I know the title may seem confusing, but I was hired to my current company out of college at a "post-college" rate for my job title (read: less then the minimum for what they pay). Ever since then, I've been behind the base-pay for my job title according to my company's salary calculator, with only this year catching up to what I should be paid minimum. I just learned of an upcoming promotion, and I'll probably hear the details about it in an hour or so. I'm afraid though that they will set my salary below the minimum again (it's only been 3 years since I graduated).
If this happens, should I bring up the salary calculator saying what my minimum should be? I love my job, and my bosses, I just want to be recognized and compensated AT LEAST what my title reflects, but I don't want to cause bad blood. I know I will negotiate my worth to the company first, but I just don't know if this should be in the conversation.
