Your raise is probably on your paycheck. Depending on the amount you may not have noticed. Those that got .5% only got a few pennies, which is disgraceful and Target should be ashamed.
Anywho, very easy not to notice. You don't have to get the review to get the raise on your paycheck, but the review is nice so that you can understand what you're doing right vs. what you need to improve on. For those that got a .5% and didn't understand why... if I thought they deserved more and had no clue why they got the shaft, I sent them to the ETL or SD.
