Asking for a Raise
Get you info lined up. Know what you have done for the company. Know the average pay in your area (city, state) for you current position. Be ready to answer any questions you may get for things you need to improve on (no one is perfect). Be prompt, detailed, and don't beat around the bush with wells, i was wonderings..., etc.
The job interview is not the time for compensation negotiation
Compensation requirements can certainly be submitted w/ a resume and curliculum vitae, but to discuss it in a preliminary interview is tacky.
IF YOU ARE WORTH HIRING YOU ARE WORTH WAITING FOR
NEVER LEAVE A JOB WITHOUT NOTICE NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCE BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU ARE GOING TO WORK FOR AND IF THEY FIRE YOU WITHIN A FEW WEEKS OF YOUR HIRE DATE WITHOUT REASON EXCEPT PROBATION PERIOD THEY DON'T LOOSE ANYTHING AND YOU LOST A RECOMMENDATION AND IT GOES AGAINST YOU NO MATTER WHAT
Never start below what your worth no matter what is promised in the future.
I work for a company that from the start has promised a lot but has not payed up, literaly. My duties have doubled over what they were supposed to be when I was hired. I replaced three people & am making less than every one of them. I am underpaid and overworked. I work with all men & have noticed that the only people getting the signifigant salary raises & treated like valued employee's are the men. It's distressing to see this in this day & age and yet it still exists. My advice would be to always stand your ground & if you require a certain amount of pay then you need to stick to it & not negotiate down. Because once your working for them for this less amount they don't feel like they should have to pay more for the same services they are getting at a discounted rate. Sincerely, Jamie.
