Greetings!

A while back, I started a thread on outsourcing and I mentioned the fact that my current role is being made redundant. I sounded quite upset at the time, but things have changed dramatically since then!!

Over the last week I attended 3 job interviews and got offered all three jobs (I know I know... I got the midas touch at the mo ).. the choice was Oracle or SQL Server.... in the end I decided to accept the role of ETL Developer and the super bonus is ... I have been given the opportunity to develop on my data warehousing skills!! The job pays much better than my current role and apparently the annual bonus is 35% of the salary.. HAHA!!! wtf?! That's insane!!!!!!!


Anyway, in the interview they also mentioned that they will also be moving on to SQL Server 2005!! Yay!!! So I have plenty to learn and plenty to look forward to! I can't wait to start!!!!

So... for my enemies here, I got some bad news for you!!!! looks like I will be hanging around here for a while to come. Who knows, I might even have my own custom title one day (ooops did I mention custom titles?!!!

You need to get past it dude, you don't have any enemies here. Just some people that don't like it when you act like a child.

The enemies bit was a bit of sarcasm.... let's call them bandits , lol. No really... it was an innocent joke... I am a happy fella at the moment that's all.

The company is.. wait for this... a betting company. They have over 1200 retail betting shops here in the UK and so you can imagine the volume of data generated once all the bets are gathered at the end of the day. I will be working as an ETL developer, starting in 6 weeks.

The company seem very technologically focused and they have a "special" relationship with Micro Soft apparently.

Congratulations on your new job.

Steve, you might be right about the North, I applied to a similar company up here (didnt get a look in though ). The company is also based down south as well but the main operations/call centre etc is up here


Is it based in the North??

No, it's based in the south. Obviously it's a different betting company

No it's not. Keep guessing though... there aren't that many that have 1200 shops all over the UK.
