View Full Version : Salary negotiation

25-07-2012, 03:07 AM
Does anyone have any do's and dont's? I have been told that I am a shoe-in for a job but it is hourly and doesn't offer benefits. However, the person who would be my manager and interviewed me told me to negotiate. She said that about 3 times but not to mention that to anyone else. Just trying to figure out how to do this properly as I haven't ever really done this....

I seriously have no clue, but I wanted to offer my "good luck" and support. You are worth every penny! :D

Sorry! :sorry:

I'm clueless about hourly jobs. If you get any good tips however, post them up here. Never know who it might help. :yes:

Tom (:macwave:... good luck!)

Thank you Dr. Ducky :-) I've figured out what I need. So I'm going to ask for more and then negotiate down. I'm currently salaried but I work way more than 40 hours a week with no extra compensation.

Take your current salary as a starting point, then estimate the cost to you for health benefits etc. break that into an hourly rate and then add 10-20% as a starting point.
