    Been at the same company for 3 years and never got a bad review or any write ups. Got passed over for a job promotion. I'm super pissed and don't know how to deal.

    There is always an "inside track" and if you don't know about it, you ain't on it. Best response is to talk to your boss or better an "executive sponsor" about how you can better position yourself for consideration on the next opportunity. If they blow you off...be happy with what you got, or start looking.

    Been in your spot and in the other...trick is how you respond.

    The fact that you think not getting a bad review or written up helps justify a promotion leads me to believe you're not as good as you think you are.

    If you have a good boss, I would ask her in a non confrontational manner what you could do to make yourself worthy of the promotion. Or you could take a job at a competitor or another company if you believe you're worth more.

    I got passed over a couple times (years ago), so I left to a competitor company. Guess who called 6 months later to give me an even better job.
    I went back for a year and then left to do my own thing.

    Bingo. A friend of mine worked for a good company but wasn't getting anywhere. After 3 years or so, he left. I asked him 'why?' He said "I've been there 3 years and they still haven't shown me the secret handshake."

    You are a pretty lazy poster. As an example i'll just point to that circus thread you made with no linked video.

    You are probably the same way at work.

    :lol: He's got a point. Maybe if you got off the fucking internet and I dunno, did your job, you'd have gotten that promotion...
