Default Anybody else get a raise at work??

It's that time again...for job reviews. Got mine yesterday and of course we all want more but depends upon how the company is doing, with corporate (at times) overlooking their shoulder. Since the corporate shareholders were not happy at all of our profit margin, too many machines being down to make money, the raises at work on average was 1.5% of base pay. Got mine of course....still so close to 19.50 A lot of unhappy employees tho, I can say that much. In fact, a lot of them aren't getting anything.

ive averaged 1-2 bucks an hour raise per year. last year i got company car and credit card for fuel which saves me 200 a week in fuel. plus no upkeep on work vehicle. and a nice 1500 dollar bonus on my last paycheck for years end was very nice.

Still no raise. Hell I've given up on seeing the raise I was told I'd see once I was hired on.

Yay for 11.50.

Gawd I need to get on a rig.

I work for a small gas measurement company and we just got bought out by a lot bigger company 6 months ago and they give raises in a retarded fashion. We technically get our raise in January but we don't see it on our pay checks till April.. And we get backpay for the months but they tax the hell out of it as if it was a bonus. It will be a $3 or $4 raise so I can't complain too much, just wish it was effective now

Weird. Probably waiting until tax filing time but still as you said, that's stupid.

I myself can easily go to another machine shop and get more $$. But what if the works slows down and layoffs start happening?? However, it's the job security keeping me there. I've survived 1 layoff in the last 7 years I've been there. Can't really complain about that.
