Do you now how cool the company I work for is? Let me tell you how cool it is.
Yesterday, my boss poked his head into my office and said, “The shoe truck is here.”
I blinked at him. “The shoe truck?”
“Yeah. Every year, because we require people in the warehouse to wear safety shoes and you’ll need them from time to time, we have a shoe truck come around. Up to a certain dollar amount the company covers and anything over that is your personal cost. So go pick out some safety shoes.”
So, I got to go into a truck and pick out some very nifty Sketcher safety shoes with a steel toe and everything. I’ll get to have them shipped to me here because he didn’t have my size out on the truck. And then I’ll have them for when I have to work in the warehouse to assist with things like inventory or when our warehouse guy’s out sick and my boss needs help to get stuff shipped out.
That’s how cool the company I work for is. And next year, I’ll probably (maybe, but not necessarily) get to pick out another pair.
How awesome’s that?
I hope the people working here know how terrific those little perks are. I really hope so. I certainly do.
Oh, and I found out I get discounts on rental cars for personal use too. See what I mean? Awesome.
I love this company. I’ve worked for three big companies in my career — Firestone (corporate, not retail), Sony and now this one. And of them all — of them ALL — this is far and away the best one. Great salary, great boss, my own office, great perks and discounts on stuff from my cell phone bill to new car prices…even a free hat and toys for the kids the other day.
Awesomeness. Unless and until I win the lottery, I’m not leaving this without being dragged out kicking, screaming, crying and begging.
