I’m Sick of Paying for Parking at Work!

3

Dear Experts,

I’ve been working at a company for 2 years and have paid to park every single day. I got my first promotion a few weeks ago that includes a salary raise and a new office. However, I didn’t get a parking spot in the company parking lot. Others in my position own this sort of privilege.

I’m not sure if they’ve forgotten to give me a spot or if they don’t have enough money in their budget to afford it. Is it unprofessional or rude to ask what the deal is?

Q#376 Are you the only one? If so, you’re doing it wrong. If not, you should have negotiated better. (@beneubanks)

Q#376 No askee no getee. Nicely inquire if you will now be able to park in the company lot as part of the promotion. (@DebraWheatman)

Q#376 Ask about policy re parking spaces, when you will get one. Take action, let go of results & resentment. (@juliaerickson)

Q#376 It never hurts to ask. Just be courteous and don’t make it about status within the company. (@gradversity)
