Finally! After a year of searching, I finally have a job again.
Last year in July, WisPACT had no further work for me in terms of scanning, renaming, and sorting their client files into their database. The work was of no trouble to me at all; just simply sit around and let the work come to me. However, the job turned out to be too for me. It was expected to be done in two to three years, but I got the project done in over one year. There was no additional work for me of that type, so I had to leave.
So I scourged around, seeing what jobs were available. I wanted something of the “cashier” position, just for some customer service. Sadly, I have no such experience, and I wasn’t sure of any other positions that would suit me best. I applied to Woodman’s as a cashier at first, then I tried again as a bagger. The latter job was the job I got, but it will suit me fine once I get used to it.
It was a lot tougher than I had originally anticipated; sorting the groceries, and making sure that they do not become damaged, all at breakneck pace had caught me quite off guard—including a strained back. However, the pay rate for the weekend to fit into the college schedule should be worth the while. I hope that I get the hang of it eventually, maybe gain enough seniority to get a better position and hours too. But it will be a start for now.
