I recently spoke with a recruiter about a position I had previously interviewed and when I asked about Salary she let me know it was against their company policy to share a salary range and I had to tell them what my range was.. is this a thing I missed or was she lying?

That policy of theirs already speaks volumes about the kind of company it is.

Agreed

It is a game. Their goal in the 'game' is to find the minimum salary that you are willing to accept. If they tell you the range they are 'showing their hand' and asking you for your salary requirements is a way to see yours.

The way I go about this is to give them a low number, and then when I get the offer, ask for my actual asking.

You could ask for the approved budget for the role, which obviously was because they are looking to fill it.

It may not be a policy written in their official rule book, but I've seen recruiters say they get direction from upper management to not share salary ranges.

They usually give out the salary range, not sure which world that recruiter is from. It’s the first one I heard where it’s a secret

Depends on the state.

What state are you in?

hear hear. I recently applied to Accenture and the recruiter refused to tell me the salary range, AND the name of the company hiring (apparently Accenture was hiring on behalf of another company).

They are so worried you’ll go directly to the company or through another recruiting company. Young or inexperienced recruiters don’t realize that some of us who’ve been around the block, have certain companies we will and won’t work for.

This is a tough subject- but has anyone done selective reduction if they have more than one baby? I’m 12 weeks, twins. Also step mom to a 5 and 4 year old from my husbands previous marriage. His relationship with his ex is toxic at best. They do not get along and it’s hard to imagine them ever married. I did IUI to get pregnant and it worked- but I got 2 instead of 1. I’m scared shitless of trying to manage twins, along with his kids and his narcissistic ex. Selective reduction sucks (contd)

I was offered a Strategy Director role in NYC at $150k and I told them that I won't take less than $170k. I'm an African-American woman and I know holding companies are paying a premium for Black talent. Why offer me $150k as if I don't know the market and that you're hiring me in some manners for PR.I've been offered as much as $200K for healthcare Strategy Director roles, so $150k is a no go. Know your worth.
