    As some of you may have read, my work place has been going through a re-structure for the last 6 months. I had my interview for a position in the re-structure on Thursday morning, which was okay. I was as nervous as hell, but I was in there for the allocated time and answered all the questions, so came away feeling okayish.

    Anyway, I was told Friday lunchtime that I have a position. It's still a Medical Typist (what I do now) and still at the same Grade (so no raise in pay) working the same hours, same department, but with a different Consultant and secretary. As you can imagine, the relief was pretty immense and I think it's now only properly sunk in. Feels like a bit of an anticlimax after the last few months! Anyway, I'm very grateful and now I know I can get back on with planning my life and having more fun than usual, without that hanging over me!:)

    Phew!!!

    Oh that's awaful. Poor thing! :( I understand the need for restructuring at times, but do they really need to be telling people they no longer have a job 7 weeks before Christmas! That's just my opinion!

    How are you going to be celebrating then hun? xx

    wow that must be a weight off your mind, I often think I'd like to change jobs so I could get out and meet people, but other times when I'm working in my 'jamas no make-up on hair hardly brushed I think working from isn't such a bad thing :)

    Well, the admin department have been going through this since May! So it's been a long crap 6 months, tbh. No time would have been good to tell us, and I must admit, I didn't expect it to happen before Christmas.

    I haven't really done anything to celebrate, maybe I should! Ha ha! My sister was told she had her job (we work at the same place, different departments) on Wednesday so whilst out Wednesday night, we had a double Vodka each!:)

    It certainly is WC (hhhmm, I now have visions that you are a loo!!;)) Felt really flat to start with, and wanted to cry. Must've been the shock of it all! What do you do?

    I'm glad the pressure's been taken off you. 6 months is a long time to be under that sort of threat. Our place was awful when we went through it and that was only two weeks and I was one of the lucky ones who knew her job wasn't under threat.

    Yes, I guess like all jobs it has its good and bad points

    Good
    No commute time/cost
    No special clothes/make-up
    At home if a delivery is expected
    Dont need a packed lunch
    Choose own hours as its 24hr

    Bad
    Sitting on my backside for 11hrs a day helped with the weight gain
    No social aspect to the job
    Only 1 break of 20 minutes in an 11 hr day

    Am confused - is your current consultant leaving? If not if you are doing the same job at the same pay and same hours why have they changed your consultant?:confused:

    Yes, he is. He's been made to retire, not that any of us want him to. So yes, I'm working for a different team. They've moved us all round cos we all do different hours, etc etc. I don't understand it all either, but I have a job, so I'm not gonna try to! Ha ha!

    Looks like the pros out-weight the cons though. 11 hour days though! :(
