I was made redundant some time ago, and I had a hard time finding work. During that 3 month gap, I was offered a job at 8k p.a. less than my previous role, but something is better than nothing. The recruiter made my manager aware of it, and my manager told me that after probation my pay would be boosted to match my previous role's salary if I was good.
One month later COVID-19 hit, and we were all remote. No 1-on-1 meetings, no chats, or follow ups. This post resonates with me, but despite me raising this issue, it has fallen upon deaf ears. I called the recruiter and he said that it's all on me, but hasn't heard any negative feedback.
We're currently in the final stretch before launching the product, and I'm concerned about the pay match. My salary currently doesn't cover my expenses, and my family depends on me for that.
How, and when, should I bring this up with my manager? COVID-19 has disrupted the financial sector, and I don't want to sound greedy as it might impact my review.
I'm looking for an answer because if things aren't looking good, I want to start looking elsewhere.
