Wow, thanks everyone for the kind words and the advice!
Please don't get me wrong, I am SO grateful to even have a job in our days. Although I do work for a construction business, it's a small/medium sized family owned business. The girls (admins) do not get the pay they deserve, everyone knows that. However, we JUST had a company meeting where they boasting and gloating on how well we're doing. They definitly HAVE the money.
I stay here for several reasons. I know they appreciate the work I do and unless I quit, I'm not going anywhere, and stability is very important to me. The department I work for is the best, I wouldn't still be here if I worked for any other department. My estimators thank me every day for my help and they are usually in earlier than me and later than me. I also love the rest of the staff except for a couple of really annoying people, lol. It's a great place to work and I do look forward to coming to work every day, and that is especially important to me.
We had a rough year two years ago and only a few people got bonuses (I was told I was the only admin who did receive one and so I am greatful for that - considering the Owner's wife likes to say we make up for pay in bonuses!) but last year, no bonus. :(
Thanks again for letting me vent!
