I also figured I would need to get a background check again. Not. Fingerprinted? No way, Jose
My interview at the agency consisted of probing questions like :
- "What kind of things are you in to?
"What do you want to do?"
Though I must admit the agency hit the mark with this job. It's the sorta thing I am just clerically enabled enough to do.There is no massive data entry to do, just reviewing paperwork and some customer service over the phone.
I am in charge of a whole division which means that the entire division consists of just me. I am constantly told that no one can tell me what to do, and I shouldn't have to stuff envelopes.
Now why you would give a "Temp" an entire division which was then described to me as "high profile" is a matter only someone who has been a supervisor or an upper could answer.
Working for this agency has been quite a change for me. I am no longer scanned and run through a metal detector just to get in my office. On the other hand neither are the public.
Here is a quick rundown of my first day:
- 8 am to 930 introductions all around
- 930 to 1120 review articles on my job
12 30 to 3 pretending to work followed by:
6 hours of envelope stuffing the next day.
I finally feel like a temp. The universal job requirement for being a temporary worker is the ability to stuff envelopes. I can do this quite well. I witnessed faces of full of mock astonishment when they saw the piles of envelopes I had stuffed!!
