After much debating on my last thread here, I took people's advice on leaving my workplace. I ran into an old manager who use to work at my unit who climbed up the corporate ladder and found me another position within the company at a different unit, she all too well understood the problems of my unit.
Now, one of the biggest problems will not be around for at least the summer after years of abusive behavior and demonstrations of serious incompetence and ignorance. In his place temporarily is someone who has proven herself, she had a great working relationship with my chef so he vouches for her as do a number of other people I know who worked under her after she pushed them up the corporate ladder. She also impressed the H.E. double hockey sticks out of me with several things shes done in the short time that shes been here. She is also fully away of my desire to leave and wants to have a 1 on 1 talk with me.
Now, I'm at a bit of a crossroads here. On one hand, I'm guaranteed another position else where earning more money and doing less work but still within the same company but under a different "branch". I'll still be doing kitchen work but it might be a step back from being a supervisor until/unless I prove myself to the unit manager. On the other hand, I may have someone who can help me push my career forward if I play my cards right with her while working in a unit I'm already familiar with, I might also bring up my pay issue with her at our meeting. So theres my dilemma; I can either go somewhere else with more pay but I have to work my way back up again or go from where I am now with potential to rise up higher but I may have to burn my other bridge.
