Pay scale/advancement

Pay scale/advancement
« on: December 16, 2017, 07:10:AM »
My plant is looking to adopt a new pay scale and raise/advancement program. Management is pushing a skill tree type of system where we would accrue raises by completing proficiency in various areas of the plant. This would be very tedious and take a long time to build a comprehensive list, come up with testing and implementation, and build in options for when we expand processes.
My question is this: how is it handled at your plants?
Thank you for any feedback.

I've only worked in a few plants across my entire career and the pay scales were never advanced fairly. What you usually see is the simple percent/year style increases. I worked one place that only raised wages every 2nd year and then they claimed they were giving us a double sized raise so it only had to to be given biannually. This, of course, was a joke. If your plant has any kind of merit based increases your most likely better off.
