I had a sudden temp assignment come in this morning. I'd had a feeling the assignments would come more frequently. I remember the assignment I had way back in January of 2012. Before that, it had been years since my last assignment. My next assignment after that came in September, and I was working until November. After that, I had to wait until February for my next assignment. This told me that I'd be getting assignments more frequently.
Well, I'd been getting more frequent calls from one of my agencies, at the evry least. Last week on Tuesday, a recruiter called me to offer an assignment on April 21st. I thought it a bit odd that I'd be offered an assignment so far in the future. The next day, the recruiter called me again to offer me a three-day assignment in South San Francisco. I had to turn it down, as I couldn't easily access it by public transport. Then on Thursday, I had gone out, but the recruiter left a message on my answering machine to offer me an assignment in the city. As soon as I got the message at home, I called back, only to find that the position had been filled. (Apparently, this was the only guy at the agency who didn't have my cell phone number!)
Anyway, this morning, the agency called me to say there was an assignment in San Bruno. I was told the location was close to a BART station, so I accepted. I rushed to get ready, then I headed down. I was told the business's address, but not directions on how to get there. If I'd had time, I could have looked up the directions online. I tried asking the Information official at the San Bruno BART station, but it took her a while and a phone call to get something to tell me. I headed off, but soon it seemed to me I was going in the wrong direction. So I called my agency for directions. The recruiter couldn't tell me, but he suggested I call the business. So I did, and got the right directions. Fortunately, the lady at BART gave me a local map. I eventually made it. The business was called SmartSource Rentals, and they're a warehouse of computer hardware. They had me do some cleaning up. First they had me take some plastic boxes in their alley, and toss them in their dumpster. That was a big job, and I couldn't toss all the boxes, as the dumpster was getting full. Then they had me sweep up in the warehouse. Afterwards, I gathered debris from the alley to be hauled to the dump. I'd actually finished the work in half a day, so I got to leave early. So it wasn't an ideal day, but at least it was short! As for the assignment on the 21st, I'm still waiting on the details.
