I think I'm getting a raise

March 22nd, 2019 at 07:24 am

I love my job but sometimes they're a little weird, or at least a bit lacking in the communications department.

I got an email yesterday afternoon that they are issuing updated Employment Agreements. They attached my new contract for me to review, sign, and return.

1. I had no idea a new contract was coming.

2. I knew that our per diem pay rate had gone up so I wasn't surprised to see that in the new contract.

3. Our regular pay also went up and they added a "weekend premium" to the compensation. I have no idea what that is or how it was calculated.

4. I'm 99.9% sure that the numbers they sent me are for 40 hours/week but I work 36 hours/week so I need a new version that has my actual numbers.

I've emailed the corporate person who handles the contracts and my immediate supervisor asking for clarification on a few items so I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Bottom line, if I'm reading everything correctly (and it's accurate), even if I adjust to 90% of the numbers they sent me (36 hours vs 40), that would come out to an overall raise of about $15,800. But right now, I have no idea if that's accurate. I'll update when I know the answer.

    Would that be take home or gross?

    The $15,800 would be gross.

    I was expecting to hear back today but didn't. I'll reach out again on Monday. They want the signed contract back by 4/1 but obviously I'm not signing it until I know it's all correct and I understand the numbers.

    I'm still waiting on this. The person in charge is out with the flu.

    I did find out that the weekend premium is because our whole schedule template just changed and most people are going from working every other weekend to every third weekend. I am voluntarily staying on every other weekend so I'll be doing 9 weekends a year more than everyone else. The weekend premium is a bonus they're giving me for doing that.

    Still waiting on final confirmation and correct numbers for my actual hours though.
