i posted this in ontopic too. I want a wide variety of opinions. im always posting here but now i would like some advice now too please. im thinking in an emotional state and its not productive. ok so I work for a trash and transportation company part time during school semesters (mon-wed-fri) and take classes all day tues/thurs. ive been working here for about 1 year and 2 months. on our companys property, we have a shop where the mechanics, shop manager, the guy beneath the shop manager and the parts guy is and the office building. ive been working in the office building as assistant to the safety manager, assistant to the hr manager and I manage the gps system installed in our fleet of trucks. I started off at $10 and got a raise to $10.50 after a year. I think im getting underpaid but thats just my opinion. when I first got the job here I told management I had no interest in working out in the shop. today my boss tells me they want me out in the shop on monday to start as the guy who inputs all of the inventory, parts, boring mindless work into the computer, for 8 fucking hours a day plus my previous responsibliities. he called it a promotion demotion. demotion because im moving out into the shop and a promotion because im getting more work. no fucking mention of a raise. i didnt laugh. im fucking pissed but i kept my poker face on. so im angry because im out in the shop now, my job now entails doing boring mindless work that I fucking hate that is giong to drive me bat shit crazy. I guess I have done enough here to put it on my resume for when im done with my degree. pros of job: 1. works around my school schedule 2. isnt hard but boring as fuck at the same time 3. pay could be worse 4. its a job, economy is bad cons of job: 1.takes 1 hour to drive to work and 1 hour to drive home from work every day 2. now im going to be where I told them I did not want to work at when I first started here. apparently im the only one smart enough to properly type in work orders to the computer. COME THE FUCK ON. 3. im going to be doing boring mindless work that does not improve my resume or real life skills. im going to be parts boy on the computer. 4. pay really blows ($10.50/hr) for having to drive 2 hours a day total to and from work 5. maybe I could find work closer to home working part time for $12-15 an hour? im pissed off and emotional right now, my boss told me about 30 mins ago and havent said anything yet. I need some logical advice from ontopic. thanks guys.
