Anyone else hear the rumor that retail employees won’t be getting commission starting in 2020. Heard they’re just paying hourly.

What’s an estimated percentage raise for someone getting promoted from band 7 to 6 Individual Contributor?
Now shows .25 for January-Feb. About a 5% increase in lump sum.
I tore my cuff a couple months ago, on std. Does being on std freeze the rate your at from that point. Thinking about leaving and other people seem to show their increase as of last week, I don't see any, except on " projection" for February. Off... — read more
