Job Hunting

The job hunt has ended for Jeff!

He will start working for the Church next month.

The insurance is good,

The pension plan is good,

The wage is good,

But maybe they should rethink their lack of bonuses and stock options.

Instead of  bonuses and stock options they could something along the lines of:

  • 9% tithing
  • 1/2 hour shorter Sunday meetings
  • 2% increase in blessings
  • 1 month free pass on visiting teaching and home teaching
  • Free subscription to the Friend, New Era and Ensign
  • $1000 clothing allowance as we buy new shirts, ties and slacks for work
While they consider these options, I'll be considering how to handle having Jeff up in Salt Lake all day and not at my immediate beck and call.

(Don't kid yourself, I'm VERY grateful for Jeff to have a great job opportunity like this. We are already getting that 2% blessing increase!)

Wendy, I could not be happier to hear this news!!! It sounds almost perfect, except of course for those few items you have pointed out....Now that would be PERFECT :)

HAHAHA! Steve works for the church and I agree with some of those perks. I don't know why we even have to pay tithing, they should just take it directly out of his check! jk
The company stability is pretty great too! I don't see them going under anytime soon!
Congrats on the new job! What area does he work in?
