If you're paid hourly...

how often do you get a raise and how much is it? I just started working for my uncle's chocolate business 2 months ago. It's only $10/hr but it's been years since I worked for someone other than myself (I used to do freelance writing and will eventually do it again). This is fairly easy work/ a change of pace...Anyway, I was thinking that after 6 months-1 year people usually get raises but not sure...

I work hourly as a nanny. In 6 years I have gotten $6. I have gotten it $2 every 2 years. I am now at a number that wont change for awhile. Im ok with that. I have paid holidays, sick days, personal days and vacations days AND I'm PT.

  I work 2 jobs. One is a set daily wage working for the city and I havn't had a raise in 6 years. I've been at my 2nd job for 2 years and have gotten 2 raises totaling $1.25.

I know at DH work, he gets a measley $0.40 raise yearly, he is changing departments soon and will get $1.00 more in about two weeks, then his yearly raise in August. He has been in his current department at least 3-4 years and only gotten the yearly raise. With both raises he will be making $12.23 an hour, he has worked at the same place for 8 years (in August).

In my current job I will be eligible for a raise (not guaranteed) every two years.  Not sure how much it will be though.  My last job we got a .25 raise every year.

I get a raise annually. Generaly either 2% or 3%..depending upon what my employer funds it at. 

Througout the years they've given out market adjustments. I've been employed at the same place for 24 years. I'm a nurse.

Many jobs don't give raises like before. How up and beyond your normal duties are you working? I would say not until a year. You will be lucky if is before a year. Many jobs make cuts now to save money, not raises.

I think 6 months to a year is standard.

Some places give a raise after 90 days. Some others you have to wait a year. I've only been with my company about 9 months, and should be up for a raise in about 3 months. I don't know how much of a raise. Probably something like $0.25

At a minimum there should be an annual performance review with a raise given depending on your work habits/performance.   If there are employer concerns - they should always be addressed immediatel;y abd noted.  There should not be any surprises at review time.  You should always know where you stand.

If I remember right, I would get a raise once a year, when I worked.
