Traveled all over the US with this company, in the middle of a transfer the pay scale changed. I was unaware until newer people were telling me they made more than me with less experience. I had brought it up multiple times and they had seen that the best opportunity for a raise would be at the semi-annual evaluation. Which nobody at this shop had know or seen what I had previously done for the company, making it completely oblivious to even try and entertain them. People you work with become family, they say they care about your family, but they don't, honestly. They just want money. And advancement in the workplace, climbing the structural ladder, kick it goodbye. Their values and career advancement make it near impossible to move up when they continue to hire people as foremen and higher management.
Travel and see the US if you'd like.
