I'm glad you're taking your time and thinking this over logically. Happy for whatever your final decision is.

Well, I called and told them I had to turn it down because the finances weren't going to work out with the benefits package. They asked me what I would need, so I went ahead and made a counter-offer, even though I fully expect nothing to come from it. They were going to talk about it and see if anything might change, but I told them I understand that everybody is in a financial pinch right now and often it is what it is, and thanks for the opportunity, but just from a financial standpoint it didn't seem like it was the right fit right now.
There is always the slight possibility they will come back and go "Okay!!" but I doubt it.

I am really sad.

Sooo they gave me a counter offer to my counter offer.
Now I'm not sure what to do. That brings it back to a lateral move pay wise.

ideally I would actually like to go to the station and say "okay, so, give me a raise or bye-bye!" and they'd give me a raise... it would be very easy to stay if I got a raise. The benefits at work are still way better so I would love to keep those. The counter offer isn't enough to make me go CHA-CHING CHA-CHING, it just makes things more even.
problem: the business manager is gone until next Thursday... >=/

I could go to the GM again and chat with him I guess. If anything he might at least be willing to give me some more advice since the advice he gave me Tuesday was good...


eta: came back to work early to ask my co-worker who is also my good friend his advice. He said to go to the GM and ask for a raise and see if that gets me anywhere.

hope you get everything worked out. It's a stinky situation.

If you got offered this position, that means others will want you to work for them as well.
