I have a new job!
It’s definitely not what I thought I would be doing at the age of 60½ but it meets my needs, pays very well, is fun, allows me to drive a lot (which allows me to find new and exciting things of which to take pictures), and allows me to listen to my vast music collection during the times that I work.
The company is a startup subcontractor to Amazon Prime Now, itself a startup here in San Diego.
I have had a 2-hour training session, a 4-hour training session, and a 7-hour training session. Today, I start full-time with four more 7-hour training sessions before Amazon Prime Now launches in San Diego on November 18.
Because I’m a subcontractor to the subcontractor, I can work as much as I want, any day I want, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and midnight.
The holiday season will affect my pay so to start I’ll probably be working 12 hour days, five days a week, and take advantage of the higher rate of pay for the holiday season.
Jim and I are a one-car family, so I will have to schedule my work around taking him to his job Sunday through Thursday at 1:15 and picking him up at 10:30. By the end of the year because of the holiday pay, we just might be a two-car family.
