This question already has an answer here:
When my boss left, I interviewed for the position and I got it. However, because I didn't have a degree I was offered a lower position for less pay. I was told that once I got my degree my position and pay would increase. A couple of months ago, I had a conversation with the HR lady and asked how things would be after I got my degree. She basically told me things didn't work like that. I recall the GM mentioned on another occasion that he would provide a raise to anyone that advanced their education or career. I graduated in June and it so happens that everyone also got a merit increase in June. I got clarification from HR that my merit increase was not based on receiving my degree. It was based on my last years appraisal. So my questions is with having just received a merit increase, should I still discuss the possibility of an increase because of my degree?
