Congrats!

I ran a similar path back in the 70's and 80's.

Once I hit Service manager 1982/83 it became obvious I had a no win job.

The dealership owner wasn't happy because he wanted more money.

The mechanics weren't happy because every work order wasn't a high profit task.

The Customers..... well they aren't ever happy are they?

The manufacturer complained about warranty claims.

The parts guy? He didn't give a rip.

The Wife? "You're never home"

The choices were......
Alcohol
Wife beating
Or
Quit

I chose to quit and entered a less stressful occupation.

Married 43 years, I'm sober and quite relaxed........

Worst Job in the world has to be "VW Service Writer"
I'm sure there are actually worse jobs, but I can't think of any.
I watched a Indian guy rip a VW Service Writer a new asshole around 1999 or 2000, I don't remember for sure.
The place was a good VW Dealer as far as repairs and warranty work was concerned,
The guy had no right to rip anyone like that.
Turnover for VW Service Writers was/is pretty high.

Congrats on the promotion. Best of luck.

I'm retired now. My attitude towards my job was that it helped me get the things I wanted out of life, but that it did not define who I was as a person. I felt that my employer and I had a deal: I did what they asked me to do, they sent me a check, we were good. After 38 years, although I screwed up a couple of times (and they forgave me), I felt I gave them value for money.

I hope you continue to have a fruitful and productive relationship with your employer.
