I started a new job just two weeks ago. I am at US Bank in downtown Minneapolis as a software tester. My boss is the best and our team is terrific. It's fun being downtown. The office area is very nice and I stay busy all day in my new little cube. I was contracting before and this was an opportunity for a full time salaried position with benefits including paid vacation.
I am taking the bus everyday and it's a great way to avoid driving in traffic and gives me time to do lots of reading. I have already read three new books in the last two weeks.
Bill also works downtown and has been taking the bus for quite some time. He leaves at 6 am to catch the 6:18 bus, gets dropped off right in front of the US Bank Plaza building and works in a building one Skyway away. He starts work at 7:30 am and is done at 4 pm. I decided to take the same bus so we have been riding down and back every day together. Luckily my team is very flexible on the time that I work. We leave very so in the morning but at least we are back home by 5 pm.
They have posted a sign in our office 'No photos allowed on US Bank property' so I can't show the office or my co-workers but I will post the outside area and events from time to time.
