New Job - Part II !!!

March 28th, 2013 at 11:21 pm

To address some of the comments/questions from the previous post, I figured starting a new one made sense.

I am still super excited about the job change! And the additional money, of course!

Creditcardfree - I see where you are going with the question. Although I know I will likely be asked to leave, the norm is that I am still paid the 2 weeks. I also do not know for sure that I will be asked to leave the day I give notice. To keep a good relationship, I do want to offer them the full 2 weeks notice.

Snafu - the benefits are as good as my current position. Distance is not an issue either as both are within 10 minutes driving distance of my home.

This new position will have a learning curve as any job in my industry, but I am looking foward to every challenge!

As for a holiday, I won't be giving notice until next Friday and I start the new position on April 22nd. I will just have almost 30 days between pay period. I may or may not get some vacation time based on whether they ask me to leave the day I give notice or not (I am hoping yes so that I can take some time, get the house in order, ect).

Patient Saver - no - I am not leaving any money. I have been planning this. I used my personal days already (3) and 2 sick days. Everything else will be paid out, so I used the non-payout options first for days off.

I won't have any flex spending to do as I used more than I contributed already. I will actually end up owing about $100 back to them. This was accounted for in my $900-1000 figure that I think I will get paid out at the end of my employment.

I also have insurance going through the end of April, so I am getting a normal dentists appt in. I also refilled all my maintenance meds so that I have plenty during the transition.

In preparation for the new position, I am currently jumping through the normal hoops. I am also planning on doing a little business clothes shopping as my current work wardrobe is uber-casual and I need to be more of a business casual. I DO plan on sticking to a budget though Smile

    Good to know you get paid for those two weeks, whether you work or not. In my experience you likely will not have to pay back the money you used in your Flex Spending beyond what you contributed. The company will write off the difference.
