So if you check out my recent posts, a lot has happened for me job-wise.
The cliffnotes version: I put in my notice to fulfill my dream of owning my own business, and then got counter-offered by my work and accpeted it.
Friday my big boss came in and we were supposed to hammer out the details. Basically what they offered me is a raise to do what I currently do.
I was promised a promotion with more resposibilty. They gave me a new job title, with NO new responsibility.
Then my assistant manager stuck her foot in her mouth. She said “we can pay someone less to do what you do. I think the intention is to keep you here until (desired position) becomes available.” to which I said “I want more responsibility. I feel pretty slighted that (big boss) didn’t say a word to me while I was here.” She had a pretty awesome follow up with “Yes, you will be doing the same things you were doing, now you’re just getting paid for it”.
Not only do I feel like this whole situation is the biggest joke ever, but now I feel like I’ve b een underpaid for the last 4 months.
I’m feeling more inclined than ever to walk away now. I should stay and collect the higher pay for a little while, but I’m SO PISSED.
Bees, help me sort my thoughts.
