Should I get a raise with a promotion?
I have recently been promoted. I was an Admissions Coordinator for a Inpatient Hospice facility and now I am a Training Coordinator for our corporate company. Even though I've moved into an executive role, I didn't get a raise. I want to ask for one, as I think my pay is not sufficient for my new position. However, I have received two raises in less than a year; equaling a five dollar an hour raise from when I first began. They've been more than generous, and yet its really not equal to the type and amount of work I'm doing. I know I'm an asset. They done all sorts of things for me (even begged me to stay) when they thought I was going to leave a while back. Should I ask for a raise and if so how? I do have my bachelors. I've been here almost a 18 months. There are several procedures in the company I developed and there are several tasks and jobs that only I know how to do. This is why they promoted me. I'm the only person in the company who knows how to do every single clerical position; so I'm the only one who could train them all.

Do you have a degree? What leverage do you have over the company? How long have you been there? Do you feel your work deserves an increase in pay? Did they say it was a lateral move? If so, then no do not ask. It all depends on leverage. If you ever want to leave, let me know.
