Talked to my dad last night. I decided to stay with OTS, so today we talked about pay and what he wants from me. As for pay I told him how much I made when I was at Ingram, and said a certain amount will net me more than enough to live and be comfortable, so he offers another 50 cents/hour over that. I said yes! and it was so.
So then he puts me back on the insurance, and I have 90 days to make it to lead tech status.
I don’t think I’m going to have any problems in the slightest getting there. I know the job and I’ve done it for two years. My biggest concern is customer interaction. I’m not quite as quick witted as a few of my fellow techs to make those ‘ice breaker’ jokes to keep the atmosphere light. But in spite of that, if I go to a job from day one and keep ahead of the game I should be able to keep my head above water in getting things completed the way the customer wants them done.
