Asking for more $$

Can anyone share tips or advice on how they asked for a pay rise, and successfully achieved it? Asking for a friend...πŸ˜‰ (pic is my most fierce face-thought it was important given the topic! πŸ˜‚)

I don’t advice as I have my own business with Young living but wanted to share a funny story lol My friend once asked her boss for a raise. He said he will think about it and get back to her the next day. She was soo nervous and later that night her damn blackberry pocket dialled her boss. The msg was this β€œ$$$$$”. 😳🀣

My experience with asking for a raise was, preparing for the meeting with my boss by requesting it on an arranged day, and telling her I wanted to discuss my wages. Then collecting evidence that others in the same field make more than I do. And then explaining what I have done personally in my time with the company that makes me an asset and worth more than I am making now. That what I did to prepare. But when I got there I was surprised that she had already prepared a raise for me by over a dollar. So that was something. Good luck!

I was able to successfully negotiate a raise. I knew a title bump was coming, and I pointed out all my title/experience and current pay against the industry average, brought a list of all the accomplishments and extra things I had taken on that year, and was confident during the conversation. I went in asking for 10% and ended up getting 18%! Just be confident and know your worth!

Statistics have shown asking for a raise on a Thursday after 4 p.m. I know it sounds bizarre but I read it in the statistics blog apparently the boss / supervisor whatever is typically in a better mood knowing that tomorrow is Friday and is able to get back to you on the issue sooner having the weekend to regenerate and the feedback is usually positive good luck

I asked for a pay raise about 6 months ago. It took awhile to get up the courage but I finally just came out and asked. But leading up to it I picked up more hours and I worked my butt off to show that I deserve a raise.
