To be taken advantage of feels nice right?
Engineer (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 10, 2019
From day one, I was given the expectation that the conversion process would begin at 6 months.
I was brought in as a field engineer, then quickly moved to much more involved roles and responsibilities...But no increase of pay, and only "talk" of permanent. They refuse to increase my pay and continue to tell me, "Oh just wait. You'll get permanent, and it will be fixed." In August of 2018, they tell me now I have to wait a full year. Now I continue to do these very inclusive duties at the same low rate. I've been loyal through and through, and I've even refused better offers out there due to being led on about promises of permanent positions. This tops the cake. Check this out --
They then proceed to hire someone under my nose in a similar role DIRECTLY PERMANENT. It's all about the (Good ol' Boys club) I've been told my skills are fantastic, and I have an excellent work ethic. What are they waiting for? This "valuable investment" (Me) is not happy, and I haven't been happy with this for the past 6 months. I'm not waiting any longer.
TIP for anyone considering this corporation - Please be aware that they will either forget about you, lie to you, or swindle you. They are extremely sneaky. Please make sure you secure yourself GOOD initial salary as you will be stuck with it for a good long while. Don't even mention going permanent. That way they won't have any expectations come your way that will fail.
I know EXACTLY what i'm worth, and what they are doing is just plain wrong. That is all.
Low pay which drives me to find something better out there
Low pay and false expectations of a perm position
