So, I asked my boss for a $2.50 raise (which is a large incline, up to $12/hr). I have worked as an assistant manager at a eBay store surrounded by an upscale area for 8+ months now. NO BENEFITS! I receieved an e-mail from another co-owner subsequent that night:
Do I deserve a bring to the fore? ($9.50/hr assistant manager)?
"I want to let you know that [boss] informed me of your request/ obligation to maintain the ability to move into your hot residence. I will speak with you on this matter on Wednesday. Just know that we regard the world of you and your happiness is a priority to us just as, as expected, is the success of [our company]. Thank you for coming to us with your request. We appreciate your honesty."
In your assessment, what will be the outcome on Wednesday?! What should be the outcome?
You can probably expect a 3% raise. That's typical of any business for nearly every hand, unless you can point out why they need you more than someone else. I would suggest making a list of the tasks that you do over and above anyone else surrounded by the company and propose it to the manager or owner. Good luck!
Congrats on making the request! So often people sit and complain something like the wage but don't make strides to do anything to effect the change.
You want to prepare for your meeting on Wednesday. To ask for an increase is the first step. Now you need to show how it's a nouns business decision for them to honor your request. For example, have your duties and responsibilities enjoy increased or changed? Are you currently being paid below flea market value for your skill set? Do you have a skill that may not hold been a requirement when you were hired but would very soon add value to the dept?
If your basis is only to afford a new sports car, apt or life style you risk looking unreliable and unprofessional.
