I started there a year ago, as an entry level employee - but due to circumstances, I was doing management work. I basically opened our site a year ago when the contract was signed.
Due to all of this, I am kinda famous within the company. The 20 ( now 21) year old girl with no experience opened and ran the only site in my state that is not in jeopardy of losing the contract with my client.
Everyone in the company knows my name, every email that pertains to my site, I am copied on and most of the time, it is sent to me and my boss is copied. Everyone from corporate calls me to ask me questions or work on projects with me over my supervisor. My supervisor tried to give me HIS raise. He talks me up to corporate like crazy.
Sites across the country call me for help with site compliance documentation, help with cost savings, I am the only non management employee that has had the opportunity to attend manager weekends at resorts around the country every quarter.
I personally saved the company 100,000 dollars this year ( July to July )
As you can see - I am valued in my company, I love my job, and I have a pretty big ego when it comes to my job. I know I am great at it!
Today, I was informed by corporate, that I have received a promotion to assistant manager, as well as being placed on "The fast track to corporate management" . Training beginners next Monday with hopes that i will be working for the corporate office in 12 months.
All of this sounds great, right? Well I am kinda sad. Instead of being the famous, 20 year old girl that had to beg the company to give me a chance, and showed them that I was worth the investment. I am going to be just another assistant manager doing my job and training for corporate.
Of course, the money has doubled and im happy about that - but I like being a big deal
