I started my current job around 5 months ago and my probationary is due to end in a few days. I have a review scheduled with my boss once it's complete.
Would this be a good time to put myself forward for extra work? I could do with the money. I'm thinking if I were to occasionally work a 6 day week that would boost my finances, and also help take some of the workload off some of my peers.
One of my colleagues has recently left, I'm currently unsure whether she'll be getting replaced.
It is only a small company so I feel it could benefit my boss if I were to work the occasional extra day, as it might reduce the need to be hiring extra staff.
I know that my company does pay for overtime, but I've not heard of anyone willing to regularly working an extra day by default.
Might I be best waiting longer? Or just not mention it at all?
