That's right! It's THIS bitch right here!
Seems that the hospital thinks it'll be cheaper to pay another company to dispatch rather than paying me to work 80 hours a week. Heh. Well, ok. In the long run, they're going to be saving money. I think it's the first of October when they would have had to have had a CAD system and all sorts of other fancy shit in place in order to compliant with county protocols and that would have been a shit ton of money. So they will actually be saving money there.
Am I pissed? Not so much now as I was last Monday when I was told. I worked up in Sagnasty to make sure the other company knew how to do my job (they have a full dispatch center, but all the crap we knew about transporting for the hospital, they didn't. It's actually quite a bit different than how they handle the hospital transports up there.) and it actually wasn't all that bad. Not what I was expecting at all. Depending on what I'm able to negotiate, I may actually wind up working there. o_O
So, right now I'm just kinda sitting back. I signed all my paperwork today, so I am now officially unemployed. I'm not liking that I'm not sure how I'll be getting money, but right now, I'm not all that concerned. I mean, I did get a severance package (which came with a confidentiality agreement, so don't ask) and I'll be ok for a bit. I kinda want to just take the summer off and hang out with the boy. I'd totally do just that if I wasn't afraid that I wouldn't be able to find a job when I was done bumming around and sponging off the government. Mmm... Unemployment benefits. Well, that and the whole needing medical insurance thing. Heh. I've got prospects, though, so that's encouraging. Oakland County is hiring and I'm gonna throw my name in the hat for Genesee and Flint fire. And, not to sound all full of myself or anything, I'm pretty sure I can go to any private company that needs a dispatcher and have a job. After all, it's not that often that someone who's already AEMD certified walks in looking for work.
Tomorrow I talk to the other company and see what they can offer. I have quite a few other phone calls to make as well. It'll all work itself out. Hell, I'll probably wind up some place better, where I'm not pissed off just thinking about having to walk in the door.
