Work

January 25th, 2012 at 11:44 am

I wish there was an app for SA. Please forgive me, I'm using my phone and will probably have a ton of grammatical errors Smile

Long story short, I love my job but I need to make more money. Spoke with my boss who stated that our grant has money that is slated for salary increases; however, she really has no control over her budget, which by the way is the reason the other supervisor quit. Actually, we have enough money to start every one off between 40k-45k and still be able to provide raises. But the Agency starts us off between 30-33k. Last year I had to hire an attorney in order to receive my salary increase. That is a long story that I will have to explain another time, just know that my former boss provided me some info, she probably could have lost her job but i received my salary increase.
Further more, I explained to my new boss that we are taking on additional responsibilities with no salary increase, another reason why one of the coordinators left. So basically with in 1 year we lost one coordinator and one project director.

In the end, I just sent my resume off for two positions. One similar to what I'm doing and the other is a little different.

Basically I can say this, it's not really the raise I'm concerned about, it's the misuse of federal dollars that I'm more concerned about.

    Yes, the misuse of federal dollars. It is an unfortunate common problem. Best wishes with your new job search. Don't quit without another job though!

    Yes CreditCardFree it's very sad. Thanks for the tip, I definitely would not quit unless I had another job, it's tough out there
