Well, maybe a change will do me good.

So, for quite a while now, I've been watching the job-posts here at the hospital to see if there's a day-shift position I can apply for that won't knock my wages down too much. Well, yesterday I came across one: Unit Clerk for Telemetry. It's a pay grade up, so that's good. It's also from 6:30am to 3pm, so it would be "so long" to my differential, but I can cope with that. It's a wonky schedule, as well: Mon off, work Tues-Fri, weekend off, work Mon-Thurs, Fri off, work weekend, rinse, repeat. Also, it looks like I'd have to work most holidays. I haven't gotten any information as to when it would start, but I wouldn't expect before CONvergence. I'll drop off my transfer Request tomorrow afternoon. The process would include an interview and all that jazz.

I hope I can get this position. I love working at the hospital. The hours right now kind of suck, however. I never thought that working an evening shift could be so bad, but it is like I'm banished from having a social life except for the occasional weekend thing, and if I want to do something during the evening, I have to request time off. 3pm is early enough to still do things on the weekends I'd have to work as well.

I remember how easy it was to be relaxed, and to be myself, and not freeze up during the interviews when I applied at GEICO, and at the hospital for my current position. That was because I already had a job that met my needs moneywise, so if I didn't get it, it wasn't a horrible thing. Yay if I do; meh if I don't. This should be the same. I do hope, however that no one else with qualifications applies. >_>

Getting up that early will be a strange change if I get the job. Being a night owl who sometimes doesn't go to bed until after 6:30am, I'll probably have the equivalent of jet lag for a few days until I can convince myself that I am supposed to sleep when it's dark outside. Silly diurnalism.

Wish me luck.

Good luck, darling! I couldn't do a 6:30am shift, I know that. In fact, I bitched and moaned until I got my 9:30am schedule back because I love to stay up late, but more power to ya.

That schedule doesn't sound TOO bad. Except for the Holidays part. I worked third shift at a grocery store for a while, I know what you mean about social life suckage.

Good luck!
