If I go on interviews and the temperature control is not set on a friendly setting, I make note of it
Have you ever been in a position where you needed to look for a current job? I have not been fired ever since I did not fold boxes at the donut shop for the Sunday crowd, so I have not been forced to look for work. However, I have changed jobs several times over our lifetime. Eventually, jobs become boring or bosses become jerks, or raises are inadequate, or whatever, and recently, I have begun being on the prowl for a current position. There are lots of things that important to me, not the least of which is pleasant working environment. That includes ergonomic office furniture and reliable Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C. If the furnace or air conditioner does not work well, it is miserable being in the office. In the office I work in now, our current boss and I are both hot-natured. All of us need to have an air conditioner plan that can be counted on to deal with over-50 hot flashes and her bursts of temper. If I go on interviews and the temperature control is not set on a friendly setting, I make note of it. I don’t want to accept a position where all the ladies are constantly turning the temperature control setting up in an effort to keep the office warmer. All those skinny young ladies are always doing that, and they are always wearing a jacket – even in July! Personally, I only use the furnace when it’s needed to keep our pipes from freezing, and I appreciate to be cooler rather than warmer. If the office environment needs better air conditioner, I need a better job.
