Could we have a chat when it’s convenient for you?
Sure,you can drop by my office in half an hour.
May I come in?
Yes, what do you want to talk about?
Could we possibly discuss my salary?
Sure, go ahead. What’s on your mind?
First of all, I want you to know that I’m really enjoying working for our company. What do you think of my job here?
Well, you are doing an excellent job.
Thank you. I’m working hard everyday. I’d like to talk about my prospects and see if there’s the chance of receiving a raise.
Well, you deserve more, but if I give you a raise, then everyone in your department should also get one. That’s too much.
I understand your concerns.
Could you consider other benefits the company may find easier to accommodate, more paid holidays, for example?
Ok, thank you for offering that.
