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.

Thoughts?

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".

Oh no, we discussed what the salary would be, and all benefits, vacations, etc upon hiring

Sorry, I am referencing the recent discussions on the promotion, not at the time of onboarding.  Has the promotion actually been discussed or you are just assuming the promotion is in line because the predecessor is leaving the company?  If talks come up about the new position, I would work in salary talks somehow.  But if you are asking if you should ask about the raise after 3 months, as promised, vs. waiting a few extra weeks for the raise to come at time of promotion effective, I am in favor of keeping mum about the money.  It is not worth aggravating anyone by asking if the money is coming in a couple week's time.

Just be patient and see if it kicks in automatically in the next pay cycle. If not, go talk to them. I don't think this is a particularly sensitive situation - they promised you a raise. If it doesn't happen automatically, I would say something along the lines of, "I am excited about the promotion and extremely grateful, however, it doesn't appear that my salary was increased, is this something you can look into?" I would probably ask HR vs. asking your line manager - it seems more logistical than anything else.

Strong no homo but does anyone else ever go emotiobrah during intense lift sessions?

Just today was doing some heavy azz rows and started imagining I was Gohan and Piccolo jumped in front of me as Nappa sent a giant blast my way, sacrificing his life to save mine. I vowed to do the best I could and become the strongest warrior possible to avenge him, and about midway thru the set starting getting choked up and a tear formed in my eye. I crushed the set and the rest of the workout.

Talks about new position have been coming up often, the person I am replacing is going part time starting Monday, only to continue training me, after another month or so he is leaving entirely. Starting Monday I will be sitting in his old position, and doing his job.

I don't think it is really a sensitive issue either, but it's a somewhat busy company, and the boss is really immersed in day to day operations, I could completely see it slipping his mind. Though when I run into him at the office he is always cool with me, and either small talks for a few moments, or asks if i'm getting a handle on everything.

Also, I AM going to be the HR supervisor hahaha, and I did ask the guy who i'm replacing what it usually is like regarding pay rise after training, and he said they usually handle it on their own without having to ask, but similar to what you said, in the event that they don't, just go and ask the boss.

I'm probably just being overly paranoid.

Don't think I ever have told anyone this, but the way I get pumped up for huge lifts is sitting down, closing my eyes and listening to songs that remind me of my ex and just getting angry as hell for all the shit that cunt put me through.

Perfect thanks. Gonna try this soon.

Picked up some bronkaid. Not expecting much, I'll be happy if it decreses my hunger. 25mg and 100mg of caffeine 3x a day?

You can buy it legally as a research chemical I think. It comes as a liquid, which is a bit of a hassle, but it's not hard to find. I think you can even get hgh and a lot of ancillaries that way, but they're expensive. Using performance enhance drugs would make you a cheater though.


I wouldn't follow a strict schedule on ephederine, just take it when your hungry/tired. I do 20mg if im kind of hungry and 40mg if im very hungry or before lifting.
