Got my first salary job, but the check is lower than I calculated. I only had a week under my belt before my first paycheck, but I thought salary would mean it would still be a full paycheck? Is your first check usually prorated for how long you’ve been there?

Yes, it is prorated if you start mid pay cycle.

Thank you haha

Yes, it was prorated because I was able to start midway before the cut-off of the pay cycle. Of course I will only get paid for what I have worked for so far.

It's still only going to reflect the days you actually worked during that pay period. The main thing that's different about salary vs. hourly is that you're not punching a clock, so if you come in late or leave early, you'll still get paid. Of course, if you work late, you won't get any extra, so there's a trade-off.

You did get a full paycheck….for the time you worked.
