I am happy to say I am getting a raise. Been workin for Amazon in the warehouse and my supervisor finally noticed I was working hard. I am really good at making sure the safety regs are up to code and that the people I work with are productive. Promotion and raise here I come!
Just saw this article in Business Insider and thought I'd share it. Theres a lot of good thoughts in here (some might need to be converted for your particular situation but the principles translate pretty well. #whadayathink ? #raise #promotion #SelfAdvocacy
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! GM says he wasn’t aware that the store was being sold but I don’t believe one word! I depend on my job so I feel like I was left with no choice but to agree to stay with new owners... BUMMER
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
I currently work on a team that is structured with money director (my boss), two managers (myself and another), and 12 senior/junior analysts below us split between us.
I just found out the other manager put in his 2 weeks and will leave the team short handed at the management level. We currently have no immediate internal or external prospects for the other manager position. Is now the time to approach my boss about a raise as I will be the only manager over 12 individuals? What would be a good % to shoot for? My initial thoughts are 20%.
Well every cumpaney i have worked for over the past 10 years has made me belieave i was going to be promoted . Worked me like a slave and then no permotion and a joke for a rase i worked for winn dixie for about 3 years never mised a day of work allways gave110 % eaven getting groshrie baskets in the rain cold wet rain at that for like a 12 houer shift and when they had a open fulltime positon they promoted a coworker who was only imploied with the cumpaney for like 3 munths and ihad been ther for like 2 or 3 years and they wonder y peopple get mad and quet ther job!!!
I was just offered a job that I know is worth $20 hr. , its paying a cheeseeee $11 hr I'm not stupid and I know I'm worth more than that and the job should pay better that what their offering, I said HELL NO to them and he had the nerve to ask me if i knew anyone that would work,, , i hung up the phone.
So I was promised a raise if I came back to work full time and I agreed on a certain date with one of the owners along with my gm and two weeks later and still no raise I talked to my gm who directed me to my regional gm who pretty much said they can't help me so I them emailed the owners and have still heard nothing what do I do
Whether you’re looking for a job or have one now, the time will come when you understandably will want to make more money. So, when you feel the moment has arrived to ask for a raise; follow these steps to help make it happen!
1- Make a plan Decide when you will ask and whom you will speak with. If it’s not your boss then who should this discussion take place with? Timing is also important, if your boss is going through a particularly stressful week it might be better to ask at another time!
2- Know it’s ok to ask It doesn’t make you greedy or entitled, so don’t be nervous! Your manager has likely been through this many times before and he/she expects it to happen. Be strong in your ask and know this is what is best for you. If the answer is no, you didn’t do anything wrong. My suggestion would be to follow up and ask them what would be needed to earn a raise! This way you have something to work towards to make that possible. You will also know where you stand and why.
3- Share where you want to go Companies like to know that you are in it for the long haul. So, stop and think about where you see yourself in another year. What can you bring to the company during that time? What do you personally want to accomplish? This is the time to speak up about positive things you want to progress towards at the company.
4- Know your worth and the market It’s important to know how much you are being paid compared to the current market. Sites like GlassDoor and others will help with this! Simply search for your job title, area in which you live, and then look for jobs with similar responsibilities to the ones you have now. This will give you a baseline. If you feel you are being underpaid comparably save the data you have found. This will help you put together a number in your mind that is reasonable and on target with the current market for your position!
5- Map out what you’ve accomplished This goes hand in hand with your plan! Before you ask for a raise spend some time putting together a list of all the things you’ve done over the time you’ve been there (or since your last raise). Note how far you’ve grown from the beginning to end. Be sure to pay attention to any specific accomplishments and highlight these! This will help you prove to your manager that you not only have done great things but are continuing to achieve more.
Good luck : )
Please comment with any questions or suggestions on how to earn a raise.
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 raise. Any opinions???
