    Just the banana.

    We are always happy to celebrate successes and have no real desire to know whether it's shelf stacking for minimum wage or working 7 hours a year for a billion pounds.

    Soon this place will have to renamed ex-contractorsuk.com

    No.

    How long were you looking seriously for and we’re you on bench
    I wasn't on the bench. I just called 'em up and said how about a permie job? First offer a bit low, so I pushed back and they offered me 10% more.

    Seriously NAT glad to see you are following in my footsteps admittedly 17 years later, enjoy the 360 reviews (and expense account)

    Did you have no contractor options at all or were the rates really bad so perm was worth it

    How long were you looking seriously for and we’re you on bench
