I haven’t said anything, because I didn’t want to jinx it, but I have been on assignment with a client (through Aquent) for a year now. Well, a few weeks ago, they hired me on full-time.
The exciting part is that they have kept my pay rate, which worried me, because I had assumed if any client ever hired me, that the rate would go down. But it didn’t.
I also get really nice benefits and 401K. So I am excited.
Downfall, we can’t listen to music anymore or use Internet on our puters. Bummer. It is kinda scary hearing some of the stories of people walking off the job or getting suspended without pay over what seems like really menial stuff. But we will see what happens.
