WTF?


You know, when your boss tells you he wants to promote you, but doesn't want to give you a raise, it kind of defeats the purpose when he then puts out a want ad for the same position with a higher salary listed.

Yeah.

Sadly, this sort of thing happens all too often.

Re: beauracracy
I would be more impressed if this were a large corporation or a university, perhaps, but when it's a mom and pop kind of place...

Re: beauracracy
It's more likely to happen in a small place. Big places have policies (or unions and contracts) that specify what comes along with a promotion.

Bwahaha! Yes! Apply for the job! Say in your email or letter that you do those exact duties in your current job, and your current boss likes your performance enough to promote you, but he is unwilling to pay what you are worth, while the listed position pays more...
