He notes I've been there almost 11 years, great track record, only one write-up in that time(BS write up from a former supervisor), and above average attendance record. Well, he tells me he's been talking to HR, and he has some bad news.........

    They are bumping me up from $11.50 to $14/hr, which is almost top pay for my department.

    Normally, you aren't bumped that high until at least 15 years on the job. However, when I am needed in other departments or on special projects, I get-r-done. I've already decided first order of business is to pay off my emergency credit cards, and start saving for a couple of new toys.

    Sometimes no one notices. Sometimes someone notices, but there is no money to make a statement. It says quite a bit about you that you were doing a good job and didn't expect a pay raise like that. FANTASTIC that they noticed and they could do something about it. It seems to me they are wanting to send a strong signal that they want you to stick around. A job well done!

    Congrats!

    I've retired from chemical plant work. Great money, not so great work environment. But, working for a major company, you see some REALLY stupid evaluation schemes. I prefer working for a small business or company, personally, even if the pay isn't quite there.

    Congratulations.

    P.S.: Isn't it nice to have a supervisor that recognizes you for the positive things you do on a regular basis, and not the rare mistake you might make?

    Congratulations, job well done!!!
    I have often heard that "Change is Good". If this is a fact, why does history tend to repeat itself so often. I'm guessing that it is so we can learn from our mistakes that change is good?

    Simple: When I don't need to carry them, they stay locked in the gun safe. I normally try to use them for less than $50 each, then pay off 95% of the balance on payday. Recently, though, they both got used for some nice sales on reloading supplies and a road trip to surprise the youngest.
