Raises depend greatly on 3 factors, in my experience.
(1) What position and salary level are you currently working?
(2) What is your attendance record like?
(3) How long have you worked with a spotless record?
For example, an entry level employee with good attendance and no complaints might see a raise in 6 months to a year, unless the company offers a "cost of living" raise, then that's it.
If an Executive supervisor with Supply Chain has been in the company 15 years without a single late or sick day - a raise is more likely in the form of a big bonus check, provided that there are zero reported LOPC's or injuries in that department that year.
