  • 15.8% - I'm unemployed, so definitely. 305

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

I supposed to be getting a brand new company car soon. it's great and worth a ton of money, especially considering how few hours I work. but I'd rather ride my bike and get an equivalent raise.

Followup question for those who answered Yes: Are you going to ask for one?

I have my own business so the only one who would give me a raise is me and I give myself one when I want one :D

We definitely need a "Yes, because no one has figured out how little I actually do around here!" option.

Asked for one last week. Should find out very soon whether or not they will simply laugh in my face.

Just realized last night that I haven't gotten a raise since I first started working here almost 2 years ago. Although, I have gotten a couple of bonuses so far this year. Things have been so slow at my office, though, I'm really happy to just have a job and I'm thankful for it.

*I* have FIVE Quality Posts! no, seriously...how did that happen?!

My raise was supposed to go through in April. it still hasn't. Our HR person is so incompetent the CEO is frequently involved in minor HR related queries. One time, she forgot about our entire east-coast operation, removing our access to health insurance.
