Heard that in the past once you reached 3 years at Shell, out of university, they would give you a pay bump? Is that still the case now?

G grade is equivalent to JG6, you should have had large raises your first 3 years so that you move to the bottom of JG5 range in your 3rd year. That’s why grads were exempt from the covid no raise freeze
@fkgk+1jf1CNur So when you pass the SGP and get this JG-5 designation does your compensation then get bumped up? or do u have to move into an official JG5 role?
couldn't scenarios like re-shape really f**k your progression then if you aren't placed into a JG-5 role even though in normal times you would have?
Was this always the case?? i've heard of older employees getting automatic pay bumps at year 3. If this is some new policy they implemented, how do they expect to keep anyone around the year 3 mark ?? especially with 3-4 year being the start of experienced/requirements on a lot of job postings
No they do not give pay bump at 3 year for G grades unless you’re counting your yearly pay raises but G grades receive raises every year based on “performance” just like everyone else.
Most SGP have a 3 year completion requirement where at the completion (after passing an assessed interview or some kind of assessment or both) you go from G grade to grade 5 and can post on jobs without HR flagging you and emailing your line manager asking them “why a G grade applied for a job”.
When I was at Shell I felt like SGP was really just there to slow down my career growth. Other than a select few SGP, like wells, most of the other ones are check the box activities and some are just complete waste of time.
Is it really taking 7 years for a 5 to 4 progression these days? It took me a little under 5 years…
If you get hired with a PhD as a JG5 you can look forward to 7 years before you ever get a promotion.
After three years, you move from G-grade to JG5. But I think US G-grades are already paid based on JG5 scale. If your salary is <80% of JG5, expect to get bumped to above 80%. If already above 80% PIR, I wouldn’t expect anything more than normal cycle.
