Good job or bad job... I've been looking for a new job now ever since my current one reneged on their earlier offer of extending my contract and taking me on as a permanent employee once I've worked her for a year. (Read: They said 'we'll hire you after a year'; now say 'What? we never said that. You so crazy.) Needless to say, I had a phone interview and have a job waiting for me (after I discuss it a bit more with my wife and we actually go to the place this weekend). For a third party take on the job, I decide to turn here. Go fig. Pros: Gets us into a nice community, away from Toronto - both of us always wanted to do this. Pay is fairly low (still in poverty level) - but I can get a raise after 3 mos and benefits (80%) after the same period. Rent is dirt cheap, houses and land cheap too. The editor (it's a reporter job) is super nice - so much so, it's freakin' me out. She's offering 5 days in a hotel until we find a place to live - shouldn't be hard. Cons: It's a northern community (northern Manitoba) - it'll be cold. It's a small city 13k (but we've been in smaller < 2k) Money will be tight for a while until either the wife finds a job or I find a second one. The work is a little more hectic than the last job - 3 stories per issue, 3 issues a week. No requirements for photos though... I won't be able to post as much in the OTF (horrors!) My main concern is how nice the editor is being about this. Is this a sign that she is desperate and is just putting on her good hat until I get there, then slaps on her ***** helmet?
