Hi ladies, Is the 6 month mark too early to ask for a raise? I have been required to over step my job role in almost every capacity. My bosses boss is contacting my personal phone on this weekend as the main point of contact for crisis comms on social media. I am also helping more senior social media members often. I have received 5 pieces of overwhelmingly positive written feedback from colleagues and these will be reviewed at the end of probation talk. I just don't know how to ask. 😔

If you choose to ask make sure you go in with clear facts, and not feelings or opinions. I would look at your original job description of you have it and point out how things have changed. I would also bring the positive feedback comments you received and potentially show how much time you are spending working after hours if you weren’t originally told you would need to do that when you were hired. Also I recommend going in with a clear recommendation of how much more money the extra work you are doing is worth. I do think you have a good case to ask, but just make sure you are well prepared and accept the potential possibility of them saying no as you don’t want to run the risk of disposing your job or boss because they didn’t give you a raise so soon.

*despising your job

No, I think 6 months is more than enough time to get a good idea of what additional long-term responsibilities the job entails. The worst that can happen is that they say no. But if they're reasonable and you can back up your request with evidence of the extra work, they should at the very least be open to renegotiate your original contract at this point.

It's worth asking, they have been leaning on you heavily. But are you ok with being texted off hours so often? You could lean into this and/or create some boundaries for yourself. Or even consider proposing time and a half/bonuses for on call weekend work.
