Any thoughts on playing hardball for early promotion? Senior 2 but have gotten 5s three years straight

My group promoted a bit to heavy last year/a few bad early promotes so I have heard from HR there is additional scrutiny this year but I didn't bust my ass/come work here to wait in line

Why not. What's the worst that happens? They say no? Even if that's the case, you will be a shoe in for next year

If you're really going to play hardball you'd threaten to quit, and if you do that it's better if you have an offer somewhere else for the roll you want. Otherwise you're just blowing steam.

I started using Great Balls in Pokemon Go today. They work better sometimes but not always. Hard balls are kind of like that too.

Yes. I did it in PI

Not sure what you mean by hardball but if you stay professional there is no downside. Promoting after S2 for top performers is not unheard of. Worst case you set the table for next year.

Getting promoted for October? I think they already made those decisions. So it may be a bit harder unless you have an offer you are willing to take. If you're a rising senior 2 I don't see why not though.

Yes you should

I received an email today from recruiter asking for a phone interview which I’m so happy to hear from but I applied about a month ago.

I immediately responded back to the recruiter and agreed to the phone interview for tomorrow 5/4…. Do I mention any of the above to them? Do I tell them I just accepted a new role and different position? Please advise

I recently got a promotion in my company to work as a Junior CSR in Commercial Lines but I also got a job offer elsewhere to work in the entertainment insurance industry as an Associate. I got the RIBO license in January. The job offer pays more than my promotion but once I told my manager I had this offer she said they are willing to match that offer, however I wouldn’t see an increase in salary for a while. I don’t know what to do because both jobs sound really interesting. Any advice?
