To be eligible for evaluation, an employee must have worked at least the last two months of the Quarter. If the job location you are hired for requires a higher starting rate than Amber’s normal starting base rate of $15.00 per hour, you will not receive a raise until the time you would have reached the higher rate under Amber’s quarterly evaluation process.
