I swear on my mother, who is deceased. I got promoted about 6 years ago. From one level consulting to another. My incompetent rat manager submitted my promotion but it was based on my base and not my total comp with OT. It actually ended up I was making less money. So I called HR….
I said very plainly. Why would I take a promotion to make less? She said well, it happens. I said well that doesn’t make sense and I don’t want it. I said it’s about making more money. Her response…
“You should just be happy you got promoted.”
This is the human waste we are dealing with. I laugh now cause I haven’t worked in about 5 years and I’m still employed by this circus.
Love you HR.
