@OmSigDAVID,
Probably won't ask for a raise right away, but they did give me the keys to the place today.
I guess that means they want me to keep coming back.

@Joe Nation,
When I worked for Florsheim shoe company, I busted my behind and outperformed all previous field auditors, and and asked for a raise after 6 months on the job and got it. Got promoted to Audit Manager after 3.5 years.
Working hard and performance is the key to success.

@OmSigDAVID,
Probably in Yuan, but that currency might have more "power" in the world marketplace in the future as the Euro and US dollar falls in value.

@OmSigDAVID,
Yes, they are paying me in US dollars
(exchange rate today 1:6.36132 to the yuan).

And I'm learning more about CE ratings, precision balance tests and equivalencies between CFM and mm3/h than I ever thought possible.

@cicerone imposter,
You worked for Florsheim?

Those were my dad's favorite shoes. Every Christmas, his sister sent him a new pair of Florsheim shoes, even well after he had retired. When he died a few years ago, we found dozens of shoe boxes with Florsheim dress shoes in them that had never been worn. Those shoes rarely wear out.

@Butrflynet,
Yes, I worked for Florsheim Shoes, and all the shoes I bought (at cost) while working for them still looks new. To be fair, I rarely wear them now except for special occasions. Those were the "good old days," when our country produced high quality products.

Great news Joe, and with an opportunity to build something from scratch and shape its future. It sounds like a real challenge, but one with real opportunities for success. I wish you well.

@Joe Nation,
JoeN, laddie, I reread your Saturday post - such a good read. I'm very happy for you, not least re the good people to work with, and a fascinating job that seems right up your alley, but also the nearness of the Y.

No, but like everyone else in New York, I will probably pick up some little bits here and there.
