When you get a raise, do you typically request it in writing or just…wait to see it on your next paycheck…?

You’ll see it in the next paycheck

My firm sends an email/letter letting you know that you're getting one, and when it'll take effect (usually the next pay check but could be on a specific date - e.g., from January 1st, etc.).

Thanks. I guess my boss has been a little disorganized and unreliable, and the role is switching a bit too so I was hoping for something in writing. I got a little pushback so wanted to see if my request was u conventional, and it appears that it is, so maybe I’ll just drop it and hope for the best!

Email is fine but you definitely want documentation. Thank him for the raise in an email - “I wanted to thank you for our conversation on Tuesday. Receiving the positive review and raise is very appreciated.” If your boss specified a dollar amount and date it would become effective list those details too. If you’re not sure about either it’s fine to ask.
