Got a couple of problems at work at the moment and Im not quite sure where to step. Basically, I run the state branch office in a service and spare parts organization. Being experienced in spares Ive been in charge of the spare parts division all along, but the other guy is the formal state manager of the whole thing. Anyway, hes resigned and given 30 days notice. The organization headquaters is sniffing around me and has asked me to run the show. The word "manager" hasnt been mentioned, because they know I wouldnt accept the title, and all the unpaid hours that accompany it.
Being as I just KNOW that this is going to increase my work load (even though they assure me it wont) should I insist on an immediate pay rise? before the guy leaves?
Im a little confused at the moment. I dont want to lose my job, which Im fond of.This could easily happen if they decide to centralize everything (including parts) at the headquarters location.
Do I go for the whole lot? Try to do my best? Run home crying to my mama?
