Hello there,

I have already work with the same company for 3 years and I never had a basic salary increment. For your information, I am a Bookstore Manager, I have been working here since day one the shop open. Because we don't have enough employee, I do also the ground work such as cleaning, etc.

The bookshop is a sub-company to a Orthopedic Specialist Consultant, the main company have been making money millions with a minimal cost.

I love to continue working with them, but it seems i can't stand with the treatment as a employee here. Last 2 years I've been working for 4 extra hours without any extra pay. They said that because of my basic salary is high (according to them) I'm not eligible to get overtime pay.

The third year I told my boss that I cannot work extra hours anymore and tell her I want to do part time job elsewhere, then they decide to give me overtime pay.

I rarely take annual leave, medical sick leave, because i don't afford to do so, we are short of staff, they really depending on me. I also handle the cash money. They don't have people that they can rely on.

Now I started to feel exhausted, I just need at least a appreciation bonus or salary increment. How can I tell them about it?

Basic Salary : RM1,800.00 = USD 529.00

Fix Allowance: RM 300.00 = USD 88.00

They do give me bonus but it's only 1 month for the past 2 years.

I just need more.! Please advice on how to tell the company how frustrated am I with their decision. The worst scenario is both of the director it's my Uncle and Auntie. Please help me to decide whether to continue to move on with other company or maintain with them?

Please advice..!

Thank you in advance!

you should move out the company
because if you stay here for more time they will use you without any increment or wrong way.
so search another job without living that company when you will get you should left the job immediately.

Hi!
Your situation is not good. I don't agree that you should move out immediately. Let's see other options.
1. Have a straight talk with the Management about the salary you expect. "Quote the figure". Because if you again leave the figure on them than you will never be satisfied. Also when you go to talk to them carry a written report on the job/jobs you are doing and what is your officially designated profile. This will tell them how much hard work you are doing. You can also carry a statement of the leaves availed. As you are saying you hardly take leaves. I hope this will help.
2. Find out in the market what other jobs are available for you and how much market potential you have in terms of salary.
3. If at all you have to quit then better get a job before quitting.
I hope this helps.
All the Best!!
