First paycheck from the new job!

June 11th, 2016 at 10:46 pm

I posted this to the forum also but since I've shared more about the new job here, I figured I should mention it.

My first check was direct deposited Thursday night but I just realized it about an hour ago. I got paid for my 8 hours of orientation and the two 4-hour shifts I've worked so far, so 16 hours total.

They neglected to pay me for the 14 hours of computer training I did. I was kind of expecting that to happen and I really should have reminded the practice manager about that in advance. I just emailed her so I assume they'll add it to my next check in 2 weeks.

So now the new job is really official!

I'm sure you're wondering what the plan is for the additional income. Right now, my plan is to pay off DW's van. We owe about $1,700. This check was for just under $1,400 so that covers most of it and I'll pay the rest from the next check. That will drop our monthly expenses by $400, which is ironically convenient because our expenses are going up by about $450. Our auto insurance went up when DD got her car a few weeks ago. Our health insurance is going up. And a recurring medical bill is going up. Oh well. Easy come, easy go.
