Am I on a merry go round?

I’m feeling like I’m on a merry go round right now….my supervisor moves to a better job, a co-worker retires then another. Add in new regulations, conditions of participation and a new application for the main service set we certify and you get a feeling of going in circles waiting for the dust to settle. Out of 4 open positions so far at least 1 has been fully hired for and announced. I’m waiting, albeit a little impatiently for the next announcement but in the meantime being supportive to another co-worker who is looking to move into the 3rd open slot which would open up her job too. Egads!

I interviewed a week ago….still waiting to hear back dang it! I have to admit that my co-workers and boss are all acting a little funny ensuring I learn all the tid bits they think of but then again that could be because of the next impending retirement at the end of the month too. I’ve had added work and subtracted duties and procedures to write…. really not clerical level stuff and I’m really really happy about it honestly!

I just want the wait over! I want the sun to come out again. I do NOT want it to snow this weekend either! 😛 Most of all I want the transition of people done with so we can move on to more important things!

  1. Sue, I understand the feeling. I went through similar as I waited on offer and counteroffer from the job I have now. All I can recommend is that you tell yourself that the lesson in patience is valuable. That didn’t do much for me, but–well, hell, in any event, you’ll be better for the having waited.

  2. Heck I’ve been patient in just waiting a week before writing about it! It only took a week and a half tho for the other position announcement I’m most of the way there! Just the funny way people are acting like the rest of the team or at least the two who did the interviewing that I see on a daily basis are acting kinda funny and half heard comments like “I hope it works, it’s all up to Juneau now” kinda have my eyebrows raised and me feeling hopeful… then again I am not going to hold my breath at all!
    Yeah, impatient and hating long transitions that have been going on for 6 months now and still have at least 3 more months to go!! If everything shuffles like I think it will then we have several more spots to hire for and if I get the job then even my job has to be hired along with the non-perm that is a 95% chance of a thumbs up by July 1!
    Arrrrggghhhh everything hinges on the next 6 weeks! Yeah I’m restless and going batty… battier than usual and not even a drive helped tonight!
