Every company has different policies ...
The most common practice is a "probationary period". Usually it's 90 days. Then your employer will meet with you to review your initial performance.
It's at this time that the employer will or will not decide to offer you a permanent position.
If an employer does decide to keep you, they can give you an increase in your wages at this time. After this, the most common practice is for employers to meet with you every six months or on your yearly anniversary date for reviews and possible Raises and Promotions.
Depending on the type of business, and your position, when you are offered a permanent position, make sure there's a clause covering the schedule of your Raises and Promotions in your contract.
You want it to be clear, and in writing, how much and when you can expect to get Raises and Promotions.
Be smart and wise! Cut the very best deal you can going in the door. After that, anything else can be an "up hill" battle and you'll only "kick" yourself later because you didn't make a better deal when you had the best chance!
Ultimately - You do!
You decide what Raises and Promotions you get by everything you do every day in your workplace.
This includes your:
* Record of attendance and absences
* Actual work performance
* Overall attitude and approach
* Working relationships with co-workers, supervisors and customers
Don't take it personally if you don't always get the amount of raise you desire.
Most employers base the amount on how much business they did in the last six months or year. So these raises can vary from each review. They're not necessarily a reflection of your individual performance.
If you don't get a raise or a very good one, and it's because of your poor performance, you'll know it ...
And know that it's common policy for employers to always leave room for improvement.
If you don't get the promotion you want, more often than not, it has to do with the budget and overall planning of the entire company/business.
You can get a raise instead.
But if you really believe you haven't gotten the recognition and raise you believe you have earned, you can go to your immediate supervisor and talk with them.
Used in the right way, there are some things you can do to "help" your employer be more open to your desires.
Every employer knows that every other employer is always "on the lookout" for good employees.This works in your favor if, (and to what degree), you've done an all around good job in your current position.
Keep an an ear to the ground about what's happening outside of your place of work. Put in a few applications, send out a few resumes and see what happens. You never know ... Then you can drop a hint to co-workers and/or supervisors that you're getting calls from other employers.
It always pays to keep a few "irons in the fire", especially in the world of work. This can be used as "leverage", and if done right, it can create amazing results!
Top paid professionals in any field will tell you, (at least "off the record"), that this is one way to keep your professional edge as well as give you long and short-term options.
On the other hand - If not done right, an employer can belive you're trying to "hold a gun" to their head. In which case you can get fired ...
As any good magician knows - Use this "trick" with caution!
Decide what you desire from an employer. Decide if you believe it's possible to get it from this employer. If not - Think about getting a new employer.
