Week 2 at the new job, and I'm already packing my things.
Apparently I'm coming at a fun time for the company. They are 'in between' buildings right now, like I was in between jobs. They have a brand new building being custom made for them, which will be ready in June. The problem is, in order to pay for the construction, they had to sell their old building to pay for the new.
Shooting yourself in the foot much, eh?
They sold the building late last year, and struck up a lease agreement with the new owners. "We can't move out yet, even though the building is yours." At the time, I guess the new owners were ok with it...
In January, they said "we are switching you to a month to month lease." The company gulped. A few days afterward, they said "ok, now we're switching things again. You need to be out in 30 days."
That 30 days ends this week.
The funnest part? I don't think we quite know where we are going yet... They have a few buildings picked out, but I don't think any lease paperwork was signed....
I don't remember "packing and heavy lifting" in my job description. Or organizing storage spaces. Trying to learn a new position, while packing away your training material, makes for a fun week.
Wish me luck!
