My boss has always given me “automatic” raises usually between 6 months & a year. He hasn’t given me one for over a year so I’m thinking of asking for one when he comes in, within the next hour. How do I say it? Do I just ask “can I have a raise”? Or word it a different way? I’m so nervous :(. I’ve asked for raises before, but my mind is drawing a blank since I haven’t had to ask for one for at least 4 years.

i actually just did this the other day. i have taken on a lot of new responsibilities with no word from my supervisor. what i did was request some time to talk to him and the head of our department. i didn’t straight out ask for a raise, but what I did do was point out the new job responsibilities i have taken on and tell them that I would like to talk to reevaluate my current job title in the company. i made it more about reevalutating my current position together instead of just outright asking for a raise. i will be getting my official promotion and raise in june.
i think the best bet for you would be to compile a list of new duties or new responsibilities you have taken on, if any, and request time to speak with your supervisor about where you are at and if there’s any need for improvement and so on. if there isn’t, i think you should represent yourself and suggest a new position/compensation for then to think about. i know a lot of company reevaluate their budgets around june, so give them something to think about.
