It's been a while since I've put down a journal, and things have happened on the job front. First of all, not long ago, I had another temp assignment doing security at Moscone Center. This was for the RSA cybersecurity conference. I had done last year's RSA, but just two days. This time, I had done six. I was working the swing shift, from 3 to 8 PM. Some nights, I was on equipment watch. Other nights, I stood by escalators checking badges and wristbands. Nothing exciting, but it was all right.
And more recently, I was put to work as a desk clerk at an apartment building for seniors called Mission Creek. It started last Monday, when I got a call about the assignment, which would be that day and Tuesday until 11 PM. But I got it in the afternoon, just as I had finished a dental appointment! So I just rushed down, and it wasn't that close by! Anyway, the job was to sign in visitors and check their IDs. I was also responsible for locking up some rooms and such. Plus some visitors would need overnight passes. That involved filling out a form and copying their ID. Again, not exciting, but I didn't mind too much.
On Tuesday morning, I got an E-mail from my recruiter saying that night's shift was cancelled. I wasn't too upset. However, that afternoon, my agency called me, saying the shift was back on. So I hustled down to work again!
Thursday morning, I got called to go in again, just for a few hours at midday. The staff of the building had a lunchtime meeting, so they needed someone to cover the front desk. So I agreed to go in. The lady who was their regular morning desk clerk, had asked for me. She told me she liked the way I worked! And she said if I was interested, I could talk to my agency about becoming a regular on-call desk clerk. If I got an offer for that, I'd prefer morning shifts. The day shifts see more action, of course.
Then yesterday, I was called in the morning by the agency again. Mission Creek needed someone to fill in for the morning desk clerk. So I agreed, and hustled on down. A bit more of the same. I'm happy to have the work, but I'd rather not have to be called for it the morning of. It's better to know in advance, so I can plan accordingly!
