    So they're gonna promote me which means no freaking overtime.
    Last I count if I were to get promoted, I would be getting around $500 lesser every month.


    Which would u guys choose?

    Depends on the position of being promoted and the perks or no perks that come with it. All depends.

    I'd probably say Career, but it really depends on which career you choose. For the most part, money is important because you'll have to depend on the quantity of funds to meet your standard of living; however, I'm saying career is more important because enhancing your field would allow you to climb up the ladder, which could also mean better earnings.
    The problem is that the career is only as good as its demand, so something like a historian is not going to get you far in life (doesn't necessarily mean it's "useless") vs. an accountant with a CPA could get you up to a Chief Financial Officer in a public company.

    Always money.

    But if you're able to, you should find a respectable career that pays fairly well. That'd be more ideal than a shitty/stressful high paying job or a respectable career that's all title but pays you like a part time job.

    I've been there. Believe me, look for middle ground.

    At the very least, being promoted does make your resume look nice after all.

    this is a highly specific scenario since usually advancing ur career will typically result an increase in pay
    still need more info whether or not that promotion is valuable to future endeavors cuz stacking flow is always a go

    If you are short on money then the answer is obvious. Buuttt if you can still manage for a long while, then career.

    I'd choose career.

    This is not a promotion imo. You should not be making less, especially that much less...

    Career advancement>Money Imo but that's because I can settle for less money made since I don't put too much value on it if I have what I need.

    There's several things to consider.

    Will there be opportunities to move up, from this position, to a position that pays more than what you currently make?

    How long will you stay in that position, realistically, before you'll be able to move onto something better? And will you be able to handle that?

    Will the new position be salary? Or is there a reason for no ot? If it's salary, the ot won't necessarily stop. You'll just not get paid for it.

    No offense but that's the type of BS management feeds to workers to keep them from negotiating higher salaries.

    It's not unusual. A lot of times, hourly wages can pay more because of overtime.

    Very true, some workers who overtime a lot I think get close to an assistant manager's pay without the headache.

    Depends on how many overtime hours you need, to make additional 500. Do you need money or time more?. Also denends if you have a choice between 1700 and 2200 a month, or 6000 and 6500. And there are other factors, It seriously depends on your situation, and what you need.

    from what i've seen, if you're not being paid hourly, you're working way longer than a full time hourly worker

    cant you negotiate? tell em that you want a raise since youd be losing 500 a month from no overtime. if they say no then just stay in the job you have and look for a new one. there is no excuse for you losing money on a "promotion," that sounds incredibly cheap and shady on their part and says a lot about what they think about their employees, assuming they say no to the pay raise

    It depends on your personal preferences and personal sense of fulfillment.

    Depends if you're able to utilize the money to move to a better place with better careers or invest in your life/business. Then it can come first but otherwise, other way round
