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

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?

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.
