We got thrown up the back of some workshop with desks and a chair and told to set up our own computers, fair enough we do IT. This workshop was freezing, no heating, I had to literally hunt down someone to find me a heater. I mean I live in Scotland for fuck sake. So after the first week the other guy left (HALLELUJAH!!!) and I got moved into an office eventually, not bad there is a microwave and some pretty cool people. Got told they couldn’t pay me what they initially said they could so my wages got put down, bummer.
