    Thinking about resigning

    I haven't been on this forum for a while but today I went back because I badly need an advice...


    We have a probationary period of 6 months and before our contract signing, the HR told me our salary will increase once we pass the evaluation for regularization.

    Now that it's my 6th month, HR just told me I pass as a regular employee but my salary will NOT increase. It will be the same. The reason is that my boss isn't satisfied with the time and he wants to extend his evaluation to me. I asked the HR when will I get my actual salary increase and she told me it will be based on my annual evaluation performance which is on June. I got so bummed out and I found it unfair that all my co-workers who are also newbies like me got their salaries increase while I didn't.

    Then I asked the HR where is my job description on the agreement paper for regularization and she told me I don't have one (really???) because my co-worker is gonna have a maternity leave on August and all her job will go to me so they can't provide me a JD. What's worse is that my salary will most likely won't increase.

    It bums me out I know for myself I did everything and worked so hard to get my salary increase. I was never late to my work and I did everything my boss ask me to do. There are times his tasks piss me off because the tasks he would ask me to do are personal matters like reservation of his meeting with a car company regarding with his son's car or making me do things that wasn't on my job offer.

    Basically I got no raise, my job is getting heavier each day due to my co-worker who is gonna leave for pregnancy in a few months, I got no health benefits, and everything is just a complete mess for me.

    I didn't sign the agreement paper yet and I told the HR I will think about it and give my answer within this week. Some told me to sign and stay there until I get a new job. I have to render for 30 days upon my resignation according to the company's rules if I wanna resign.

    So I'm thinking about staying until I find a new job or just discontinue the contract and focus on looking another job.

    It's easier to find a job while you have a job.

    So, do you need a job to survive or are all of your expenses paid and you need no money to live?

    Have you spoken at length with your boss about your performance? I don't doubt that you did everything he asked but he might have sensed some push back from you and is unsure about your willingness in some tasks. It doesn't sound like a good company if you can't get a straight answer. Refrain from gossip or speaking with your colleagues about the raise vs no raise. The person you should be speaking to is your boss and asking him what you might have missed in the six months or if there were any events or projects where you could have improved on. HR is just the spokesperson/paper pusher. Get the answers from your boss.

    Your ego and confidence is bruised. Recognize that and then start remedying the issue without getting emotional about the raise vs no raise. At the very least, you should have answers (even answers you may not agree with). When you speak with your boss make sure you're a bit more neutral than your post above. You're new. It means nothing to them if you leave and you are easily replaceable. It means your pay cheque to you if you have to be escorted out or are let go abruptly. You also need some amicability between yourself and your coworkers before you leave if you are biding your time looking for another job. Think clearly and start working systematically.

    I live with my family so I don't need any expenses to pay. I'm working to earn for mt future business and learn more skills.

    Only the HR told me about my performance. My boss only said few things which are I'm hardworking and I'm getting familiar with some things. My problem is I still need some supervision.

    I'm thinking about talking to him regarding my salary but honestly I lost all my motivation to work and I wanna quit. HR told me my boss dislikes talking to his employee directly regarding performances (btw he is the CEO of the company).

    I also heard the employees before me who were 4 of them within the span of 2 years all left the company due to rumours how he didn't raise their salaries, extended contracts etc.

    Even then though, co-workers told me their salary increase is really LOW. I find it hard to motivate myself and go back to work after everything today.

    I also have to add I'm the only probationaty employee who didn't get a salary increase. That's when I started to get upset and realized all of them have a systematic job description while mine didn't that's why I performed poorly, because he keeps giving me new tasks that aren't on my job offer and I'm unfamiliar with.

    If there is nothing in writing, or in your contract, stating your salary will increase once probationary period is over, I'm sorry you don't have a leg to stand on.

    Lesson learned to always get statements like this in writing. Even in an email would suffice.

    If not happy, then start looking for another job, don't resign until you find one.

    Make sure everything discussed prior to job starting is in writing!!!

    My suspicion is he sensed your attitude when he asked you to do personal tasks. Please consider an attitude adjustment on that -be a team player - I've been an employee, a manager, everything in between and have a grad degree and nothing is beneath me. Two weeks ago I asked my boss if I could get her lunch for her because we were working on something and she realized she'd better go to the cafeteria before it closed. We were both tired and stressed. Had she asked me to get her lunch it would have been my honor to do so. No it's not in my job description and not even close. But to me the best managers and employees roll up their sleeves and do what it takes to get the job done whether in their job description or not. No matter what the salary. I'm really sorry you're not getting an increase and I would stay for sure until you have another job.

    Then prove it to them. Accept the extended evaluation and do an amazing job. Look for another job in the meantime if you want, but have you ever entertained the concept of rising to the occasion? i remember your other posts - you make random careless mistakes and you frequently feel "put out" by other people. Give this your absolute 100% best shot and IMPROVE. keep the job and get the money - if you decide to look for another job after that, fine, while you have a job, but stop job hopping. The problem with your job is that you won't apply yourself and try to do your best

    What I'm picking up on is that the company is not confident in your skills or ability or even attitude to carry out your job after all this time. By your own admission, you still need supervision. Instead of letting you go, they are extending your trial period so to speak and giving you a chance to catch up and get more on board. No doubt this stings, but it would seem that the way that you perceive your job performance doesn't match the way the company sees it.

    Given the above, I doubt they are too concerned about you choosing to leave. They are actually being quite nice to you in terms of not just letting you go and leaving you without a paycheck cold.
