Re: Pay rise

It's difficult if it's for the same job scope and position. That's because you accepted the job under those agreed terms. Unless you are important to the company and you have other offers.

If it's for a different position or greater job scope within the same position then by all means negotiate.

Well, was he hired at about the same time as yourself? and are you sure that he doesn't have anything extra that justifies that extra $300? If that's so, then I think you'd be justified to ask for a little extra, but you need to be in the company long enough to be able make some noise. Don't expect $300 extra tho. Actually, if he's hired at roughly the same time and has roughly the same background as you do, the company's hiring practices should be questioned because they should know what this would do to morale.

Anyway, if your company doesn't pay you well, you might want to casually start looking for something else.

Yes that's right, must learn all the things in the company as much as you can. From how the company operate to how to fix a Printer when the paper is jam. Although it may look like shit work, but when you not around the newbie will look like cock standing there don't know what to do.

Some more you must learn how to CARRY and LICK your Boss's BALLS, be it the balls is in between the legs or on the chest level. Cause like most boss, they love to be treated like YA YA papaya

Re: Pay rise

If you are motivated enough, try to perform above and beyond what's been asked of you. Help whoever who needs it, contribute as much as you can, even putting in extra hours if necessary. The company may see your effort and reward you for it. If they don't, then you know that this is probably not the company for you anyway. At least you should be able to get a good testimonial from them then.

Re: Pay rise

The point is not just to ask, but to justify why they should give you the raise.

Going "all out" for them is a good way, but don't judge your worthiness for a raise based on your effort or time, judge based on the results. Tell the management the value of the work you have done, the money you have saved the company, or the opportunities you have created.
