I Changed Jobs and Took a Pay Cut

A few months ago I decided I had enough of my current position and that I needed a change.  I was tired of supervising and being responsible for everything on the teller line.  When they eliminated my office manager position in February, I decided to give the teller supervisor position a try.  I kept the same pay, but my job responsibilities greatly shifted.  Instead of being responsible for opening accounts, meeting sales goals, and managing the office, I was in charge of the teller line and spent every day working as a teller while supervising the staff.  It just wasn’t something I was interested in.  I figured I had a few options: quit and find a new job, look for a new position within the company, or go part time and transfer to a new branch.  All sounded good to me, but I didn’t really want to give up my 5 years seniority plus vacation time. I decided that the best idea would be to try to find a new position within the company.  I searched the available postings and […]

What is “Good Money”?

photo credit: TheTruthAbout… Have you ever wondered what “good” money is? Is there a such thing as “bad” money? I don’t think so.  I hear the term all the time, in various instances.  “He must make good money.” I’ve never heard someone say “He must make bad money.”  Unless it was someone talking about a poorly made counterfeit bill. 😉 It makes me wonder exactly what people view as “good” money.  I like to think I make a decent salary, but I don’t know if I’d consider it good money.  It pays the bills, and I have enough that I can pay down debt and focus on saving money at the same time. I know that there are wide salary ranges depending on the certain career path and location.  For example, a customer service representative in Milwaukee, Wisconsin may make $12 an hour, while a doctor there makes $100 an hour.  In California, the customer service representative may make $20 an hour and the doctor makes $200. I’m a firm believer in it’s not how much you make, it’s what […]

I Think I Hate my Job

I think I hate my new job. I don’t know if it’s necessarily that I don’t like the position, but I’m having a hard time going to work lately. I just don’t want to go and I have copious amounts of anxiety about it. It’s really not fun. I think part of the problem is that I went from being the office manager of my branch to being on the teller line which almost feels like a demotion. When I was the office manager, I sat at a desk all day and opened accounts, serviced customers, and worked on loans. Now I’m running transactions and providing customer service. Don’t get me wrong; I like it, but I think I feel like it’s a step down. To make matters worse, my coworker is now at the desk and I’m at the teller line and it’s almost degrading. I’m very thankful that my pay didn’t get cut and that I got to keep my job, but I’m almost wondering if I should have asked to be transferred to another location. I almost […]
