Job Interview


Hi Everyone,
I'm in the social work field and work is often contract, casual, part time etc. therefore many of us have more than 1 job and often move around which means frequent job interviews. My question is do you ask what the pay is in the interview? Most pay along the same pay scale. Sometimes I'm conflicted as I don't want to get ahead of myself and come across like that's all that matters. Or maybe I'm overthinking? Quite often the interviewer asks if I have any questions and I think this is an opportunity to ask but I've also heard that you should wait for a job offer to discuss pay? Thanks for your opinions!

I have asked about pay on my job interview. If I was an interviewer, I would like my interviewee to ask about pay. Some interviewers tell u about the pay rate these days, well at least in my experience. I work in Food & beverage though.
I also know what to expect for pay rates as they are almost the same from one another.

All interviews are different and see how you feel about the interviewer.

I know what you mean, I am a community healt care worker, and see opportunities sometimes, but have been to interviews that went well, only to discover that the pay was significantly lower than I currently earn. I think it's fair to ask, if the interview is going well, what the pay "range" is for the position. Good luck, I finally secured a full time position, so glad the casual, and part time days are over.

I don't know about the social work field but in a lot of other fields it's the interviewer who asks the candidate what salary are they targeting (or hourly wage for contracts).

Thank you for your responses! I agree that having the interviewer explain the pay makes things so much easier. I've learned that if pay isn't discussed during the interview then it probably is below the scale and I most likely wouldn't take the job anyway. I like the idea of wording it as a pay range so I've decided that I will bring it up in the interview from now on!

in my experiences the employer presented the salary option, and then I negotiated. Sometimes salary wasn't discussed till second rounds

No - I leave that up to the company to bring up first. I mention it when they inquire about salary range.

It is very common when the interviewer asks about the expected salary. Also, I've been faced with the question "what do you hope to gain from this job experience". To be honest, I don't know what to answer and how to prepare for such kind of questions

Some interview questions make me feel confused. I agree that the question about salary and my expectations from this job is the most common. I think that the decision is to prepare at home for such questions. For instance, my friend sent me an article with sample answers for the question about job experience expectations. If you also want to read, you can click here. I'm sure that it will be useful. But I think that you have to ask about all worried questions and tell about all your expectations

I haven't found the right job for me yet

Hi. I haven't reached job interview level yet, because I haven't found the right job for me yet. Please tell me, how do you find good jobs with a decent salary level?

I was looking for a job in UAE

I think a great option for you might be to look for a job on layboard.in. Due to this online platform, I found my job and I'm very happy. The most important criterion for me to look for a job on this site was the fact that I was looking for a job in another country (as a foreigner). This is a very cool feature that most similar job search platforms don't have. Basically, they offer you local jobs, which wasn't cool for me. I was looking for a job in UAE while I was living in India and only due to layboard.in did I find what I wanted.
