2023.06.01 14:50 Feisty-Pollution-879 Starting salary

Hello! I'm in the interview process for an entry level dietitian job at a long term care facility. My situation is a little different as I would be working as a dietitian but I am not an RD (got the degree but then went on to have 4 kids and didn't do the internship). Technically I'd be working under an RD, and would be doing foodservice, clinical, charting, acting as a manager. They want to know what kind of salary I'm looking for and I really have no idea what to ask for. I'm in Michigan, but in the Upper Peninsula which is quite rural. I'm looking at what they pay their other employees to get an idea (up to 22.85/hr for CNA, 16/hr for activities attendant, 18/hr for cook). My degree is worth something, however my lack of license also means I will make less than an RD would. Can anyone guide me?

My fiancé and I are looking at moving to Hawaii in September. I am a CNA (make about $21/hr and my fiancé does payroll ($26/hr). Wondering if anyone else has had similar jobs and if it’s hard to find jobs on the island. Also we are just looking at renting a one bedroom and wondering if our salaries would be enough to make it on the island. If anyone has any experience or advice, it would be much appreciated!

2023.05.28 16:26 siyans I dont understand the concept of money.

if you are lazy here the TLDR:
for me the concept of making money and just the idea of the "economy" just make no sense, its all boils down to what people think, speculation and based on literally no real "logic" sense or there no real way to "understand" it. You have to take advantage of someone somewhere, either because they are unaware, because they are "stupid" or "dumb", either financially or just their brain power, or the person has so much she doesnt care enough.
Its been a while and I have been trying very hard to understand the idea of money, but no matter how hard I try I feel like I just don't understand. The concept of "making money" is greatly "scummy" and "scammy", all this idea is all about how well you can "scam" someone to pay way way to much for something that has such a small value. A small example is when you see restaurant or such selling you a bottle of water at 3$+, to me its just purely scummy that the way for you to make money is to push a customer to pay literally 10-15X the price of something they could have got by themselves for way less. (a bottle of water is about 0.25$-0,30$ per bottle if you buy a box), I just dont get how morally inert you could feel by doing such gouging.
Also there part of life where a person, by doing literally nothing can get more money. If you look at any kind of investment, you put money in the bank, in stock market, foreign exchange or bitcoin (and such) and with some time, you get more money. How is that logical, you can literally make money from thin air, I thought that the way to make money was: you had to bring some kind increased value of a product or service, but here, nothing at all.
then you start looking at just city near you, then you start going deeper and deeper and look at other country, at that point, those idea are literally thrown out of the window, where the same object with similar popularity can highly highly differ in price for no good reason other than where it is geographically, huh? Again, same similar example of the bottle of water, just in my district you can find them at around 1.50$ but the moment you start going more downtown, 2$, 2.50$, but how? why? this make no sense, its the same object.
another point is the problem of no real ceiling, the more money people make, the more the thing cost, someone having a 30k annual salary will eventually be push down way more than someone getting 75k, I see that more and more, back then in 2010 my salary was 20k and was living not that badly, now my salary is nearly 30k but I feel like I can spend for less stuff. A richer person have way more and easy possibility of making more money than someone with less. With just 1 millions you can just put it in the bank at 5-6% and you get nearly more than an average annual salary. Thus making the rich richer and make the poor have harder time to push themselves up.
I could go on and on and on and be so extremely sentimental and passionate on how all this idea is just non sense and is all about profiting from someone at some point and personally, morally speaking, I dont why I should profit from someone being unaware or "dump" to pay 3$+ for a bottle a water when the person could have gotten it for less than a 1$...
So I just dont see why I should participate in a such morally wrong system where there no rules and people cna do whatever they want as long they have money...

2023.05.26 23:52 Hopeful-Key965 Needing Career Advice

Hi everyone!
Tl;dr: I've went through a few different jobs. Presently going for nursing. I don't want to do that anymore. I'm needing advice on a good and stable career outside of health care (I'm willing to go to college for it).
I'm really struggling. I'm 28 years old and have a different set of jobs I've had. I was doing inventory management for a small consignment store, worked at a grocery store, worked at a doughnut shop in production, and have currently been a CNA for over 6 years.
I started going to school for nursing a few years ago. I just got my Associates in Science. The plan was to become an RN. My grades are good. All my pre-reqs are good. The issue? I hate it. I love taking care of people, or at least I thought I did, but working in the field as a CNA, I found I no longer want to do it.
I'll do anything else. If it needs college, I don't mind. I'll go learn whatever I need to (turns out I'm a good student). But anything that isn't customer service related (or if it is, just as long as I'm not wiping a patients bottom lol) will do.
I've been told to find my passion. My passion is history and learning. I don't want to teach because I don't have the patience for it. So anything else - anything. The only requirements I'm looking for is a decent salary (around $60-70k), it can be working days or nights but I'd prefer a daytime job, and I'm willing to work hard so long as the work is equal to the pay.
I feel crazy needing advice but I really do. I have no idea what other jobs I need to seek. I'm 28 and still lost. Others have an actual passion and they love their jobs. I'm just trying to find a field outside of health care.

2023.05.26 10:17 AffectionateStay3604 Things You Should Be Aware Of CNA Programs and Sterile Processing Exam

Becoming a certified nursing assistant is a big step in the correct direction. You should know six things about CNA Programs Vallejo before enrolling in one and becoming a nurse's aide.
  1. You'll need a certain background to qualify for a CNA training program:
First, you should know that requirements must be met before enrolling in a CNA program. Your state may impose some of these demands, while the institution you attend may impose others.
  1. You must have your CPR certification to graduate from your programs:
You must learn how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to complete your CNA Programs Bay Area. It would be best if you didn't have any trouble getting this education because most schools incorporate it into their CNA School near Me.
  1. Clinical attendance is a requirement in online courses:
Online learning has grown increasingly popular for students unable to attend classes physically. You should realize, however, that even if you enlist in a fully online CNA Program Fairfield Ca, you will still be required to participate in several clinical training sessions at various locations. The training institution's campus may or may not be the site of these meetings.
  1. Certificate programs for nursing assistants are the norm:
You should also note that CNA training programs do not lead to a formal degree. A certificate as a nurse's aide will be yours to keep once you've finished the required training and passed the competency exams. The essential need to become certified as a nurse's assistant is to pass your state's CNA certification exam and this certificate will allow you to do just that.
  1. Prerequisites for Nursing Assistant Training:
CNA training programs have relatively few prerequisites: In most cases, the only educational requirements are a high school certificate or GED and the financial resources to cover the cost of further study.
But these certification necessities for CNAs can change from one state to the next. As a result, you should verify it before enrolling in nursing assistant classes.
If you plan to pursue a medical career after graduating high school, consider enrolling in a few science, math, and human anatomy courses while still in school.
  1. Find Local CNA Training Programs:
Community colleges, vocational institutions, and technical universities provide CNA training program. Online CNA courses may also be available from community colleges, vocational institutions, and technical institutes.
Online programs like these cater to students who have demanding schedules and would otherwise have to drop out of school.
  1. Verification of Sterility:
The short time spent in education necessary to earn certification in Sterile Processing Technician Schools Near Me is a major perk of working in this field. Making a certificate or degree in sterile processing in as little as three months is possible.
Certification is usually required for entry-level positions in Sterile Processing Exam technology. However, the certificate is likely to be necessary for some jobs. Gaining professional recognition through certification is a terrific method to increase your salary and job satisfaction.
Researching the program's prerequisites, length, and CNA exam preparation offerings would be best before enrolling.

2023.05.25 04:08 justlurkinheres Salary negotiation

What’s up my Zyprexa Zaddies. I’m curious as to how and even if anyone has negotiated their salary for a new staff job?
I will be offered a position soon for a staff job that is at a similar hospital from my current job and I’m a little disappointed in the recruiter telling me what my salary offer may be.
Any tips or advice for how I might negotiate my salary to be at least equal to my previous job?
I’m coming in with two years of experience in a very high acuity Level 1 trauma center with previous CNA experience and I already hold multiple certifications that they won’t have to pay for.

2023.05.22 00:34 the_misanthrope_ Can I go to nursing school after failing to get a BS in biology?

Hello all! I am a 27, almost 28 year old who wants to go for LPN. I'm not sure if RN is in my future, but if it is I'll cross that bridge when I get there. Anyway, I went to a four year university right after high school because I thought that was my only option. I switched my major 3 times before leaving with an AS in health science. Ironically that took exactly 4 years. I got married and moved to a new state where I attempted school again but it just didn't work out. I was working 3 PT jobs while my husband got his PhD, earning a meager GSI salary. So at age 23, with an unintentional associates degree and the most horrific transcript imaginable, I finally gave up. Fast forward five years. Hubby finished school, moved us to Texas and I don't have to work in order for us to survive. No kids yet so I have no other commitments. I'm just really worried that my current transcript will deter me from getting in. Surprisingly, I have passing grades in all prereq classes. Hopefully those still transfer after all this time. As for experience, I've held a couple medical receptionist positions and I actually got my CNA certification while stumbling through undergrad. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a job in my hometown (Bumfuck, GA) so that certification experied. Is there any hope for me or should I just consider another career path?

2023.05.21 06:40 RID-5603vjky One day I will be able to live on my own just needed that money.

A bit of background about me: I am a Filipino-American residing in the United States. I immigrated to this country from the Philippines in 1999 at the age of seven, accompanied by my mother. As I've grown, I've begun to realize various aspects about my parents that puzzle me.
Note: I've chosen to use ChatGPT to help write these thoughts because I find it challenging to express them clearly for others to understand.
Why haven't we saved up any money to buy our own home?
My parents and I have been living in a shared home with other family relatives here in the US. When I was thirteen, I often found myself questioning why we never had enough money to purchase our own home. Curiosity led me to investigate my parents' finances, sifting through their bills and debts, and it was no surprise that I discovered they were financially irresponsible.
My mother has purchased multiple properties in the Philippines, arguing that it would be a wise investment that could yield a significant return. However, since she first acquired her property, its value has remained stagnant and, in fact, is currently quite low. To make matters worse, these properties are in such a poor state that they barely look valuable. Whenever I bring up the topic of improving their condition by investing some money, my mother seems unconcerned. This makes me question the prudence of her property investment, especially considering that the locations are not particularly desirable.
Compounding the issue, my mother is burdened with a $10,000/yr property tax bill from the Philippines. Meanwhile, both my parents frequently express their desire for their own home in United States and lament about their occasional disagreements living in our current shared home. However, given the state of their finances, it's easy to understand why they don't have a significant amount in savings.
To provide further context:
  • My dad has developed a habit of visiting casinos, where he regularly spends around $1,000 on gambling.
  • They recently financed a new 2023 Mitsubishi Outlander, which has added more than $50,000 to their existing debts.
  • On top of this, they are already making monthly payments of over $2,000 towards existing debts.
  • Recently, my mother had her work hours reduced and is now struggling to keep up with her debt payments, including the installments for the new car she financed.
It is these details that underline the ongoing financial difficulties my family faces and perhaps provides a deeper insight into the root cause of our situation.
I don't care about my mom's property in the Philippines and if they die somehow I don't want to be with what crap they or not paid attention about owning a piece of real estate. (Ex: Insurance, Maintenance, Etc...)
In 20+ years my parents only have $20k in their savings account, how is that even possible?
Look! I have worked part-time jobs all my life and the amount of money I have in my savings is $50k for two years since I been on that job, on a minimum wage salary. But that is the money that stays put in my savings and never get touch because I was smart enough taking 20% of that original money ($60k) to put $10k in my checking for my monthly expenses mostly car insurance and car repaimaintenance fees. How is it possible for my parents not have $100k or more? I already got this answer a long time ago. Please note I am looking forward to have $150k or more in my saving hoping one day I will be ready to live on my own apartment with my own set of rules, guidelines, and freedom I longed but the issues I face is money at the moment.
I have my own car and some cushions if I happened to be kicked out I should be set for a couple of months I needed to suck-it-up and grow my savings a bit higher.
They have lived in America and still rely on their son for "English" and now "Internet/Smart-phone/Facebook/TikTok'" issues that they supposedly keep getting.
I've often wondered why my parents never made the effort to learn English, taking adult classes like many others do. Please understand that I'm now fully aware of the situation and frankly, I've become quite indifferent to it. My mother once told me that she didn't see the need to learn English because she noticed that some Spanish-speaking people weren't learning it either. I find this reasoning both illogical and indicative of a lazy attitude, particularly coming from my own mother.
Parents never seeing their own hypocrisy or damages.
Every issue, problem, or setback I've faced, such as struggling with school attendance or saving money, seems to invariably link back to my parents. The reason I didn't pursue college was due to a lack of funds and the necessity of a car - a responsibility that should have been addressed when I was a teenager. I remember negotiating with my mother (who I refer to as my Nmom), expressing my desire to obtain my driver's license. Yet, six months later, she changed her stance and instead insisted that I become a nursing aide, eventually progressing to a registered nurse (RN).
She often used her friend's son as an example for me to emulate. He works as an RN, earns a considerable income, and is supposedly a model of success. However, my personal interests align with computer science, not nursing. Despite this, I haven't been able to start, let alone finish, a college journey in this field. This stasis can be attributed primarily to my father's (or Ndad's) actions.
When I first began college, my Ndad was my ride to school. However, he soon became irritated by my lack of a car and driver's license, an issue that should have been rectified by my Nmom. It's worth mentioning that she had previously discouraged me from focusing on obtaining my driver's license, hence my Ndad's frustration. Eventually, my Ndad decided he would rather watch his favorite shows on the Filipino channel TFC, like Eat Bulaga and a soap opera about a character named Rico-Rico, instead of driving me to my classes.
This refusal resulted in me having to drop out of college and concentrate on job hunting, something that ideally should have been taken care of before graduating from high school. This would have allowed me to save enough money to buy my first used car. Regrettably, this didn't transpire, and I was left with no choice but to find a job, save money, and finally obtain my driver's license and car.
This sequence of events led me to work two jobs and endure long hours, all the while grappling with the inevitable bouts of depression that came along the way.
My parents forced me to take a loan on everything after high school.
My mother advised me to take Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) classes and to enroll in community college to save money. However, she also advised me to take out loans to finance these endeavors, as my parents were never transparent about their financial and personal information when we filed for FAFSA.
When I chose to drop out of college and instead focus on securing a job, saving money, and getting my driver's license, the onus fell upon me to accomplish these milestones later than most. I didn't obtain my driver's license until I was 23 and didn't acquire my first car until I was 25.
My mother influenced me to purchase a used 2002 Cadillac Deville DHS for $2,000, which was all I had in my savings at that time. She assured me that the car was a good choice because she had a verbal agreement with my older cousin, who had said he would buy it back from me later. However, this never materialized. Less than a month after purchasing and registering the car, it broke down.
The financial strain was immense; I spent over $2,000 and took out a credit card loan to pay for car insurance on a vehicle that was no longer operational. I was paying $500 a month for this insurance while working a minimum wage job. During this time, I was still driving my dad's car, which also broke down and cost me nearly $3,000 in repairs. At the end of the year, when the car finally gave out entirely, my mother pushed me to buy another car.
What frustrated me the most was my inability to negotiate a reasonable plan with my mother, who displays narcissistic tendencies. I proposed a plan to work for a year until I had saved $12,000, half of which I would use as a down payment on a used car valued between $10k and $15k. This plan, however, fell on deaf ears.
Despite the setbacks, I managed to secure a used car from a dealership for $10,000. The previous year, I had been diligently building my credit using a secured credit card, and I had achieved a credit score of over 900. This allowed the dealership to find a bank that was willing to loan me $10,000, with a down payment of $1,000. At the time of purchase, I only had $2,000 in savings.
This entire ordeal plunged me into a deep depression. I didn't manage to pay off all my debts until I was 30, and it was at that point I decided to continue working my unfulfilling job for another two years until I had $100,000 in savings, finally enabling me to distance myself from this troubling situation.

Nonprofits are public about salaries. So Im wondering how much your CNO gets paid? One of my last CNOs was getting paid 500K a year. My mind is blown with how big of salaries these administrators get but cant staff the unit with an extra nurse or CNA. Heres the website I used to look up nonprofits attached

2023.05.05 16:17 visualck Nursing path for 34 year old without college degree

Hi all, I know something like this gets asked MULTIPLE times per month/week, but I wanted to get everyone's insight on my specific situation (as admissions staff have been less than helpful so far). I just turned 34 in March, I have a family (wife and two twin 3 yr olds), and a good job (software engineer). I have about 40 college credits under my belt from various majors since graduating from high school in '07 with a cumulative 3.7 GPA (not a ton of science classes).
Basically I tried and tried and tried to graduate, but I feel like I was never set on my major and gave up on it. I went from audio engineering, to athletic training, to exercise science, and even a few comp sci classes, but I just couldn't ever stay long enough to see the finish line.
Fast forward to late 2018, I got the itch to do web dev and software so I spent the better part of a year teaching myself. Putting in at least 40 hours per week of learning, studying, reading, building, etc. In 2020 we found out we were pregnant, so I made the decision to attend a bootcamp (my wife was still working then) to try to expedite the 'job getting' process. It worked! I was the first of my cohort to get a job (before the bootcamp ended). I literally went from making around $30k to $70k in about 3 months. I now make just a bit north of $80k which affords my wife to stay at home (I also work from home with a flexible job) until the kids get into preschool in the next year or so.
Even though it seems like everything is going really well, I feel like the work I do doesn't really 'mean' anything. I'm in eCommerce and I love what I do, I enjoy the challenge, I like the puzzle and problem solving, but I've always had an itch (see previous 'health' related majors) to help people in other ways. I just feel like I'm wasting away sitting in front of a computer at home. I miss interacting with folks, as crazy as it sounds, I crave the grind of working on a problem with a team and really, truly making an impact in someone's life. I've always thought about medicine or healthcare, but never really thought I could attain it. After what I've been through without a degree, I know I can do just about anything I set my mind to now.
Enter Nursing. I know it's drastically different from what I'm doing now, like in almost every way. I know that there are going to be nights, weekends, holidays, family time may take a hit at times, stress levels rise, sleep may suck, but even after all of that (and I've thought about this for a while now), I still feel like it's a calling for me. I've seen the impact of a good health staff and how they can really make an awful situation easier for a family and patient (my dad passed in 2012 of stage 4 lung cancer).
My burning question, and admittedly something I'm not great at navigating is this: where do I start down this path? I know I need some classes to get into a nursing program. Should I just look at a few programs that I'm interested in and see what they require? How will I know if I'm 100% taking the right classes at say a community college (most likely scenario)? Also, is there any value in becoming an EMT or CNA first? Has anyone else had experience with having a family and going to nursing school? I'd most likely still have to work full time as my wife won't be able to make up my entire salary alone.
Thanks for reading through all of this, I know it's long, I just wanted to put my story out there as I feel like it's sorta unique from what I've read so far on this sub. Thanks so much all! Don't be afraid to tell me I'm crazy, my wife has alluded to it already haha.

EDIT: Also, riddle me this, why are nursing prerequisites not part of the degree? When I was an exercise science major, all of the science prerequisites were just part of your first/second year. Why would you need to do all of this course work just to get into the program? How are you supposed to afford 30 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student? Weird...

2023.05.04 21:21 GorillaGrip68 Just now realizing that working full time, I make under 30k a year.

I work in the trauma/neuro ICU at a large hospital in the Missouri area. I’m a semi new grad RN and live with roommates so I was honestly just excited to get my first big girl job and see so many things. I noticed my low pay when doing taxes a few months ago and told myself “it’s because I had a student position last year!” but now I’m working full time. I got bored today. looked at workday, saw my earnings for 2023, and did some math and my mouth dropped. I hear about everyone else making so much money and I wonder is it because they pick up extra shifts? I only work 3 12-13s a week. I’m just a bit surprised I guess. Edit: My take home monthly is ~$2200 ish a month- this is after deducting taxes, 401k, etc. I recently was a resident in Illinois, and work in Missouri, could this be why my paychecks are so low? Am I getting taxed too highly? After taxes I make ~17/hr. My base pay is $23. No, I’m not a CNA.
Edit #2: Thank you to everyone who commented and sent me messages. I knew my salary was low but I didn’t realize how low it was. I certainly didn’t realize new grads had a base pay of $30-40 either. Anyway, I’m going to look for jobs at different hospitals. I’ve been hesitant to because I really like the culture/staff at my place and have got to know all of our frequent flyers. As started earlier, this is a large hospital that I’ve learned a lot at- it’s a level 1 trauma center. It does have a reputation for low pay though but when I applied here, my only concern was getting experience at such a hospital, and not the pay. Now that I have bills and big girl responsibilities, my mindset has changed obviously😅 Thanks again, y’all 💜

2023.04.30 16:12 WoefulDelegation Looking to make a career change.

I currently am a corrections officer for my local county sheriffs office. I am wanting to make a change and get into healthcare. I have read a lot on this subreddit this morning and just wanted to know what you guys think and seek your advice. From what I can tell, becoming a CNA is the fastest way to get into the healthcare field (and oftentimes a popular first step). I wanted to know where to even begin in getting educated (college degree? Degree program?). I am also interested in the average salary as it seems to wildly differ. Would I be taking a significant pay cut if I currently make $39K (about $17ish an hour after benefits) a year? I am looking forward to the switch as I’d like to use my ability to operate under pressure in a more positive manner than working in a county jail. I also am no stranger to being short staffed. Any advice or thoughts of any kind would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

2023.04.28 10:15 Pretty_Parfait311 Burnt out and want to quit the whole show.

I’ve been working in assisted living for about almost a year and half now at my facility. I’m so burnt out from having two floors of 30+ people ( ostomy care, adls, my whole med pass, getting people to breakfast- acuchecks and insulins) all on me to do in two hours. My coworkers fail their tests so they don’t have to do some of the care which puts more work on me. Then after being here with that insane ratio the dayshift workers are 20 minutes late every shift. Our breaks are taken automatically and I never get one. I’m told this is the way it is. I’m working on my cna now to get a higher salary but all this work for a pca is crazy. I’ve been doing bedside care in different places for about 10 years but I’ve never seen a place like this.
I needed to vent so badly but also need some validation, am I being a baby because everyone here is making me feel like I should just shut up and be the door mat.

2023.04.25 22:22 wholecontentonly I'm Ready to Make the Jump... Any advice?

23 year old male here. I currently work in a customer support role that involves high amounts of travel. I am on track to make about 80k-90 this year, which is pretty great for a single person living in a state with an incredibly low cost of living. (My rent is only $575 for a 1 bed/1bath, if that gives you any context.)
Anyways, I'm looking to change careers. I enjoy the financial security, but I hate that my life revolves around my job. I don't have set hours or days, I often work 12-16 hour weeks, they can send me wherever they want with as little as 2 or 3 days notice, and the company culture here is awful. People quit very often. I've started taking the stress of this job home for me, which is a major red flag.
I've been working with a 3rd party recruiter to place me with an agency. She said that if I earn my P&C license, she could place me with an agency pretty quickly for a remote sales role. Pay would be salary + base, but that exact number depends completely on the agency.
I'm scheduled to take my P&C exam on the 16th of May. I was planning to use Kaplan for my study materials, but if anyone has a better idea, I'm all ears.
I don't expect to make anywhere near my current pay, and I expect this to be challenging. I know that there's a risk associated with switching jobs, but I feel like I've taken the appropriate steps to prepare for it:
-When I quit my currently job, they have to pay out my pending commission in full (about 4k currently)
-I can pay my bills on $2,500/month (hoping the base will cover this)
-I have 2-3 months savings
-If times get really tough, I have my CNA license and experiencing in bartending to get me by.
This is something I've been thinking about doing for a while. I've seen how insurance sales has worked wonders for other people in my life, and I want that too. I want a job that is more aligned with my lifestyle, and I'm committed to putting the work in. It's worth it to me to take a pay cut if I know that I'm going to build something that lasts.

My Questions:
-Are there questions I should be sure to ask my recruiteagency owner
-For those of you working in P&C how much do you make? (please specify years of experience and how pay is structured)
-Is there anything else I should be mindful of? Maybe things you wished you knew going into it

2023.04.25 15:49 GangNailer How to get a raise at a University?

Been working full time at a public University in a professional (not professor) role for over 8years now, and though I like. My job, it's been getting more and more work with less support and riases that don't match inflation.
In this job I get amazing benefits, but bad salary, with no bonuses and 1% raises. Latest ríase to be 3%, and all riases that go accross the university must be approved by the board of regents.
Individual Raises based on merit/performance virtually don't exist, as HR will fight you and your supervisor tooth and nail to get you nothing.
Recently in my role I was "promoted" to director of the program I operate. With no raise.
Note asking for a raise is complicated and I always get the same answer, that it's up to HR. But my supervisor has done everything from reclassification, to nomination for awards (with some one off payments), to fighting for performance based riases (1 easily percent at a time). She fights for me so she doesn't lose me, but it feels like I am still getting exploited. Especially after this so called promotion in title only.
The longer I sit with this, the more cynical, upset and frustrated I get. I went to her to ask for possibly more flexibility to work from home as a compromise, with a answer that my job is front facing so no, can't get it in writing. Been starting to care less and less about the job too... And putting more efforts in job searching. But I'm finding it hard to identify a title with the type of skillsets are a good fit, since I am a jack of all trades with mainly experience in the university working in all industries (I work at the research park so I deal with every industry you cna think of).
My thoughts are to schedule a meeting with a number in mind. One that is industry standard for project directors/managment, and show how I'm actually making less than I did when I first started due to the low raise percentages when you look at purchasing poweinflation.
Any advice on how to deal with this delicate situation?
TLDR - HR runs and approves everything, boss is amazing and has fought for a good number of raises, but the Raises have always been so low that I make less money now than when I first started (with inflation) back in 2015.

2023.04.25 04:14 sawnah is 13 dollars an hour reasonable for a scribe?

for context, I live in NY and 13 dollars is really low and Chick Fil A pays 20 starting. I worked as a CNA for two years and my starting salary was 18 an hour and there was a shift differential and overtime etc and increases as time went on.
Scribe america is only offering 13 an hour and I feel like they are cheating me high-key but I am not sure if that is usual.
