So I listened. I put in an application for a trial court clerk position and I had an interview scheduled for next wednesday. Had. This morning the supervisor came in and told me I got a raise. So.. it made this job pay better than the court clerk position. But it’s not just the pay either. There are several reasons to keep my same job. My company has a match that goes into my Roth IRA. I don’t have to be vested. Once it’s in my account, it’s mine. The insurance in the other job would come out of my wages. I get an insurance benefit that pays my insurance plus gives me an extra $300 a month in income. The court positions never get overtime. I get an hour overtime every week and when the supervisor goes back to working saturday mornings I can get at least 4 hours overtime every week if I want.
