That seems to be the case, although I'll probably be somewhat less active in the coming weeks, at work on the new job.

Well technically its a transfer from one group in the company I was working for to another division, but its in a new location. It moves me out of doing pure design into engineering, with a little bit of design also.

It moves out of automotive design/ design engineering and into working on elements for amusement park rides or shows. It should be a lot more fun, even though it is more challenging, and I still need to talk with HR about why the groups are trying to call it a lateral move with no pay increase at the moment. That part I'm less amused with at the moment.

I'm working on that part, on one hand if there is a lot more over time it wouldn't hurt too much, but I would like to see an increase in pay for an increase in expected work (both in terms of skill/ knowledge required), as well as additional travel required as the new office is a good 15 miles or more further away.

There wasn't much opportunity for overtime in the old location though.

wow! Sounds exciting. I hope when I'm finished with my engineering degree I can find a sweet job like that.

With more work I agree you should get a bump in pay. The extra distance kinda sucks, but at least it isn't much more.
