I have an interview tomorrow

Click here to enlarge

Some of you already know that my current boss is an asshole and we had it out a few weeks ago, for the last time. It was ugly. He said some things that he can never take back or make up for so I'm leaving. I've been actively looking for 2 weeks. I received two calls Friday afternoon and I have an interview tomorrow at 2:30. I'm nervous!

Click here to enlarge I think it went well. I have plenty of experience. The only problem I can see would be salary. I make a decent salary right now but have no benefits.. no vaca, sickpay, ins, etc. This new place starts much lower (but said I wouldn't start at the bottom because of my experience) but they have full benefits. She said something about second a second interview with the dept head who returns from vacation this week. So maybe next week?

I hope it works out. I'm really excited.

Oooh and just before I left work today (I took the afternoon off) my boss got into with me, AGAIN. The man is bitter and an ass and I really need to get out of there.

Don't you love pricky men. I hope that you get the job so you can get away from all the bitterness. Would the full benefits make up for the pay decrease?

I don't know. I'm googling. Click here to enlarge I'm trying to find if there is a benefits calculator that will weigh salary with benefits to salary without. I wonder if there is such a thing?

I haven't heard of anything like that. Maybe a financial company might have something like that but I'm not for sure. Click here to enlarge

I know that we have some contracted drivers and their contracts allow them to take our company benefits or to get an extra $4/hr. These are USPS contracts and they determine the rates, so I'm not sure how in line they are with the private sector.

Glad the interview went well, I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

I don't know if there's a calculator, but our company prints up a statement of benefits each year, and it includes a figure of how much our benefits cost the company. I believe it says that the value of all of my benefits are $15,000 annually, and here is what that includes:
401K
Pension plan
Oxford Freedom Plan, $300 deductible, $600 family
Full Dental Coverage, $50 deductible, preventive maintenance 100% covered
Short term disability with full salary continuance for up to 6 months
Long-term disability with 60% of salary continuance
$60,000 life insurance, $180,000 supplemental life insurance (I pay some towards the supplemental life)
4 weeks' vacation, 2 personal/1 floating day, 5 sick days
Medical and Dependent Care Reimbursement Program
Parking Reimbursement Plan
$100 Transit Check Plan

The medical and dental alone costs nearly $700 a month.

The last three items probably do not cost much, just costs to administer them.

Hope that helps in determining how much your benefits will be worth.
