I always go the "easy-direct-to-the-point" way. 

 

Hey Owner/Boss/Manager/Person who signs the checks ... I've been here a year, I've improved things. things are going good ... How about a little pay bump, you know, for the effort?

I agree with that approach.

 

I work in a private club, but I was promoted from Garde Manger, to the grill station where I worked for 14 months, took over for a guy who couldn't handle the station, and turned it completely around.

 

I knew I was underpaid, not only on the position, but underpaid in general at the time, so I went to the Executive Chef and GM and had a meeting and put it all on the table. I walked out with a 17% raise.

 

Don't beat around the bush, if they say no, open your options if necessary. You always should do what's best for number one.
