Here's an update from this thread where I was asking how to ask the bizzoss for a raise. I waited and waited until when I though it would be the best time to ask, which I believed to be last Friday. That day marked the day that I had been at my work for exactly 1 year, and I was scheduled for a yearly review. I took some of your advice, and basically said that I wanted to make sure that I was working at a level indicated by my job title. I told him that I thought I was working at the next step up, and gave him a list of things that my position does, and a list of the next postion up. He looked at it for about 10 seconds, and said "ok"
I haven't given him a money figure yet, because first I have to go through an application process(UC system rules) and after it hopefully gets approved, that's when we will negotiate. But so far so good, step 1 is accomplished. Thanks for all those great suggestions in the last thread. Wish me luck!
