Asking for a raise
I've been in my job since October, and in that time, my number of responsibilities have been growing steadily, to the stage where I've decided I don't get paid enough (not that I did in the first place anyway). I need to know how you broach the issue of a raise. It was strongly suggested at my interview that I would be given periodical raises, and I know that I don't get paid nearly as much as my predecessor. So what do I do? Do I just straight out ask for it? Or do I ask for a review in a few weeks, to give them a chance to assess my progress (which they should know anyway, since I work closely with the manager)? We have stocktakes every now and then, which are a decent indicator of how well things have gone, so that could be a review date, but the last one was only last week, so I'd have to wait a while. Basically, April is the date when I will really need the extra cash, purely because I will start paying tax proper then, but I would like more cash as soon as possible. Any advice appreciated.
