Hey everyone, I am brand new to the site, so I apologize if this has been covered millions of times. I have been with the company 3 years, started in Starbucks, then went to GSA and then went to Food Service Team Lead. I attempted to negotiate my pay and they flat out rejected the conversation, telling me what they offered was standard for beginning team leads. Well, just yesterday they promoted a GSA that I trained and who has been with the company 7 months, no degree, no experience (other than GSA) and gave her 3 dollars more an hour staring than I make. The new team leader will be taking my position in food and I am moving to GSTL. Note that I turned food service from a red in all areas to consistently green in areas, never had performance issues so they did not force me out of food service, they just asked and I said yes. However, I feel very pissed that they offered the new team leader that much more per hour. What about equal work for equal pay haha. Anyways, should I just quit? Has this happened to anyone else? What would you guys do? Thanks for any advice and I am glad to be here with you all!
