Shifting this thread back to employment for a moment, would like any and all opinions.
Got my first "real" job out of school at the beginning of the year.
Technically, I interviewed on December 13th, and started working two weeks later, after background checks and other miscellaneous bullshit.
I'm extremely grateful for the job, considering my english degree, and considering the fact that i'm in NY and jobs for new grads, especially with liberal arts degres, are relegated mostly to retail and food service.
In any case, while it might not be all that glamorous, or what I want to be doing, I feel lucky, and the job is pretty decent too.
When they hired me, they informed me it would be 3 months of training with hourly pay, and after 3 months they are going to offer me a promotion, and salary.
Monday will be 3 months on the dot pretty much, now should I go and speak with my boss about the pay rise? The promotion is already on the cards, that I know because the person I am replacing is leaving, and it's been talked about in the office i'm stepping into his role.
To be honest I don't care about job title, promotions, etc, I just want the higher pay. Should I assume they are going to automatically start paying me more beginning pay period monday, or should I go and explicitly speak with them?
I was thinking of waiting for the next paycheck, and if nothing has changed, then going to speak with them.
Has salary been discussed with the new job title after the promotion? If not, I would somehow incorporate salary talk when you talk to your manager about the promotion. I have to doubt they simply said "here's a promotion. you will not get a pay increase".
