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 : )

I've worked in the pest control industry for 6 years and have never been taught something or had a situation happen that would hinder me from wanting to work somewhere, but my last job I've worked. I was crossed trained and since that happened I've taught new people who came in to work under me, so I waited awhile and asked for more money.. I used the chain of command to keep everything professional til it got to the top guy and he straight told me, well told the manager he wasn't paying me extra anything after working there for 3 years with little to none complaints from customers as well as excellent attendants I felt I was done dirty so I left.. Is there any better way I could've handled this?
So I've got a decent job. No benefits or anything and he hired me in the spot. Well, when he asked how much I want I froze and blurted out $10/hr. (Ridiculous on my part) well I found out the position was paying 14/hr. And now I'm kicking myself. .. another employee told me to just tell them I had another job offer but I really want to stay , and can they give me 14 , I dont know what to do or how to go about doing it, I've only been there a week, but they all really like me and I think I'm doing pretty good. Help!
I am always looking for great opportunities in life and to grow my soul. With that being said even after I get the job or jobs I worked so hard to get I am always still looking for a better jobs and to better myself. Usually after 90 days on the job if no raise I move to a better paying job, I take it as the universe was using that job to train me for something better. When employers question my short time on jobs or reason for leaving I say to better myself all body, mind and soul. Great job hunting to you all folks
Head of house hold of six-seven,(with I) striving to get the best out of hard work by putting in extra effort, time, and elevating average expectations. However, even though this type of discipline can do wonders for entrepreneurs I've come to the realization that in the general work force there's a sense of overlooking good ol' HUSTLE. Now I know, hustle is/should be a general trait but I can't help but to feel powerless while persuing a career within my current industry or I should say company. I've never put a price on the quality or quantity of my work, it has always been my personal goal to do my best and strive to be the best. I cannot-will not settle; ever. I can do alot more and by observing this now; I've come to remind myself: I am that fuel I want, not the raise. Perhaps I've been putting my energy where it's not appriciated Company is good but was I trying to settle? For steady income, healthcare, job security? I got skills, those things are manageable...I'm a Hustler; I strive #Hustle #fuelforthefire #raise #breakthrough

In order for me to get my payraise I need to go throught new hire orientation again. I was offered a new position and is now working in that departmant for 2 weeks, I notice my salary did not reflect the increase, so I asked why and was told that inorder for me to get my raise I need to through new hire orientation again. My question is WHY ???. I can understand dept.training but orientation ? Please can someone explain.thanks
There are a few things that money can’t buy and I not only found discretion to be one of the top things my employer found the most valuable but honesty as well. You just can’t put a price on someone’s integrity and if you possess these qualities your boss will reward you as mine did! These are my two points when negotiating for a raise as well as any bonuses! Go for it!
Why is it so hard to find a job that pays a decent salary, and why don't companies give regular raises anymore?
My advice to people interested in working at #AlliedBartonsecurityservices as a #Securityofficer ...
It's not a bad place to work for but would let them know that they probably wouldn't get a pay raise every year like most jobs. I have been with the company for 4 years and for the first 3 years I didn't get one apparently it depends on your contract which I don't think is fair.
