Do people ask for raises or are they given automatically after a performance rating?
The last time I remember talking about a raise...
My co-workers were talking about this raise coming for doing this extra project. I didn't believe it... and according to them, the boss said yes (for all of us). I still didn't fully believe it... then I heard the boss make a comment that sounded like it was going to happen. I was like , it's gonna happen.
Then two weeks later, my co-workers were wondering why they hadn't heard anything and it hasn't happened... so they went to ask and came back PISSED! It wasn't happening... I later over-heard the boss talking with our manager... bossed wanted to do it, but it just wasn't in the current budget as the budget had gotten cut way back.
Bummer, got your hopes up for nothing.
Yeah but I was strongly doubting it most of the time, so I was right and didn't take it as hard.
It's been so long ago, I don't even remember.
If I didn't get one when I felt like I should...I would be asking.
I never asked for a raise. Raises were just given at our yearly reviews....
Same here and we get bonuses every quarter.
You work for a great company...lucky you.
I don't think I ever have. When I thought I could earn more in another job, I went for another job. If I have to ask for it I figure they don't think I'm worth it. So I'll find what I need elsewhere.
Never did.The government decided if we got a payrise
Hehe it didn't go well to be honest so I thought sod em and left the company.
If I need more money, I tell the store owner I need more and he gives it to me. His only option is to pay me what I want, or I find another store and put him out of business.
Sounds like you have it made.
I've never asked for a pay raise...But I've gotten several generous tips.
