You can use the “I am coming up to a year here and wanted to touch base” angle.

If they are less than receptive, or wishy-washy with respect to your growth path, then when you leave it won’t be a surprise.
That's a good idea. I'll try that when it gets slightly closer to my 1-year

The one who I would bring this up to would be my manager, and he was on the call and he knows that I know about the raise

I wonder what she tells other people about you.
And the worst part is that the HR Director is NEW. She started a month ago. Which is why If ind it really odd that she is already blabbing about other employees' raises.

But there was a 'new hire' back in January who just graduated college in 2018. She didn't have any experience in her position now, so she is pretty junior. When hiring her, the hiring took a bit longer than expected so they threw an extra 10k on her salary because they 'felt bad'.

Just found out from the Director of HR that she will be receiving a raise for all the help that she has brought the company. Which is fine, but I know she isn't doing more work than I am.

Now I feel like I am putting in all of this extra work and time (9+ hour days/working when I get home) for nothing.

Am I wrong to feel a little jilted by this? Makes me now only want to do the bare minimum and not go the extra mile, since it's apparent that I am not valued here.

I am moving back to the west coast in the fall, so I'd just like to ride this job out so I am here for a year.
I understand exactly how you feel. At my work, they hired a brand new kid who knows nothing, and they have given him more hours per week than the rest of us who have been there for years. I exploded, left that place, and have moved to another job because of it.

Companies have no loyalty anymore and do some really stupid stuff. They expect loyalty from you, but do not give it back, and they wonder why employees are indifferent any more.

If you’re there 10 months it’s a good time now to set it up. Assuming it takes a couple of weeks before you actually meet you want time before a “formal review” to internalize what was said.

But again, DO NOT mention anyone else’s salary or raise. This is about you and the value YOU bring. I’m sure as a recruiter you know what your market rate is...

Was she the one who gave the raise, or facilitated it? Maybe she feels like she accomplished something “good” in her first few weeks.

if you're in a contracting company, it's possible that you are overhead and her salary is getting paid by the contracts she's working on. In other words, it's no skin off their nose to give her more, especially if the client is super happy with her.

Nope. She had nothing to do with it. She doesn't have anything to do with raises or compensation

She isn't on one of the contracts. She technically works for the company, not a contracted-employee

Why is the HR director discussing another employee's salary and performance with you?
