He asked me to re-take it because last time I took it was in December, and he thought it had been awhile.

Don't go to HR, don't do anything. Five months isn't a long time. It could take you that long or longer to find another job in the area and actually start. So just chill, and find other ways to treat yourself better until you leave. Don't have lunch with anyone at work, leave the area for that time. Phone friends who you really enjoy talking to and don't talk about work. Talk about the future and that you are leaving in 5 months.

I'm sorry you are going through this, but that is the best thing for you to do is run out the clock. Again, don't go to HR, don't have any meetings with anyone at work about anything to try to discuss or fix the situation.

Be glad you have an exit plan there. Many people who feel stuck in a bad situation don't think they will ever get out of it.

Default Co-Worker that's been at company shorter time has now gotten a raise

I've posted on here before, but now I'm just pretty much like Į\_(ツ)_/Į but still a little peeved.
I've been at my company since October and am doing 500% more work than I was told I'd be doing. Which is fine, but it is much more work than I anticipated. I am not saying I 100% deserve a raise since I've only been here for almost 10 months.

But there was a 'new hire' back in January who just graduated college in 2018. She didn't have any experience in her position now, so she is pretty junior. When hiring her, the hiring took a bit longer than expected so they threw an extra 10k on her salary because they 'felt bad'.

Just found out from the Director of HR that she will be receiving a raise for all the help that she has brought the company. Which is fine, but I know she isn't doing more work than I am.

Now I feel like I am putting in all of this extra work and time (9+ hour days/working when I get home) for nothing.

Am I wrong to feel a little jilted by this? Makes me now only want to do the bare minimum and not go the extra mile, since it's apparent that I am not valued here.

I am moving back to the west coast in the fall, so I'd just like to ride this job out so I am here for a year.

i'd be pissed too. not sure of your industry but why are salaries posted to the public.
could it be her position is more visible so it seems like she is more valuable than the workers behind the curtain.
also, sometimes signing one t.p.s. report is more valuable than constructing 1,000 widgets for the week.

I am a recruiter and she is a jr tech writer. It's hard to tell who has more visibility, since I a the ones that are getting new candidates/employees for the company.

How do you know how much money she got when hired on, and that she's getting a raise? What kind of company do you work for where they actively discuss the salaries (new hire, bonuses, raises) to you? Very, very odd.

I was there when my boss called her with the offer. And I was in a meeting with my boss and the director of HR when she announced the raise

I was just thinking this. Every company Iíve ever worked what other people make is kept very tightlipped. How would OP know that they added $10,000 to her salary when they hired her or any of these details?? I donít have a clue what my coworkers make. This would be very odd for coworkers to know such detail abut their coworkers pay.

It is actually the norm in the public sector as salaries are often public. Some states are also moving in that direction for the private sector. Particularly if you are a company that has gotten alleged of discrimination with respect to pay, there can be some benefits to being more transparent.

Because my company doesn't care. I thought it was a little odd when I found out her salary originally. But I found it VERY weird when the DIRECTOR of HR was so non-nonchalant about telling me about my co-worker getting a raise today. It just speaks volumes of this company.
