I have an endless supply of T8 bulbs, and if the manager is looking the other way, an endless supply of GE ballasts...as long as the fixture itself works, I'm good

still worth it to me, not to mention energy savings, to not have to mess with those damn bulbs. but i guess free bulbs changes things a little bit. I have been on an LED all the things kick though.. just put in all new outside lights and two new ceiling fans. next up is can lights.

Yeah, I have been on that too...if the manager is REALLY looking the other way...he's got a stash of LED T8 retrofit bulbs...I've been nice, and just taken from the stash of standard T8's that they don't use anymore (they went from 32 watters to 28 watters)

did you not want to work for new bank, or was it a bullshit offer so they could say they offered to keep x# of old staff.

I mean, if you buy the Menards fixture, you are basically getting a free ballast, with an entire fixture...the one's in the for sale section look like 4 bulb fixtures, that need to be hardwired...if they were 277V and only have ballasts for 277 volt, you are going to have to buy a ballast...you may need to even need to buy a ballast, if the one you get is shot...plus if it's a T12 ballast, you can't do anything but T12 bulbs in...personally, it's easier to just spend the $10-15 on a cheapo fixture from Home Depot or Menards

Same money to drive an additional 45 miles a day plus tolls... So a good size pay cut. And it includes time on 294 and 290 so lots of traffic.

I personally am not a fan of that.

Had a chat, negotiations have been opened... I should be receiving a new offer next week with at least 2 days working at a location closer to home or at home. I"m honestly hoping to see if I can get 3, but since no one else has that I probably won't get it.
