Finally some job news!

June 5th, 2015 at 08:58 am

Well they officially asked me yesterday to be the interim manager for all 3 hospitals in my hospital system! I love the one I am at, and would have to move to the biggest of the 3 hospitals, which is a slightly farther commute. I figured out an alternate route which, according to Mapquest, is only about 2 minutes longer and avoids the toll, so hopefully that won't be too bad! It also comes with a 5% raise, that will turn into a lot more if I decide to take the position permanently.

They said they know I want to move up in my career, and they can't afford to lose me, so if I want to be the manager of all 3 hospitals, it's mine, and if I don't like, I can come back to my hospital and be the manager just over here.

I guess they really really like me! Smile

    Congratulation on being offered the interim manager's position. What was the salary range for the previous manager? What is the salary range for that position at other hospitals or on LinkedIn? With a longer commute, possible toll and a lot more responsibility, I'd be disappointed with a 5% raise. Are there other benefits that would make up the difference like more holidays, travel/millage allowance or signing bonus?

    I do not know what my previous boss made, but she had about 35 more years experience than me so I wouldn't expect to make nearly as much as she did. I wasn't clear - I actually pay a toll now and wouldn't be in this new position. It's only 3 miles further, so not a substantial difference. The 5% is only the interim pay raise, and then if/when I accept the position permanently, that is when I would negotiate for a higher salary.

    The manager position I have been waiting to apply for at a sister hospital was listed with a range of $80-110K, and I currently make $68K (that position still isn't even posted yet). I am going to ask for at least $85-90K when the time comes.

    There are no other additional benefits, as it is the same company with the same benefits, and none of those things are negotiable (pretty standard in health care).

    It is a good career move with a lot of different experience than I am getting now, so it'll put me in a great position for the future!
