so for the past almost 4 years I've been working in the same place. started as a temp, learned to run a machine here and worked my way up to maintenance and then quality control all within 6 months of working here. learned to drive the forklift in that time too. So there for a month when the quality guy quit (hence me taking over at quality control) kinda suddenly I was running the shift completely by myself. Driving forklift, doing maintenance on the machines during my shift, doing all the quality control and supervising the shift. Well they did hire a guy about a month after to do maintenance and to help supervise and we have been jointly running the shift ever since except for when one of use is gone then the other person has complete control of the shift. other than that it had been a joint thing.. we would make all decisions together and what not. We both have our specific duties.. I do all the quality stuff and he does maintenance. Well we both have been doing lots of extra stuff that they don't do on the other shift (basically covering their asses) so we both have been basically busting our asses for the past 3 years. Well anyways I found out last friday that he had gotten a promotion to "supervisor" ....neither of us had that title before. Which did piss me off but I just kinda ignored it and figured I would just go with the flow a little. Well that is until my boss decided to have a meeting with everybody yesterday and announced that he was now supervisor and all that. went on to say that the company wanted to show their appreciation for all the hard work he has been doing and all that. and even said that some of the stuff that I used to do under the quality department he would now be doing. it was really upsetting and felt like I was once again just very much underappreciated for what I do. that tends to be a trend in my life. Well I have basically fallen completely apart since. Yes he did deserve it and thats not what I'm upset about its the fact that I'm not appreciated here. that all my extra work just didn't matter. Even he told me he feels horrible about it.. said that we both have always worked great together and that we both made sure stuff got done. But like I told him.. it doesn't matter does it? I bust my ass for nothing. So as I told him... I am now done doing all the extra stuff and I will be getting an exact list of what my exact job duties are and only will be sticking to that. And I will also be actively searching for a new job.
