set back on the promotion

Saturday, April 20, 2013

three working days before i was to start my new job title i was told they had to withdraw the promotion. they had to offer it to three other people in that agency before they could offer it to me. the reason this happened is because i took the promotion last november to the agency i am in currently working. the central personnel office is behind on paperwork and five months later i am still listed with my previous agency. my heart was broken and i cried for two days felt very blue for four days. on the other hand my supervisor and the next one up are thrilled that i am not out of a job and that i am staying. the bureau chief (aka head of the agency) really went to bat for me to get this situation straightened out and was very supportive. it is nice to be in a place where the people are supportive and will step up for you.

    This is good. Last time I heard you were looking for a new job. Did you get it then?

Sound like they care.

    I am sorry about the promotion delay but delighted that you have a boss who stood up for you and win/lose/or draw you discovered something lovely about her/him. Hope you get it when all is said and done.

    I think that this is grossly unfair. I don't see how they can get away with this. They promised you the job and you should have it.
