I like my current job in property management but I only get paid $16 an hour and we do way more than usual property management companies since we’re a small company. I just recovered from pneumonia after being off for a month but my job was really understanding of it and I would like to keep it around since I have underlined health conditions. I love (who really loves their job) my job and the people I work with. I know they need help but I have been working for them exactly a year. What is the best way to ask for a raise? #workfromhome #raise #firstjob

What about asking to be a resident on one of the properties with compensation of expenses? Its the craft of a good negotiator......

Start with looking at what the Property Managers in your area make annually and with however many years of experience you have so that you at least have an idea on what you should be compensated.

You never want to go in asking for a raise blindly on what others in the same geographic and profession are making. This knowledge will help you negotiate way better had you not know the average compensation and it gives the confidence one needs to negotiate a better salary. Look on Glassdoor.com to search the pay. Good luck!!

My friend works in a customer service role and wants to ask for a raise. She has been working her tail off and is often getting called out for her positive demeanor and willingness to go above and beyond for her customers. She has been with this company for a little over 2 years.

I gave her some advice on how to approach the situation, but I wanted to see what you all thought?

What advice would you give someone who wants to ask for a raise?

Over the past two years, in the midst of record unemployment and a global pandemic, I was able to secure two promotions.

I don't say that to gloat, but I do think there were a few key things I did over the last few years that demonstrated my value, and prepared me for each of my promotions. I've listed them below:

  1. Create a Brag Book
  2. Come to your Year End Conversation Prepared
  3. Bring Enthusiasm and Optimism

For more details on how I did these things check out this video from my TikTok page

Hello, so I have been at my current job for almost two years. It's in a grocery store, and I have learned 4 departments. I want to ask my boss for a raise but I want to ask it in the right way. How would I go about doing it? #raise #firstjob

Hey Ashleigh!! I have gone through this in a few jobs and gotten raises so I will share my knowledge! The first thing to do is request a one on one with your manager. The second is to gather your info. How have you helped the store grow? What did you start off doing and how has that changed over the last two years? Make sure to bring this back to the company and what you have provided. You can request a raise or let them know that you have an interest in leading a department (which would most likely guarantee a raise). You never know to you ask, so make sure to prove to them why they need you and why you have earned that raise!! Also just know that if a company TRULY values you and your contributions they should 100% provide a raise. Good luck : )

Quick question @Ashleigh Magallanez , does you company conduct quarterly or yearly performance reviews? This is typically a good time to bring up raises as your strengths and areas for opportunity are commonly the main topics of discussion.

I'm not sure what you job entails but make a list of your daily tasks/responsibilities and try to pull hard data (metrics) to show how you're over-achieving in each area. Increased daily transactions by 10% and exceeded sales goals by 25% are good examples of how you can show your performance is raise worthy.

Don't leave out any areas where you volunteered to take on added responsibilities or examples of when you went above and beyond expectations. These are great ways to show your value and how your contributions have helped achieve team/company goals.

Schedule a one on one with your manager soon and keep us updated on your progress with this important goal. Good Luck!

I just read that Starbucks is giving every barista in the US a raise. It's great to see companies giving raises, especially during the holiday season!

i have been working at my recent job for over 15 + years and i honestly thought i would always be there. but it recently, about 3 years ago, got once again bought and well corporate world moved in. now i was recently demoted and my hourly cut by more than $6.00. not because of my work ethics which have not changed, nor have i never gotten written up and always work beyond the bosses expectation , i was demoted just because i do not have the college degree however i have more than 15 + years in this company and over 25+ years in total in accounting field. Now i am finding myself having to truly look for work elsewhere and i am so scared of the unknown. my recent employer continues to give me fault hope saying they are trying their hardest to try to meet me half between what i used to make and what i am making now and that everything is a process. but its been 2 months, and how quickly they were to changed my status and $$$ but how uneasy they find to change it back. i would love some feedback. thank you all.

Hi all, Work for manufacturing industry. Times are tough and company was barely a float for 7 years. Now a new company has bought us out and I am transitioning at my same pay. Should I ask for more money? They have reviews every jan/Feb. Is it better to wait and show my self worth til than?

I've work for this company going on 2 years. I love working in this industry. I put my sweat and tears making sure the family and friends are fine, every and anything the company or family needs I do. I just got a raise a month ago, I didn't know it because my check was still the same. I'm a single parent of three but I am worth to them $.25. What can I do with that? I'm doing what GOD wanted me to do but really. But when a new individual comes alone, she gets baby, she don't do what I do no matter how I teach her, she does what she want to do. I LOVE THIS FIELD. I might need to go elsewhere, so I know I would be appreciated. Thank you guys for reading. Im going through but by the GRACE OF GOD I can make it. Be bless.

A few months ago I posted that I was doing the job of three people and was thinking of asking for a raise.

I then stated that I was going to wait to see how our year went with hitting our goals, if we hot bonuses, etc

Well, fate interviened.. A month ago I was hospitalized with pneumonia and sepsis. I was in the hospital for 7 days and then bedridden at home for two weeks. At work, they had to divide my work between 4 people. I figured when I did go back it would be given back to me, but no! My bosses finally realized that I was overworked! We can't hire anyone but some of my work is still being done by others, which has helped because I'm not back to working full days yet. So maybe in the end the blessing isn't more money, but not having to go full throttle everyday. Oh and being alive because there were a few days in the hospital that I thought I was not going to make it!

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 will start in September and they are discussed in December, so I will bring up the raise then. Especially if we get the bonus.

That's where my head is now.
