how long after working for a company do ou expect a raise? Or whats the longest you've worked at the same pay rate...if u were paid a low hourly rate???

 The reason I asked is bc i work for a lady that dont really treat her employees/subcontractors right..I hate it bc im the office manager which means i have to do all the payroll && deal with these girls face to face...alot of them are good girls & very good aides..they dont leave bc its alot of bs in this field & they know here they will def get paid...might be late but its coming...one girl just left she has been with this company since 08 & still making minimum wage...she asked where Ms Thomas (thats what we'll call her) was & i said at her store (she just opened a store last year) & the girl was like dang she is opening alot of businesses i wish we could at least get a lil quarter raise or something...but how she said it..it didnt sound nasty or nothing she kinda laughed it off...i have asked her about it but she swears she cant afford it...i know she is picking and choosing...paying different maybe bc this person raised some hell..im rambling into a different story what i really wanna know it how long is too before you start looking for a new job??

It depends... It could be up to the company, like a small business.
If someone has a contract, it would state how often they get a raise.
Sometimes people get annual raises, usually with larger companies.
It can depend on your performance or sales as well.
If it were me, and I didn't see a raise in five years... I'm throwing up the deuce baby.

Usually if you get evaluated each year, you get some kind of raise. What's the point in the evaluation lol. It sounds like your boss just don't want to pay her loyal employees.

Wow, incurring fees because the boss is lazy or late with the check is ridiculous. Sadly, I've witness that happened to my friends. Doing business like that could resort to no longer having a business. She doesn't do that to you right?

How long have you been with this company?  Private companies are different from gov't. I'm a civil servant so we have contract negotiations every 2 yrs I believe. We also have "longevity" increases and so forth.

But I'd ask for a performance eval and take it from there. But if this one person was there since 08 and she hasn't had a pay increase, chances are you won't either. I'd start looking.

Honestly the few different places I've worked once your yearly review was up a raise was expected. I just always assumed that was customary but it's not. Like in certain fields of business a raise comes in your case when ever the boss man/woman feels it to be necessary.
