HR phone interview question. I broke my own rule of salary talk.

totally agree on that grade/tier deal. internal company sites will give you that range, from the ones i have seen. outside maybe not.

 

it's quite the delicate tango when doing interviews.

I've just reached the conclusion that I am now going to be actively looking as well. When I asked for a bump they just stared at me and tried to down play what I've done the last 3 years.

They only way to go any higher where i amis to marry into the family that owns it and they are fresh out of suitors and I'm maxed out on earning potential as they don't want me making more than people that have been there 10 years.

So this horse will be looking for a new turnip cart to hitch on to. ..

panthro the irony for me is i have posted for at least 16 openings internally with no nibble. same exact resume but with a dif company i get a call back within in a week.

 

companies have so many silly unspoken rules/games they shoot themselves in the foot. now watch me land this job and then get calls from my former employer on what i have been trying to get. lol

Also, if the company is trapped by salary bands, there are other ways to increase the overall package. More holiday, company car, parking space, club memberships etc...One guy i know had his employer pay for a pretty high end golf membership. That's unusual but there are always tons of options.

Defidently better to get it out of the way. As has been said when you need to make 20k more than the position pays all parties have wasted there time.

I was in a final interview for a sweet medical equipment sales job...and I skirted around the money issue and totally lost out on the position bc i did not say I want that cash!!

I have noticed like Zod said...it is now commonplace to get your salary and in some cases if you made more they will thank you and move on to another canidate.

 

Sales is a tough business to be in, lot's of strange hours, missing family stuff, high stress, etc...

 

The only reason people do it is for the money.

 

You have to hit them between the eyes with your desire to make more than even you think that you are worth.

Gonna be in this same boat soon.

 

Have an interview with a company next week. The low end of the salary band is what I'm currently on. I don't know when to bring up cash money though, because obviously to move I want a pay rise.

did the face to face yesterday for 2 hrs with 3 dif people. the first mgr said the role you applied for i can tell based on talking to you and your background you would be bored. but this other consultant role I think you would love.

 

i'm gonna take that as a good sign. should find out next week. can be a game changer for the pstall clan if i land it.

 

 

drinks on me somewhere if it goes down baby.
