Probation Over

Today is the first day that I am officially off probation at work.

It's been weird being on probation for the last year. Every other place I've ever worked had a probationary period ranging from two weeks to ninety days. But, on the upside, it would essentially take an act of God to fire me now. Either that, or me acting in flagrant violation of city policy.

Of course, the likelihood of me doing that is slim to nil.

Ok, I'll bite - what do you mean by probation at work? Are you new, were in trouble, did pa BillG ground you?

Inquiring minds, with not enough to do, are wondering.

No, it's an initial employment probation period. A one-year standard probationary period is standard at most cities in Northern Utah for all new employees.

I started at Layton City on October 1, 2003, and this last week was the final week of my probation.
