    Need a second opinion on something.

    Went to a job interview yesterday. Felt like it went well. Ended with the interviewer asking how soon I could start ("immediately"), then saying they'd call me later once they'd worked out when to hold the new hire orientation. Nothing was signed, but impression I got was that I'd all but been hired.

    Didn't hear anything yesterday, haven't heard anything so far today. It's currently a little before 3 o'clock.

    I should call them and touch base, yeah? I didn't just get quietly dropped from consideration?

    (Minor complication: I can't recall the name of the guy who interviewed me)

    It's important to have a job that makes a difference, boys. That's why I manually masturbate caged animals for artificial insemination.

    Definitely. But a note on that complaint: rather than a laundry list of problems with him, limit it to your single best point - telling you he would fire you for referring people to their union rep. Because that is open and shut.
    So yeah, he asked me for a post meeting like thursday, saying he just came out of hard breakup (hum hum after 4 day), but whatever, really sorry he had to vent on me. Told him I deposit a ticket at the Union, because I was tired of being treated like the shitbag like he treats me. Automatically went back to aggro mode:"You do know you'll be in the shit for it" I was so tempted to answer back something like "Yop but I'm bringing you down with me", but I knew everything I said could be held back, so I just played it smooth.

    And yeah basically the mail I sent the Union guy was asking, "he told me I could get consequence for being a negative person to his new project and trying to rally our guys(the team I'm part of) behing you(the union). Have you heard any consequence I could get?". Also we had a few meeting with our rep and in most case it was me coordonating them... so I'm pretty sure he just had a guess I was the one and try to nail me before it got out of hand....

    Our Union rep was off this week, so I get news this week.

    PS I'm working in a 20k+ compagny that has a BIG UNION which is really strong (in most case, the unions(cause we have 5...) are stronger than the leadership of the compagny), so yeah knowing how to talk the union lingo is new to me, but I think I'll manage.

    So I got a support engineer position open in my support team. Central London, up to 40k, run the support team here and manage some of the SaaS stuff we do too (if you can heh). Has a 24/7 phone that comes with it, it's a support gig but not one where you just follow some checklist. Deffo want people who can solve problems through investigation and such (it's a mix between product and sysadmin issues that need debugging). PM me if anyone's interested, relocations are technically not out of scope but you better be damn good for us to fork out for that.

    If you only want to pay rent and eat, sure, maybe. It's completely shit otherwise. At 1200£ for a bed in a cupboard, accommodations are shit too. Now factor in commuting and the general cost of living in the City and it's a deal that's very much at the limit.
