I’m mainly using this post to vent because I can’t vocally do it right now……
I’m so F*ING tired of hearing ‘you’re young’ when it comes to why I can’t get what I’m asking for at work.
I’ve heard (in a nutshell) “I hear your idea. Its good but you’re young. Therefore, you don’t know anything”
and now at my 1 year review, I get a raise of 4% (whoopie, now I’m making what I should have been making from the getgo and am still under paid for what I’m doing) and I ask about my vacation time….
Mind you- I have spent 6 weekend and 4 full weeks out of my state (don’t get to do jack shit but sit in a hotel and work the entire time) in the past year and my boss changed the vacation policy (as previously posted)
So I ask if I can get a couple more days. What do I get?
YOURE YOUNG. WE’VE ALL BEEN THERE. THE SALES GIRLS HAVE BEEN HERE LONGER AND THEY’D BE UPSET. ITS A PERK TO BE AT THE SHOW IN _____ CITY.
Are you f*ing kidding me?! My boss is 45 and has been with the company LEGALLY as long as I have. He takes off EVERY FRIDAY (52 days) and has had 5 week long vacations (45 days)….He has no clue what’s going on in the department ever and, yeah, works 3 hours over the weekend. Me at 26 (since everyone knows this) get 10. I came from a flex schedule which I do not have now and I can’t get upwards of 15 days. I was given the WRONG vacation policy to negotiate off of (which said I got 1 day) and he’s saying I never would have gotten more vacation days.
Un f*cking believable.
I know I’m being a whiney brat to many people on here right now but this is so freakin irritating. I got sold a false benefits package. Vacation time, 401(k) info, tuition reimbursement…all of it was false…..If I’m so young, why does the company policy state I’ll never have as much vacation as my boss? And on top of that, he’s so worried about appearances, yet everyone at this company that he’s worried about being upset that I have more days off than them HATES HIM because of how many days he’s out.
ARGH 1950s stereotyped office I work in….ARGH
Now to look for a new job or not to…..there’s no “HR” to go talk to about it either so its either move out or stay put
Anyone caught in the same boat as me?
