What’s your best clueless recruiter story? First post military job, I had a company really like me and tell me they would offer me in a couple weeks. Three years later they call me up to offer me the role, but in WV instead of Florida, and were shocked I wasn’t willing to leave consulting and that my requested comp had doubled. “But this is a great opportunity!” “If it’s so great why does it pay 35% less than I make now?”

Small fed shop reached out to me years ago to be a PM for a ~50 person technical program and refused to disclose comp ahead of time, just saying it was competitive. I went through the lengthy interview process and got the hard offer at the end of...$85k.

The wording in my decline was polite, but my tone was very much not polite.

Given the scope of that program and the role, about $175k at the time.

My company has given me a promotion without a raise. Any suggestions on how to deal with this?

Little background:

Asked for promotion in late 2020 - was required to skill up, after skilling up, asked again about when I'll be promoted and was denied because there is no "vacancy" for it.
Got my annual hike in Oct 2021 without the promotion. I asked HR last week again and got a random announcement email saying my promotion is w.e.f Oct 2021. ( and no raise for the newly promoted role).
