Decisions, decisions

June 22nd, 2010 at 04:03 pm

I mentioned in my previous post that I was considering a job change, being unhappy with the management position. I need to clarify that I have been with said company for 2 years. I was promoted to a supervisory position in the fall of 2009. I am finding management difficult and stressful. The stress of my job in addition to my current medical issues have me exhausted all the time. I was considering the job change as away to help reduce stress, along with eating healthier, getting excersie, etc.

I interviewed at a different company today. It would be close to the same pay, taking into account the bonus structure. But I would not have to manage any employees and the place is a more low key than the more fast paced, aggressive environment I am in now. There are obvious pros and cons. It will require a lot of thought.

Money wise, things are going well. I have a new budget in place that we will be using starting in July. July is a 3paycheck month for the hubby, so that will help pad the new plan. The goal is to automate as many bills as possible to avoid late fees, etc.

I am off to heat up left overs. Hope everyone is having a great week so far.

    Just a thought. I left the stressful month end, quarter end, year end, supervisory stuff 18 months ago and I also have a illness. Life is so much better without the stress making me sick. I can't get over how much better I feel. You owe it to yourself to honour yourself.

    Some people just aren't cut out for management. I don't say that to criticize, because I am one of them myself. You can be very smart, and very good at your job, but just dislike having to supervise others. Too bad it's the usual route to higher pay.

    Good luck on your new opportunity!

    You really should not stay in a position that leads to compromising your health, and higher pay or better insurance is not enough of a reason to do so! I hope that you are able to find a good situation that will help you enjoy work again and diminish the stressors. Good luck!
