Financial things I really dislike about my job

November 2nd, 2006 at 07:55 am

Yesterday was payday and it got me to thinking about paying bills and finances in general and I realized that there are a few things I really dislike about my job financially.

NO its not the pay itself. I know that I am under the national average in my field by about 10,000 a year. (The uni8on keeps telling me, if nothing else.) I am actually pretty satisfied with my income. Its Okay, not great and certain not what many people on this site make but OK.

No it is the little things I dislike. I am forced to pay 24.00 a month for parking at work.

I also dislike being paid once a month for 9 months. This makes summer budgeting extremely difficult. Even though I work really hard to put away money for the summer. I would really like a 12 month pay plan. The company has so far refued to do this for us. Although there is a group of us who are still working on it. Yes I know this is not in my best interest. It is giving the company free use of my money but it would lower my financial stress.

The other thing I hate is that my income is public. It is on the web for heaven's sake with my name attached to it. Because I am a public employee the infomration is public. They used to put it out in what was called "red books." You had to at least go to a library and look the information up. Now you can simply use ay web browser and go to the company's website. Its annoying.

However I do realize that I am one of the lucky ones. I do love my job. IT has some flexibility in hours and it allows me to do what I love doing. Overall I am pretty fortunate.

    I can SO relate to you on the 9 month budgeting. I never do a good job with it myself. I am fortunate that the college that I work for uses 12 month budgeting, but this past year I got put on the 9-month plan because I was part-time at my school and part-time at another school for the 2005-06 academic year. Even though I budgeted ahead and saved money, I ended up with a lot of credit card/family loan debt because of unanticipated expenses. I'll finally finish paying the summer off next month. I hope your union can someday soon arrange for the 12-month plan--for me, it's been well worth it.
