I switched jobs in Dec from a CNC machine shop where i was at for about 7 years to a very large dealership/auto mall i work for land-rover at the auto complex. I was working full time at the last shop and everything was ok with the pay, just was a dead end job. So went to school and graduated and now working as a tire tech part time, cut my income in half if not more. So basically i am asking is it ok to shoot my boss an email and ask how can i move up with in the company or if i can do something to move up faster? or is there a better way?
