O happy day *rolleyes*

i got my yearly review today.. in every catagory.. i meet or exceed the specs for my job.. and in the most imporant areas.. i'm doing the best.. so here we only get a raise during our yearly reviews.. and i got a kick ass .60 an hour raise

maybe you can't sense the sarcasim in my words.. but trust me its there..

i know everyone things they are underpaid, but for what we are here do i really think that we are needed to hold alot of knowlage and they want us to expand that without a proper pay increase.. i mean, they are looking for people who are Auto Techs and know everything a tech does.. but they are paying us 15% less.

So I'm guessing the homicide cleanup shirt you had on at Ken's class wasn't a real work shirt then?

I had a friend that worked for a small struggling software firm. He took 10% pay cuts for 2 consecutive years, as well as having the company match for his 401k revoked. After about 75% of the staff quit, they finally raised him back up to the salary that he started at out of school. A few months later, they layed him off. That either says something about a man's loyalty or stupidity to stick with a company that bends you over like that.

Dude, the place I work at has a standard 3% raise for salary employees. I created multiple proposals that gained the company 50+ thousand dollars in my first year of working. I took only a couple sick days and maybe 2 days of vacation of my earned 3 weeks. I spent countless hours working past the 9-5pm timeline and carry after hour pager coverage half of the year (split with another employee) in which I was called hundreds of time, pulled out of bed, dealing with emergencies. I recruited our current manager who has an A+ review from higher supervisors. I created multiple websites (outside of my job description) to increase efficiency for our department. I created multiple spreadsheets, graphics, and programs for other departments to help them be more efficient purely so I WOULDN'T be called for SHIT they are suppose to do. The extent to which I'm being bent over a fucked prison style in the ass would make most inmates cringe. After the year...my raise.... 3%....... Thanks cocksuckers.

I learned long ago to do exactly the job you're being paid to do. Or, in employer's terms, you get what you pay for. If the employer pays for a 30k/year employee, you should give him a 30k/year employee. (Maybe 40k/year employee if you're hoping for a promotion and the company does that kind of stuff.) If they're willing to pay you 100k/year, only THEN should you give them 100k/year worth of work.

Shit, I took a huge page cut 3 years ago and have received no raise in the last 2 years. Sucks, but all we can do is wait it out.

That's what I 've had to do this year. What's the point of being rated 1st out four mgrs if you're the lowest paid of the four & schedule constantly changing preventing you from planning a life. Oh, but you're too valuable to make any lateral or upwardly horizontal moves. The railroad industry is like the bermuda triangle.

I'm in the same boat right now....

Exactly. I don't know how many jobs I put in tons of extra hours and dedication, only to have one company fold, another move to f'ing Georgia, and another layoff half the damn staff based on salary and not based on perfomance.

Right now I punch the clock and get my paycheck. I have a life outside work. I was supposed to get raise in 60-90 days...that was WELL over a year ago. hummph...

Good points,

See, in my situation, I'm pretty sure HR would be interested in hearing my case with the extent of extra work we are doing. I am being paid for 35 hours a week, 9-5pm. We don't get overtime because we are salary, but the typical system of compensation would be comp time. You put in 50 hours in a week, you got some time off coming to you. Now, its not necessarily that they've said No to that, its more that I can never get away. People are so dependent on myself and my co-worker that they would crumble. Oh, and on a fun note, Im working sat, sun, and mon....7am - whenever we're done. I feel like im Peter in office space.... Ummm yeah, we're gonna need you to come in tomorrow...oh, I'm going to need you to come in on Sunday too, we're a little behind and have to play catch up...THANKS....

That is right !
In fact if you dare to work more that you are suposed to you will expose management incompetence to proper plan your time.
