I got a promotion back in November–that’s an entire quarter ago. Thought I’d be happier in the position. Well, now I am managing people and working 60+ hours a week. It’s exhausting. I was promised a raise with the extra responsibility. And I STILL have yet to see it. Even though I am salary I am making near min. wage in a director position. I have repeatedly talked to the president of the company and every time I get an excuse “The CFO is out of town. We’ll meet Monday…” and so on. So after three months of this and barely being able to pay my bills or sleep, I’m pretty pissed. Well, that’s not the best part–the best part is that the people I am SUPERVISOR to are making a lot more money than I am AND have a parking spot AND only work 38 hours a week (if that). So I get stuck with all the blame for anything that goes wrong (even when it has nothing to do with me), I have to clean up people’s shitty jobs constantly so that they are presentable, and I’m not getting paid to do any of this.
Then there’s one entire department of little Barbies that make life miserable for the rest of us because people think they’re “cute”.
I’m glad to have a job, but does it REALLY have to be so awful!
