Never. They come automatic every 3 months for the first year, 6 months second year, and then annually. Also get vacation pay (1 weeks pay) whether we take it or not, and $100 bonuses every week if we deliver on time, drive at least 2,500 miles, and stay above the mpg goal.

a month ago maybe two.
i researched the average salary for my position and experience, i presented the data, explained them why i wasn't exactly average and how fucked they would be if they tried to replace me with a new guy then asked for a raise.

Have never had a job, have always been self-employed. So, never.

ASKING for a raise
The only way to get a raise outside of scheduled review periods is to threaten to quit. Get a job offer somewhere else and tell your boss that you're leaving unless they come close to matching it.

If you bring any value to the company, if they like you, and if you and aren't asking for a ridiculous amount then they'll match it instead of losing you.

Note that this only works once or twice in a given company.

I don't need to. I'm union. My union's negotiating team does that for me. If I like it, I vote yes.

After every year, or when you make big skill advances in your position.

ask for raise
get it
2 weeks later company hires a new guy straight out of college
boss asks me to train new hire
1.5 months later
boss sad to report some required "cutbacks" get laid off

Go ahead ask but have another job offer ready to go when you do

I feel like asking for a pay rise soon but it seems a bit degrading asking for more money

i pray every day they let me go finally.
i'm late very day, i bitch about the management every chance i get, i'm really doing everything to be a bad employee aside from straight up refusing to do my job. i can't do that for some reason. (maybe i should just keep on asking for raises?)
but they don't let me go. maybe this year...
i only want to rest i don't even think i would want to find a job for a year. neeting is best in life really.

at my old job i got a 3 dollar raise from my old boss because i had just gotten a diesel state inspector license. i used it to do state inspections on the diesel trucks. not many people had it and wanted to get it.

The last time I asked for a raise I was told I should be making less than I was.

Unions are for cucks. They get you in a higher tax bracket and after union fees, you're making barely more than non union employees. At least that's how it is here in NYC
