Should I ask for a raise -UPDATE

Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions on my previous post. I have made a decision and thought I would share.

Even though I have been with the company for 3 years, this is the first year I have been doing the job I was hired for. If we make all of our production and shipping goals we will get a bonus in November. So, I have decided to wait to see if we get the bonus - that will give me a little more leverage.

Our review process…

Talk with the person who writes in their own salary, and I'm sure you'll be talking to the right person about a raise.

The ATS could be stopping you!!

Feeling frustrated because you applied to a TON of jobs and you still aren’t hearing back???

The problem could be that your resume is missing some important information!

So, let’s look at some tips on how to use keywords to update…

Great pointers! Thanks Lenin!

Mixed emotions

I was recently given a promotion at work and transferred to a new location...come to find out the new location they sent me too has been sold and is becoming a different store! I’m upset that they removed me from where I was at promised me a raise and then stuck it to me! The new owners seem nice kept my same pay but no raise!

I've been at my job for 16 years and dont get the recognition or praise that I should. I have been overlooked and feel very disrespected. It's time for me to move on I think. I have been managing for the past 13 years and have put apps in and no return on anything. What's wrong with me? Or is it that none wants to deal with training me on something different

When you are in your evaluations always follow up with these questions:

What is the next step that I can move up to?

Any opinions???

Good Morning one and all. I was laid off due to down sizing back on Aug 30. I've been on several interviews but so far no dice. Through staying in touch with several employees at the old job I have heard that the company is extending over time and is rumored to be considering hiring beginning in January. I am considering applying if that is true but might ask that my COBRA be reimbursed since the company did lay me off and might also ask for a…
