    So be indispensable.

    What does that have anything to do with "the private sector"?

    PS: you lost your job the minute the boss flipped out about you saying "no." It ain't right but it is what it is. I'd be looking for something else if I were you, I wouldn't want to work for a company like that.

    Go easy. He's just regurgitating what he was taught.

    Not knowing all the details, I'd take the offer, do a kick *** job to show them you're value and then ask for more money when it's obvious you're worth it.

    I've had a number of "promotions" where I didn't get a raise but took on more responsibility. Then, later on down the road, the money followed. I don't know what business you are in or if you can trust the people you work with but for me this has been a successful strategy.

    I'd take the job, sounds like you will have time during the day to job hunt. You are marketable, this job will be a resume builder, being fired will not. Organizations have cultures, some are healthier and more productive than others. Sorry you got the short straw.

    This!

    I guess I am different from most that replied but I am always looking to be more valuable to the company, learn more things that will help me in the future, and prove that I can handle anything that they throw my way.

    The money has always followed once I proved I could handle the job.

    You mean the truth that when two people enter into a business arrangement, oe of them can turn out to be a jackwad?

    How is that the "private sector's" fault?

    Also, come to think of it, this is a pretty good description of what happens to senior Lance Corporals. Except they don't get fired and can't quit. Yeah, working for the government is way better. :upeyes:

    Not the kind of person I'd like working for. Do what's required to keep your job but start looking and cut out ASAP.
