Opportunity knocked and I had to answer...

Well now where do I start... at the TOP...
I am now the Logistics Manager for Travers Aramark, out of Edmonton. We do the same thing as PTI.
I already knew the Senior managers there having worked for and with them over the years. This is a newly created position managing the warehouse, transportation fleet, purchasing and operations. If it sounds like a lot. It is! But I have a large staff to choreograph. I am sure there will be a lot of growing pains but it will keep me busy until the summer vacation...I did negotiate my time off for the trip east.
The Departure From PTI- Timing is everything, I figured I would give 2 weeks notice. When they found out I was going to work for the competition I was escorted out to the parking lot. Hey! What the heck, I told them I already smuggled out the cadbury secrets and if they wanted to pay me off...all the better.
And did it come with a raise? Tee Hee Hee.. enough said.

Congrats!! We will both be starting a new job together...well not 'together', but you know what I mean.

I am really glad you already worked your vacation time into the new position. I can't wait to see you guys this summer. If I hadn't needed my new job so badly, I would have setup the time off while I was in the interview. Have fun at the new job!

Joe, only you could walk across the street and get a raise! I hope this means you'll be home more, someone has to keep an eye on 'Berta, you know.

Can I be a MacAuley too???
You guys are going to have too much fun without me.

Oh well, I can't forget I have five days in the mountains (Jasper National Park) in June and two weeks in St. John's Nfld in Sept with Mom joining me for the second week. Also, Ontario probably in October for Adrienne's graduation.

Congrats Uncle Joe.
I received an offer for a new job as well. I'm nervous about giving my notice to Xerox, and after reading your post, i'm even more nervous. :)

Well, that's it, I want a new job. Oh wait, no one is going to pay me what I get paid right now to sit on my A** all day. I better rethink this.
Congrads to Big Bro. Nice deal, but that is what you're good at. Candice will be looking for a great PR job in about a year and and half. Keep that in mind.
