Hi all 👋🏾
It's been a minute and of course I fell off the wagon, have to keep blogging.
So I decided to take the job, though it's only $3k more than I currently make it will definitely help boost my career. The position is a HR manager's position, my goal is to work for the company just a year and a half and then look for something much closer to home.
The reason I took the job was because I'm in need of structure. My current employer, is a mess and I honestly see things getting worst with our new VP. I'm so stressed about this job, chest pains, exhaustion and just mentally drained. Everything is a rush. I am not saying that there won't be issues on the next job, but at least I'm transitioning from dealing with 10k+ employees with only two people to, about 400. Not to mention the pay discrepancies. The last person they hired had about 6 month experience in benefits, I have over 5 years, no degree, I have a masters and she made 7k more than me, plus I had to train her. I had to constantly ask for a raise. Finally got it about four months later and they didn't even have the decency to retro. Oh and I failed to mention, I was the senior benefits specialist, and she was the junior, go figure.
I haven't given my notice yet, because I'm waiting on all my background screenings to clear. I explained to the company that I was not giving my notice until everything cleared.
On a budgeting note, well lets just say April was a bust. I'll be crunching the numbers this week.
