YIPPEE! It hasn't been long, he has only been home since June 30th. I am so stinking happy! The company seems really good and he seems excited about the job. He is making what he was making before he got laid off. He had 4 interviews with them, 2 in person and 2 on the phone. It is 15 minutes from the house on a bad day. He will do road trips once or twice a week, the farthest one is 2 hours away. Once a quarter, he will have to travel in the northeast. We need to get used to him being out of the house again. We also need to decide about insurance, and all that good stuff.
He is the only one of all his unemployed friends who has a job. It pays to do something that not everyone does. He does environmental compliance and health and safety management. He has dealt with hazardous waste and some not so fun stuff, but this job doesn't really include that!
