    Southern, I’m taking a vacation, not visiting someone in prison.

    What are you planning on doing while out there?

    So in that meeting last week about my role, the person who wanted to reallocate me was convinced not to do that. Today I got a schedule meeting for several initiatives I have nothing to do with in a... dare I say... clerical capacity. Like, go show up to take notes and provide staff support like an admin assistant.

    ...Which, no. I'm a project manager. I have admin assistants. And the topics are the most bonkers things, things I have no experience with and no affiliation with whatsoever.

    It's almost deliberately random. So, yeah. That's what pushed me to the edge to file this app.

    Just had my "review" like fuckin yikes, if I wasn't already looking for something else this would motivate the shit out of me.
    I still have no tangible goals to work on, they are the same as they were this time last year but my job responsibilities changed like 2 months after that so their no longer valid "We'll work on that" my boss says.

    The work I do is important, and I'm the only one who knows how to do it, and when I'm not here the rest of the department struggles to get it done. I am also still the only hourly employee in the department with the lowest pay. But hey I got a $0.75 cent raise out of it.....I was "successful" (the middle ground) on all levels and was told I'm "Doing really good work" and given no feedback on what, if anything, I can improve on.

    Fuck right off with that.

    I should mention the stuff in the second paragraph isn't me bragging, its actual words said to me about the work I do. Its actually really easy if anyone would take the time to understand the training materials I made!

    Fucking yikes is right holy crap. The fact that they can, in the same sentence, say you do a valuable job, but can't bring you up to salary with anyone else and can't figure out what to do with you speaks volumes. Glad to hear you're actively looking for other stuff at least.

    Reminder that they just hired a new personal assistant for my boss who has a higher pay scale then me and is starting at a higher pay then me.

    Not that I want to rag on the position, but the job description was like "Have a high school diploma and be good with Word and Outlook" and mine requires a 4 year degree and at least 2 years of experience in fraud and analytic work. Which I had.

    I need to get out of this trash state.

    Yup, reminds me of the company I worked for a few years ago that balked at paying me more than $25/hr for accounting work then hired a fresh-out-of-college person as a secretary for $75k who turned out to not even be able to operate a printer.

    Good luck with job hunting! I hope you find something awesome!

    Yeah, we've got that. The zoo, the science museum, and several smaller museums are all up in the same corner of town. It's officially called "the Adventure District."

    Of course, this being Oklahoma, it also has a giant racetrack and casino.

    It'll be a hefty fifty page document of pure academic jargon and commentary.

    I've got eight pages completed and this is my current attitude (which will continue for the next 45 days):

    Eh. Eeeeeh. SF is the center for theater/museum/touristy restaurants and stuff, sure. But I'd say Northern California has Southern California beat pretty soundly for non-beach oriented outdoor stuff, and things like wine tourism.
