Work decision

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
AHHHH, ok sorry I just feel like screaming. I've worked as an Engineer Technician for the same company for 8 years. They have paid me peanuts & I've had no opportunity for advancment. I've got a bachelors degree in Behavioral science & I was going for a second degree in Industrial Engineering. The lack of advancment & the LONG years it would take to get my 2nd bachlors made me decide to go back for my masters in Counseling. Well this week our plant manager told me that should I decide to go back to engineering I would be up for a promotion. There was no talk of money, but it would probably be more than I will make when I'm done with my masters. I go back to school on Tuesday, but I'm no longer sure it's the right thing to do. I would not need a degree for the promotion, but if I ever wanted to work in a differnt industry I would. Frankly I'm sick to death of going to school & having NO life. I just don't know what to do. I'm super upset & I'm so tired of living in a tiny little appartment & working my tail off for northing. It's just so hard, I don't know what to do. I don't need advice because believe me everyone in my life had advice for me. I just need to vent.

Do you like what you do now? Or would you rather get into counseling?

Personaly unless you get something in writing saying that you WILL receive a promotion, I wouldn't trust them. If you're not getting the pay now, how do you know its going to be worth it once your done? You could see a 10K raise or a 1K raise.

Plus are they willing to pay for school? That's another thing you need to consider. If they don't, but promise a promotion, I wouldn't really trust them (unless again something is in writing).

Good luck though!
