New Job, Maybe, Increase in Pay

February 23rd, 2018 at 12:57 pm

I received a call from a recruiter at my job, out of the blue. She said that she had found my resume on Indeed. She wanted to know if we could chat. I said yes.

So she goes on to tell me about company X, she wanted to know if I had heard of them. I say no. She then tells me how they're the biggest producer of XYZ, I say to her what's the name of the company? She tells me again and I say OMG I'm sorry I thought you'd said something else. Of course I have heard of X, my dad worked there for 30+ years and retired in the mid 90s. We go on to talk about how I grew up near x and how my dad loved working for them and that I would simply be honored to work for an organization that my father was so proud of. We had a really great chat. She asked if she could forward my resume on to the hiring manager, I say of course.

Long story short, this company is a huge one, they provide stocks, pensions etc you don't have companies like this one anymore. Just the simple fact that 25 years later, and the opportunity to work at a place my dad loved is amazing

It's a hour and a half away, but I already drive a hour with less pay and benefits. Plus my dad had a house out there that I could live in for free.

Finally got my raise, I've been asking since November, not what I wanted but it's, $7k more than I was making. I also sold and item on Poshmark, made $16 so I'm okay.
