Job Update

So I got an offer last night!  They offered less than I was expecting, so I countered and I won't hear back from them until tomorrow.  I'm hoping they meet my counter and I can give notice here.  

So when you're done with Winged's vag, send some pixie dust my way.

Re: Job Update

  • Wahoo! And vibes.

    And which job is this? 

  • YAY!  and you're not a delicate flower like winger so I can forcibly throw my vibez in your direction.

  • Hooray! I hope they give you everything you asked for. You are worth it, dammit.
  • Well, since we have to be careful with the force of our Winged vibez, I have some extra to share.

    More money, more money, more money vibez.

  • It's for a ridiculously large company where I'd be dong benefits outsourcing.  The first 2 interviews for the job were for one department, and the third was for a completely different position.  When I asked the manager why I'm interviewing for a new position, she basically said that the hiring mangers got together and fought over me and she won.  That did wonders for my ego.  I'm also hoping that means they'll meet my counter offer.

    The other thing I like is that she flat out said that if I spend some time in the position and find I don't like it, they'll help me find something in house that I will like (which may or may not be just and empty promise) and that I have the option of working from home as much or as little as I'd like.

  • Congrats!  Was the offer far-off from your counter?  What if they meet you somewhere in the middle?  Would you accept anyway?

    Heard anything re: the other interviews yet?  Are you hoping more offers come in before you have to decide about this one?

    I have another offer pending that pays better, but I really don't want the job.  This place is my frontrunner.  If they're willing to come close to my asking price, I'd take it.  If they lowball me, I probably would have to walk.  Which stinks because I think I'd like it there.

    I am sorry, I cannot get past this. I am crying. crying. literal tears pouring down my face. I have no idea what the rest of this says. 

  • I'm not sending that jerk any of my vibezz, so you can have them all!  Wahoo on being inches away from leaving your current hell hole!

  • Awesome! I hope the accept or come close to your counter-offer. I'm sending my non-cervix vibes to you.
  • Umm, Groomz?  You probably shouldn't post that personal information on the internets.  Now people are going to stalk you at your new company and visit your website.

  • Congrats! Hopefully they pay your counter to make sure they don't lose out on you.
  • Dong vibes to you!

    My experience with ginormous corporations is that this does actually happen. I had four different jobs within my last company. Good luck groomz!
  • Now I have to concentrate to make sure I don't accidentally send you the vag vibes and Winged the dong vibes. That could be messy.

  • I'm legit weeping at "dong benefits". I'm 12.

     

    Yay! I hope your dong gets the cash money it deserves!

  • This post is all kinds of awesome.  I don't know you, I lurk.  But because you completed your dong benefits with a business card - and thus made my day whole....tons and tons of vibes, pixie dust, and whatever else you need are yours.

    It's nice that after one post I am able to find such a hottie for my better half.  But to truly appreciate this budding relationship, I need some details...
