Banker NO MORE!

Hi all! At some point I'll probably give a full update as to where I've been, but right now, just wanted to say that today is my last full day as a banker! I start my new job on Monday with a software company that makes software for banks. Tired of making less than $40K as an account manager, and then working extended hours, plus a whole slew of other stuff.

Today's going to be mostly surfing probably, so I thought I'd check in. Anything you ever wanted to know about banking, but were afraid to ask? :D

I'll start with the first answer--no, we don't have a giant vault out back full of money, and no, we don't get to swim in it like Scrooge McDuck on lunch hour!

:shrug: Well geez, what's the point in being a banker if you can't go to a big vault out back full of money and swim in it like Scrooge McDuck?

Schwinn, I wish you the best and much success with your new job.:D

Congrats in getting out of the banking business. They have huge profits, do they not share them with the staff :eek:.

(Kinda thought I'd spend my day on here catching up, but our systems suck, and I couldn't get on the net most of the day!)

Sure, they share thier profit...kind of the way Grace shares her Smarties with Maddy ("What? I gave her one...") Until you're a manager, the salary levels are usually $15-25k less than what most people think.

I never was able to ride here. Shirt and tie+heat+sweaty man=:yuck:. The new job is about 40 mins by car, and doesn't require a shirt and tie, so I'm seriously considering taking the road bike to work a day or two.

The family is good. Grace starts school next year (still SOO not ready for that...me, I mean. She's more than ready), and Maddy's huge. Talking, walking, and wrapping Daddy around her finger. Mrs. Schwinn has said part of her would like a third, but worries for me if it's another girl. ("You'd be soo screwed!")

I bet you are very ready for this. I know that you are so tired of the whole bank thing.

I hope that this new job is much better.

But...but...but...but....SCHWINN! Couldn't you figure out a way to keep some of all that buy-out money? Didn't they share any with you??? Nutin?

So, then, screw them! Congrats on a better job and uniform!

Good luck with your new job Schwinn!

I love my new job with Whole Foods Market. The only thing is that my daily commute goes from 30+kms to about 12+kms.:D So I feel your pain buddy. I am seriously considering going for a long ride before work. There is a shower for employees at the new store I am starting at.

RIDE ON!
