I am supposed to interview tomorrow with a hiring manager for the job I applied last week. I was laid off today. If she asks for my salary expectation, how should I tackle it? I’m in desperate need of a job. Also, should I mention the lay off to the hiring manager?

I would ask for a competitive wage and wouldn’t mention it myself. Ask for what you deserve, don’t let this shake your confidence!

Do you have any data on what they pay from places like glassdooor or anecdotally?

They have mentioned a super wide range on the job description with a note saying as per experience compensation. Also, it’s an entry level position. I have around 7 years of experience now.

Don’t tell them. Don’t settle. You got this! 💫

Thank you! :)

Don’t tell. I did this once and they switched from a full time offer to a contract work.

Duly noted! Thank you!

Honestly just make sure you know the market. Also be flexible given your situation.

Personally I would not tell them I got laid off because then that give them more leverage for a shitty wage

Thank you!

If they ask you why are you leaving your job, what will you say?

yeah, hopefully, good luck with that

Hi! I need some help negotiating a raise. I have been working for this company for exactly 3 months now, but I was hired as an AGM. I'm not specific on what my responsibilities are as AGM.
However the GM at the time, quit 1 and a half months in. I was thrown into the role and have been handling it since.
My regional calls himself our GM but is never on site.
Was reluctant to cover my shifts when I became sick and requested time off for a few days. (4 days)
Any thoughts?

My company blames my generation for not being able to hire everyday. “You guys don’t want to work” coming from some overweight, racist, old coaster. I’ve barely taken any days off this year and pick up “skeleton crew” days any chance I get. I was able to work out a deal with my company before I came because of prior experience luckily, but they offer a terrible base salary and sham of a commission structure to new hires + no remote. Then sit here and can’t figure out why…
