Two more weeks....

Posted

Has 25 years experience.

two more weeks until my fiance and i move to nc. time is really going by fast now. i think i have the majority of my ducks in a row as far as everything needed from here to start down there. i got my offical offer letter from pcmh in the mail saturday. now it feels real, that i actually do have a job after looking for so long.

so very soon, i'll be a resident of nc. but i hate to hurt feelings though, this gal will always bleed ky blue :paw::D i just hope i can watch some of the football games on fsn south.

now, to find a hotel to stay in. we won't be able to look for a place to live until we get down there :sniff: so it will be me, my cat, my fiance, and his dog in a hotel room until we find a place to rent. though my fiance keeps out hope that we can still buy a place. i seriously doubt it though.

Welcome to NC! I'm a KY transplant also. I actually love it here. Shoot me a PM once you make the move. I might be able to give you some suggestions. Again, welcome!!!

Yep. We'll be living in the Greenville area once we find something, but at first we'll be staying in a hotel.

Good luck! Did Hearthside ever contact you back? We've sent off all of our money for deposits and stuff. Still sounds like you'll be in orientation with my husband June 1.

Here are some extended stay places:

All are very close to the hospital.

Hearthside never did call me back. Wainright replied to their emails very quickly LOL. I also found a few places in the rental guide I picked up while there for interviews. The sticking point with my soon to be husband is rents over $500. Regardless of what I'm making, he wants payments in a range he can afford to keep a roof over our heads and the power on if something happens to this job. Not a bad idea, just makes it harder to find something decent in a decent area. Plus, we want to actually look at something before plunking down a deposit and finding out it's actually a rat-trap.

One thing I find odd about PCMH is how they do paydays. The pay period ends on June 7th, so why do they wait until the 18th for payday...half way thru the next pay period? Weird, at least to me.

I'm scared, excited, paranoid all at the same time about starting this new adventure.

Yep! That's how my job does it too. The pay period ended today, and I'll get paid for the time I submitted today in two weeks.

I'm used to the pay period ending that Sunday and you having your check by that same Friday.

I'm not sure whether or not you're looking for an apartment but three really nice apartment complexes close to the PCMHl are Treybrooke Village, Waterford Place, and Hyde Park. But it's been about 4 years since I've been to Greenville so I'm sure a lot has changed. Anyway...Good luck!

Unless they've done some renovations within the past 4 years...Most of the Wainright properties are "rat-traps" or at least I think so.

Except for maybe Holly Glen

Just curious...what's the current starting pay for new nurses at PCMH?

I think starting pay is around $20/hr. But that may have changed. I have only been there a year but already my pay has gone up a couple of dollars.

I agree. I'm begging you to stay away from Wainright now! I'm sorry I ever mentioned them. They were good to me in college, but now- YUCK. We got keys to 5 places when we were looking. The lights weren't on in any, so we couldn't see a lot of the stuff. The second one had the carpet ripped up (just padding on floor) and smelled musty/moldy. The third made me gag, and it takes a LOT to make me gag. It hadn't been cleaned from the prior tenants, and they had some nasty pets. It reeked of urine, carpets were stained and getting moldy, carpet ripped in several areas (at the door where an animal had obviously been shut in a room and was scratching at the carpet near the door to try and dig out), walls stained. They could have cared less about it when we told them. I would NEVER show someplace that like to a potential tenant- you're going to run them off and make them tell everyone else about it (like I am now :) )

Holly Glen is nice (they're newer, plus close to the hospital), but I think they're expensive, and I don't know about pets.

Yount Mgt. is another good place that I rented through. I don't think they own as much as they used to, but they were great to me. I found mold in my air vents, and they came out to clean them. Once we figured out the problem was worse than expected, they put me up in a furnished apartment while they changed out my air system!

Which is why we are waiting until we actually get there to pick a place. I found a few in the rental guide I was given, but it's from Jan and things change rapidly. One place I was interested had pet friendly in the Jan ad, but now has gone to no pets. My soon to be hubby has hopes that once we actually get there we can find an actual house. I keep telling him it might be two years at minimum for us to get financing because of his lack of credit and my bad credit. He still thinks he can get financed on just his income No one wants to finance what he, by himself can afford even if nothing is wrong with the home.

Oh and right now....STRESS is my name. 4 days until my wedding and we still have things to get, mainly for the cook-out. I also just realized I don't have flowers, aren't I supposed to have flowers?

The good news is at least I now have my NC bank account open and ready to go. I can make hotel reservations now. Now we have to figure out how long we are going to stay in a hotel while searching for a place to live as I think I'll only be able to do things on weekends. With our luck offices close by 430 which is when most of the first week of orientation ends.
