What's the point of giving a range for salary expectations? Won't they just leverage it in order to offer the lower end of the range?

What do you do if you were given a salary you asked for but low balled yourself a bit and want to negotiate up 5k? Is it weird? How do you justify?

For the execs on here: it costs 33% of a worker’s salary + the salary of a new employee to replace someone who leaves. Remember that the next time you decide not to give someone a 10% raise.

Would you take a pay cut for better work? Went on interview last week. Recruiter asked my salary range. I stated a range where the LOW was my current salary. Recruiter gasped...(Continued)

A little over a year ago, I posted about my boss making constant comments about my salary. Most comments said I must not have been performing well. I want to update that he was fired, not me.

I accepted an offer for 2.6x my salary and my current employer tried to offer me 1.4x more to stay. .4x more is a lot and I like my current employer, but I followed the money to support my family.

So I know layoffs suck. I’ve been laid off twice in two years (and I’m pretty good at my job!) But I want to say that each time, my next gig has netted me a 20%+ salary increase. So jokes on them! I start my new gig on next week, so fingers crossed I like it. Good luck to everyone starting over! You will succeed and know your worth!
