A couple of coworkers quit in the past few weeks. I've already been taking more shifts than I can manage. Just got a message from the manager asking if the rest of the team can "step up more" to get through this low capacity challenge. Is it reasonable to ask for more monetary incentives for taking on more? Don't want to act like I'm taking advantage of the company but this is too much.

Waitressing for a busy establishment can be difficult, especially if you picked up extra hours and extra tables. They should give you a little something, a gift card, a bonus to let you know they appreciate you. You are also making more tip money you can put away for something special.

Hi Amber, the answer is "it depends. If you are a salaried employee, there is no point talking about pay raise for doing more work. If you are an hourly employee then you are limited by your job description and working hours. Then, "yes" you should be asking for supplemental wage or pay increase because if you don't say anything, the new tasks that you would be doing at "no charge" would be expected as part of your job in the future. And if you don't do it in the future, you could be terminated for poor job performance.

you should put together a list of all the extra things u are doing and show the ones in charge also explain what the difference would be in pay if they were to replace to one who left. More work means more money. Don’t be afraid to speak up for yourself. Emily

I am not sure how much extra time or effort you need to deal with more shifts or tasks, but please let your boss know you are willing to help the company get through the difficult time and will be appreciated if you could get more recognitions from the company either by getting more pay or getting promotion opportunities.

Say you'll do it for a limited time, then ask for more $, and also ask, "what are you doing to make sure we get more employees in here?"

This don't sound right and it is definitely not fair to you to take on extra shifts without getting paid for your work! there is no over time because if you are not getting paid for extra shift work, surely you want get paid for overtime work! You might want to seek another job, where you are appreciated!

The corporate world is taking advantage of their employees right now because they know we need a job, but do not let anyone abuse or misuse you.
