Unfortunately I have one of those jobs where it takes a month for you to start getting paid (seriously wtf?), but I got my first check in the mail today!
Just in the nick of time too. My bank account is abysmally empty (i.e. why I’m spending the summer trapped on Long Island).
I’ve been slightly terrified that I wasn’t ever getting paid and that I spent the last 5 weeks working for free from some shadow company that sends me the stuff I need in the mail every week. I have literally never met a single human being I work for right now, though I’ve talked to a bunch of people on the phone. My specific job description also sounds sketchy as hell. But Bloomberg L.P. says that this is a real company with real stock, its Glassdoor page doesn’t look fake, and this check looks pretty real so …
