New Job

May 1st, 2018 at 01:16 am

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.

    Congratulations Amber. I have to say that sometimes it is better to take a cut in pay if it means a better working environment. In finance, some months are better than other months but it seems you are back on the wagon. Welcome back!

    I was also going to say that after going from this emotionally draining job, are you going to take a short break to recharge before going into your new job?

    Thanks everyone!

    Though I'd loved to take some time off, I can't afford to. I really want to get things paid off.

    Congrats! Sure hope it is wonderful. Your old job sounds like a slap in the face -- you have more education and more experience and the newbie was brought in and made more. Don't blame you for high tailing it out of there.
