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