In this day and age it is very disturbing that discrimination can play such pivotal role in an organization. I cannot call it anything less than discrimination. I have been working in an office where my supervisor is white and I do almost everything in the office to get things going and they changed my job title and I was given an increase of approximately $1.5. There are other employees in the department who perform the similar function as I do and they are paid more that I and given some fabulous titles and I with 2 degrees have to perform the functions and being underpaid. I have been trying relentlessly to find gainful employment elsewhere but getting most of the responses for positions that I am not interested in. I don't know if I am doing something wrong but would love for some guidance which will be useful. Thanks.
I had a quarter end performance review with my manager this week. Scored an overall 4 out of 5 rating and received a $.27 cent raise. I make $11.50 per hour right now. This is my first full time job. Is this an average pay increase for a higher end performance rating?
So the owner of my job is really impress with my work and abilities to multitask and go from cold bar to serving drinks. They finally got me on a regular schedule set. They told me they lover how quickly I get work done and satisfy customers to make them feel like their right at home. And also customer have been giving me outstanding reviews to the owner
I am in line for a promotion to make the jump from an operational position to the management position. I have been promoted once within the operational position band and wasn't sure if I should be expecting a higher raise now that I am being promoted to a new band of responsibility. I wanted to reach out to the community to see if they have had similar experiences with being promoted to a management level position
I worked as a Secretary at a medium company (I was the only one in the office 27 yrs. ago) and taught myself how to type, use a computer system, accounting program, Microsoft and became a full fledged bookkeeper. The company grew and had two subsidiary companies within the company so I had to take care of five bank accounts, do three different payrolls and do weekly/quarterly/yearly taxes for all. I was there for 27 years and have not had a raise in 17 (or a bonus in 10) and when I asked for one I was told I was a non essential employee in the company (I worked alone for 27 years). So I quit.
Two months later I got a job on the recommendation of a bonding agent and CPA I worked with (who worked with both companies also) as they needed someone in there fast and liked my resume'....lasted six weeks, I wasn't allowed any control of anything so I created work and it freaked her out (I started with the filing system)...she told me she wasn't ready to give up control.
Got a job three weeks ago and first day I was sent to the filing room...It was horrendous (the whole office was stacks of papers everywhere). So I start organizing the filing room along with learning new things along the way, but was always told to go to the filing room and I gave ideas on how this could work better and I created more space and making files (the other filing clerk has been hiding stuff since last year).....I was told Tuesday (by someone who has work there less than I have to just do as you are told). I got the filing done and started on my new work.
I was called after 5 Tuesday when leaving work to be told that I was let go and was told I was not allowed back in the building to get my things or to contact anyone there. I got home and had an email....They said it wasn't going to be a long-term fit. They also mentioned you were focusing a little too much on the filing room when there were additional things they were wanting you to try and do.
My company has a history of financial troubles but pays extremely well. Lately the management have adopted the strategy of only promoting people when they can afford to increase their salary. However, they also demote people when they can no longer maintain that rate of pay. Yes, the workload does change based on the position so I'm always paid "fairly" for the work I'm doing, but I also don't like not knowing if my income will change any given quarter.
Well asking about a raise has already paid off today is my birthday and my manager asked me to see him and he gave me a $2 raise! Don't ever be afraid to ask because it may pay off!
