    If this is how they begin their relationship with you, and as we all know, we always put our best face forward, I wonder how they will treat you in a year.

    After much negotiation I am going to start on the 15th with training as we first agreed. The nights for many moons, LOL, was tossed out.

    so you will not be required to work their night shift position, well thank goodness. just watch out for other ways they may take advantage of you. it's good to work hard and show initiative in a management position and to have some leeway, but what they were asking you was just not right.

    you go chica!

    Tooooooooooo many red flags about this position, Renerian.
    Would have stoped talking to them weeks ago.

    Do you have 24hr accountability or it that the Directrors job. Know of several persons who left this type of postion as were expected to fill in holes on schedule. Sounds like this is what they will do to you after you get there...

    Karen I informed them fully that I would not take the position if I had to work the floor all the time. I do not mind helping at all or covering for breaks but in reality I know I cannot work all shifts every day and so on and so on. I did tell them their 6 months of nights was out of the question and not why I was hired and they did agree that would not occur. I was very honest and said if that did happen I would immediatley put in my notice as the position would not be what I was told. They agreed. So I am hoping they stay true to their work. I know it would be hard to help the workers, develop a relationship with the docs if I am on nights.

    Thanks for your concern Karen. I always listen to what you have to say and I hope the picture we agreed on is correct.

    Renerian,

    You sound comfortable in your decision after your re-negotiation. I am pleased that youhave come to an agreement, as I know that you want this job. I will offer no further negative comments, but only support if you need it. It's time to get excited and enthused about your new job so that you can motivate your team. I'm assuming that you convinced upper administration about the problems inherent in placing you in a night staff position by highlighting what good you can do by fulfilling the position as it is intended....a leader, manager, motivator......and possessing the energy to perform this job!

    My hat's off to you!
