Do you ask for the salary during the initial phone screening for a new role? I’ve heard mixed feelings about this and curious what folks think is appropriate.

It’s one of the very first questions I ask. Why would I waste everyone’s time when the salary is below my expectations

like

I usually start by asking if they can explain how the compensation is structured (for example, is it a base salary + bonus + stock). I’ll use this to frame it like I’m just interested in learning about the components that make up the compensation but not actually directly how much the role pays. Then it will typically lead to them giving a range.

Usually the recruiter will ask your expectations, and I usually just flip the question and ask them their tentative range

like

Yeah, and remember that it's an employee's market right now so use your leverage!

Yes, and if they aren't willing to at least tell me a range, at least for my current job role, it's usually because they are super low-ballers

I usually ask what is budgeted for the position. To give it a better frame for future conversations

Hey, I always do and I’m very honest with them as to why (not trying to waste my time or theirs).
I usually ask what the interview process looks like, how many rounds, is there a task. Things like that. Then after they answer I ask for salary range.

I usually hunt through a staffing firm. It is helpful because your recruiter can verify that bit for you so you don't have to navigate it yourself.

American employers think that people should just work for free😂
