Good news on the job front!

January 8, 2010 at 6:00 pm (salary)

I had my performance review today! I knew I am valued, do great work, blady blah. But with the economy the way it is, and knowing that across the board, the company on average is getting a 3% increase (I know since I’m doing 11 reviews for the employees I manage), I figured I’d be getting a $.50 raise. Instead I got a whole whopping $1!!!! Whoo hoo! I am so excited.

I’ve been there 3 years and 3 months. I started at $14/hr (for the first 3 months) and now I’m making $21/hr. That’s a 50% increase in salary in 3 years. Of course, I’ve had a big job shift (becoming a manager) with a significant increase in responsibilities half way through, so that can account for some of the large increase in salary.

I wish I could celebrate and have a drink now that I’ve just gotten home, but I have to go back to work in a few hours for some overtime, so better not or I’ll get all sleepy.
