You felt you deserved. If so, how did you handle it?
But, let's hear the story that prompted this thread.
Sometimes I got upset.. sometimes I cried... my wife heard a lot of cursing.. but everything happens for a reason.. I eventually landed something good that paid a lot of money and it worked out
Almost every day I tell myself I deserve a raise, then I look at the receivables and I tell myself no promotion.
Yup. I wiped my ass with all the Big Macs and went to work at Burger King.
Wear these and you will get the promotion.
The first time I sucked on it and figured it was a bit of an over sight.
The second time it was so blatantly political I left for a better job a few weeks later,none of my old partners thought I ever would leave
If you are good, you can get a better job if you're not you don't have a lot of options. I was good and leaving was a financial win for me and even better it was a tremendous stressful blow to my old owners I loved every minute of it. Still do, it made them look awful to all their customers
The grass is greener at a lot of other companies, take a chance and move on. Life's too short to compromise on your job particularly if it is borderline mediocre. A lot of owners, and I'm one now, are greedy mother fuckers that take as much as they can first. My company now we share in the wins and loses and everyone loves it. Great atmosphere
Bottom line don't get caught up in job titles or money get caught up in what you do. If your about a title or an income you may be happy for a short period of time but in the long run you'll lose. Like what your doing, be in a situation that rewards success financially and work hard and things will sort themselves out. I've seen more people quit over titles and it's stupid
I'm self employed and promote myself regularly but i cant afford to pay myself lately so its kind of bittersweet.
I don't know if I would call them promotions, but I have worked at places where I was promised the fast track to management. Of course, I fall for it, but they're really just trying to keep me around because I'm more competent and hard working than most. So they have someone who works at a manager-type level, without the pay and perks that would come with the official title.
I'm going through it right now with my current employer. If I were to quit suddenly, they would be seriously screwed. They pretty much allow me to pick up unlimited OT, which is fine, but I don't have the title I want, either. Hopefully, they will do the right thing when my next review comes; otherwise, I might have to pack my things and go.
Not to well unfortunately.
A long time ago, I felt I was in line for a management position and someone that I knew was less qualified got the job. I was bitter at 1st but kept it to myself. I just continued to do my job and after a while, I was promoted too and all was well. I eventually became the boss of the guy who was promoted over me. The key thing to remember is that the people who make the decisions to promote people are just people themselves who can and do make mistakes. If you see a trend where there is blatant favoritism or nepotism, then it's time to go find yourself a new place to work. Good luck.
Not a promotion but a different position. Folks with "connections" get many of the prime gigs. It is what it is. I just trudge through my job the best I can and try not to let political aspects of my job have an impact on my performance and interactions with the public.
Show up early, stay late.
Work harder, work smarter.
Treat every task like it's your business and it's your money.
Don't waste time worrying what everyone else is doing or how much they are making.
If you do these things eventually someone that matters should notice and do the right thing. If not move on.
never passed over but i have given up opportunities.
Just happened, recently. Although I'm not looking forward to meeting the person who's taking "my job" on 7/21, I'm trying to look at it as a good thing. That position will have more headaches than I currently have. Even though I kinda do that job already (on my own intiative), I make more money hourly than they will. However, me not getting it rules out tenure & the attached benefits. With that said, I still feel shitty that they didn't think I could do what I already do, but I try to maintain a positive attitude, especially at work (not easy, but doable).
Weren't the people at Disney asked to train 250 imagrents taking there jobs.
Everything happens for a reason.
I read that somewhere on here
yes, prob bc i was high at work....how did i handle it? got more high
