"Your supervisor will explain to you how it works. They aren’t going to give you a spreadsheet of everyone’s salaries and ranking though. That would be a dbag question to ask. HR even explained it in the early career financial class when I took it."
Yeah, they won't even tell you who is in your rank group. They won't tell you why you ranked the way you did. They won't tell you how to improve in any meaningful way. Think about it. If they said you are with Bob, Sally, and Sue. You might go, "Oh! Yeah! I see what those people do, and I can incorporate some of the good things that they do."
"You are in x/3 and you moved up/down."
Why are you wasting my time with this meaningless cr-p?
Come in on your off-time and work special projects? This one is really meaningless when you work the Dupont schedule and already work extra hours every shift.
Do some LPOs? Yeah that will impress management. You know what this does? It allows management to criticize you for taking extra time for anything they don't like about your LPO.
Face the facts.
The employee rank system is designed to keep you cutting throats, to see who will do it, and promote those people. It's not designed to foster cooperation or efficiency. It's not designed to reward good workers. It is the problem. 360 review never saved anyone.
