A month ago I received my annual review/ merit increase, which was a little higher than the 3% for market adjustment. I’m still underpaid and not happy. I accepted the review at the time because I needed time to digest it. I still haven’t had a 1:1 with her yet but plan to ask when we do. Is it too late to ask? Any tips for asking for a raise? She’s also giving me more responsibility, more work, having me take more ownership over things her and someone else used to. Im so nervous about asking

I think at the time of your 1:1 is an excellent time to broach the subject. Gl!

I would explain to her that you are underpaid based on the industry average (bring data from glassdoor, levels, etc.) and that your responsibilities have also increased.

She mentioned HR gets market data from research that is valid (but they don’t share what that is )and said not from like Glassdoor or other self reported data. But I know for a fact I’m underpaid because looking thru this app as well as I have had a few convo with recruiters offering higher salaries. Should I mention that?

You can show her any documents or information that can support your claim. Don't be nervous. Just be honest and transparent if ever you get the chance to have a 1:1. Good luck!

Hi all, I’ve been pondering this question in my mind for awhile and haven’t found any solid answers. How much is the average wage for a Prep Cook & Dishwasher? If it matters, I’m in Virginia. I’m in the process of learning to be a Line Cook so that should give me more courage to ask for a raise. I’m currently at $14/h, and with reduced hours, inflation isn’t helping me. Any insights will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

This is a no brainer, right?

I’d like to be prepared for the initial phone screen convo, which will only last 20-30 minutes.

How can I tactfully still talk to the recruiter about landing closer to 130? Not trying to be greedy, but certainly aiming high!
