    Possible promotion!

    In our warehouse we have 3 teams. There is VSE, AVPW and OEM... they are all acronyms for something, but I don't know what. Anyone who works in the Department of Defense knows they are all about acronyms Each team does it's own thing for the whole of the operation. Anyway I am on the OEM team, and we by far are the largest team in the warehouse. We have one supervisor (MTM3 - Material Team Member 3) and then the other 5 of us are all MTM1's. We have one shipper, our packer, the dock guy, the administrative assistant and me; the receiver.

    Well we just had our performance reviews and I was highly recommended by the warehouse manager to the Deputy VP of logistics to be promoted to MTM2 with a pay raise... only after a year with the company! I will find out tomorrow if I get it or not... it would make me a team lead if I get it. Hopefully I do

    Wish me luck!

    More power to you! Sounds like you deserve it! You said to wish you luck, but to me it sounds like you have created your luck! Good job and congratulations!!!

    Hope you get the promotion so I will give you an albeit early... Congratulations. It's nice to work somewhere that people recognize when you are working hard.

    My manager says I am loyal, have good work ethic, I train well and that he values my opinion... he would trust me to do any job on our team. I did bust my butt this year

    So maybe you are right... it wasn't luck.

    Congrats!

    Does a VP get access to the acronym manual?

    I know there is one, but it's the size of a small phone book

    I love to hear that a good work ethic and skills paid off.
    I doubt your promotion was based on anything less, you worked for it, you earned it, it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

    In my house getting the promotion is easier than the part in bold. Again congratulations!
