The powers that be!

I have this job and I really good at it. I cover even my bosses ass and I am at the point where I am really fed up covering for everyone. We are losing people left and right and not only am I filling in for other people not in my "area" but I am training the new people hired.

It has been a few months since I had a raise but damn, I am doing my boss' job and I should be making more right? Then I found out one of the other directors gave notice and I was told I was next in line to move up. Well I'm not it seems as they offered it to someone else. Granted it is someone who has been with the company longer and works in that facility. So do I ask for that job or just say fuck it and leave?

I was also offered a consulting job making more money. They are currently asking me to spare as much time as possible to work around my schedule but they hinted they wanted to hire me full time. Bleh!

I love my job, I just hate feeling used.

Let's be honest...in every job you are being used. You are paid for your time.

I know its cliche' but be patient. Sounds like things are in the works for you...and if you are not first in line, it sounds like you are certainly in the top 3 to 5. If you just got a raise a few months ago...I would hold out for at least another year. If by then things don't go the way you like, move on. I have always told people that the way to get a raise and get promoted is to get a new job somewhere else.

Good luck!
