The waiting game

May 6th, 2015 at 08:59 am

So several weeks ago I heard about a manager position coming open at one of our sister hospitals. I am required, as in internal candidate, to tell my boss I am applying, so I did, and she passed it on to her superiors. As a result, they are working on changing the reporting structure of my position, making me a manager here (of myself, but hey, it's still a title!) and giving me a pay raise (no idea how much).

The position I am planning on applying for still hasn't been posted so there has been no progress there. I have no idea what's taking them so long. It would be a minimum of a $12K raise, and probably closer to $20K, realistically.

Then today my boss gave her notice. Now they REALLY need to keep me! We have 2 other people who started in September, neither of whom are board certified (I am). I was supposed to hear about the changes to my current position "early this week" and here we are on Wednesday, but that's probably good because now that my boss is leaving I'll have more negotiating power.

So no matter what happens, it will mean a promotion and more money for me, but I just don't know exactly what or when that will be! Hopefully it will be more money than I ever could have hoped for and I can get this CC debt paid off even faster!

    Will you apply for your departing boss's position? Can you check with HR to learn the salary range for her position? Can HR tell you the salary range for the managers status promised you and the effective date? You need to know how that relates to the job you planned to apply for in a sister hospital. Has the posting date been established at that hospital?

    With all these changes, it's best to have as much information as possible so that your expectations and requests are in line with salary and benefits of each of those three options.
