    eBay sounds like a really awesome company to work for! I remember your old entries on sausage and bread, hee. And they’re still your fav! I can see why you had 20 of those chocolate gold coins. They look so inviting in that treasure box!

      They do treat staff really well.. most multinational companies do though, Microsoft is like that too! 🙂

      I wish I’d used more sunscreen, didn’t realise it’ll be quite so warm! But getting some sun was so brilliant 🙂

    I am totally jealous! 😀 the working culture at ebay is definitely something I envy when I read your entries, Bev. any chance at a position or two up for grabs during grad recruitment-esque type positions for 2008? 😛

    I was amazed that eBay paid $10,000 just to hire the people to organise the Survivor games. Boy, I’m in the wrong field!

    I was discussing this with a friend over a coffee recently. He was telling me how he got sent on a course where they played a board game similar to monopoly, which was meant to teach something. I can’t remember what it was supposed to teach.

    The point is, some guy made a stupid board game and is getting paid thousands of dollars a week just for letting people play it on one of these courses!

      It’s insane how much these people make, for something relatively simple to run/organise! Like I said, I must be in the wrong field 😉
