Yeah.  I am the Assistant Manager now.  Although I would prefer to be assistant TO the regional manager, ala Dwight Schrute.  It’s been an odd transition – I’ve been working a weird schedule and it took a week to get my email moved over to my new desk, so I was still in the YS office.

It’s kind of a promotion and kind of not.  To the eyes of the rest of the people I work with, it is, because I’m now one of their supervisors, whereas before I was off in the land of YS.  But as far as the salary scale goes, it’s still the same grade as what I was doing before, so that hurt me when I was trying to negotiate for more money.

And OH that was a lousy negotiation.  Mostly because I wasn’t taken seriously.  And it made me so frustrated and annoyed that it sort of sullied this whole transition and put a damper on any sort of big excited announcement that I might have wanted to make.  So that’s why you’re hearing about this two weeks after I officially made the move.   I’ve cooled off and accepted it by now.

So I don’t know if I’m going to love or hate this new position.  I know it’s a great opportunity to learn from someone I really respect, and I’m pretty sure it’s going to look nice on my resume.  I haven’t had to get too ugly with anybody, either, so that’s good.  But it’s a long day ahead of me.
