How long did it take you to be promoted in each of your positions? I’m trying to figure out if it’s too early to start talking about a promotion

Tenure is only 1 evaluation criteria for promotion. Focus on your contributions and how your performance compares to your peers and people who are the next level up. That will get you much farther than saying you’re due for a promo because of time. Also, everyone is on their own path. Circumstances for 1 person getting promoted may not be the same as you.

Supervisor to AMD was a little over 1.5 years for me but that step can run the gamut based on your performance and how the team is doing and set up. I’ve seen people go from supe to AMD in a year or even in 3 years.

1 year as Asst 2 years as Planner 3 years as Sup Now an AMD (6mos) My advice is not to stress over it, but also know your worth and when it’s time to leave in order to get a promotion.

Six months from Asst. to Buyer. Five years to Supervisor. Two years to AMD. Two years to Director.

As difficult as it sounds, it can be a huge mistake to promote someone before they’re ready. Especially as people get higher up on the ladder. Client expectations go up with each promotion. I’ve had clients ask someone off the business after promoting them. They loved them as a supervisor, but decided after 6 months that they weren’t stepping up to Associate Director level expectations.

I never got a promotion. Raises, yes. Title bumps, no. In order to get those, I had to move between companies.

There definitely isn’t a standard on average from sup to AMD probably 2 years but I was promoted in a year and half and I’ve seen other people promoted within in a year.
