I am a very hard worker.
And in doing so I got rewarded with a great pay increase! I work as a certified heating and air conditioning specialist at my local heat and a/c company.
I have been here for about 8 years now and I have worked very hard at my job. I am always on time, have hardly ever called in sick unless I really was sick, and I also would work overtime if they needed extra help. Well this all finally paid off last week when the manager came and told me that they were increasing my pay and giving me a raise! They also wanted me to become assistant chief heating and air conditioning specialist. That was a real honor and also means that I will spend more time at the office helping new hired heat and a/c specialists than being out in the field working on broken down central heating and air conditioning systems. It has been a long time coming and I am so glad that they finally realized all of my hard work over the last 8 years and gave me the raise I wanted. I was honestly getting ready to start looking for another job at another heating and air conditioning company to get better pay. But they hit this just in time before I began looking. Which I guess was a good thing because having to start over at a new heating and air conditioning company would have been quite a task to learn the new company rules and ways of doing business.
