference, really, because everything goes into the kitty...but we are *very* competitive.

I am so excited!  Back to the barista mines!

Oh, very cool! I don't know what 401k means (and I'm pretty sure that's not your annual salary or I'm coming over AT ONCE) but the whole gig sounds cool. Esp. the tuition thing and that you can study anything you like as an add-on benefit for just working at Starbucks. How cool is that?

Congrats on the new job! Sounds like it has lots of awesome perks. I'm happy for you! And tuition reimbursement for any class(es) you want is really, really cool...it seems like most jobs that offer tuition reimbursement only do so if the courses are somehow related to their line of business. So it's super cool that they'll reimburse you for any class you want to take!

Great news!! So will you actually be working for Starbucks or the university? I wondered how that works when they are inside another business or institution.
