Jordan is meant to have a performance and salary review around June of each year - though, as is typical it didn't happen on time. As it turns out, Jordan made exactly the right call when decided to postpone pushing is manager to have the conversation with him.
The summer is a very busy time of year and this past was no different. By waiting, Jordan was able to ensure that his boss-man was in a positive state of mind, and not stressed from the hectic season. He took that extra time to make sure that he was performing at the top of his game and even took on extra responsibilities (that he wasn't advised of and expectations weren't clarified) without griping.
I'm so very pleased to share that Jordan received a 6.55% raise - he's now earning $55,000. From $51,400 it's an additional $3,600 gross annually - I've calculated a net pay increase of $86.39 every two weeks. On top of this, his employer is also looking at either paying 50% of his cell phone bill, or getting him a work phone. If they pay half the bill (our favorite option), that will work out to be about another $400/year.
Here's a picture of his five year pay history:
What an accomplishment! Over 5 years, he's increased his pay by $16,600 or $7.98/hour.
