I'm interviewing with 4 companies and find it odd that only two of them brought up comp early in the process while the other two haven't asked once about my salary expectations even after multiple interviews. Is this pretty typical? I have been recruited to my last several roles and this is my first time ever interviewing with multiple companies at once.

Companies that aren’t upfront about pay are usually a red flag for me. Usually this is a conversation I have with the recruiter during the phone screening so that we’re both on the same page.

I think companies that don’t discuss it at the beginning probably know they aren’t competitive. Especially when they’re desperate to hire someone and they don’t want to lose good candidates early in the interview process who are turned off by the lower salary range.

I would’ve emailed the recruiter back and asked if they could provide more details about the role and compensation. I wouldn’t skip these discussions before going into the first interview. It could potentially lead to a complete waste of both your times.

Going forward, I would definitely ask about it in the first interview if they don’t bring it up. Why waste your time and the company’s time when there’s a chance you’re misaligned on salary expectations?

Even if the first interview isn't with a recruiter/HR and is with the hiring manager? I've always kept comp discussions with HR, and my company actually has hiring managers direct candidates to HR for comp questions during the hiring process.

If they haven't brought it up, they may be waiting to see if you do so they know how big of a priority it is to you. Let them know it is, and don't be afraid to lose an opportunity if it's not a good fit salary-wise! When you wait to discuss it, you're essentially giving them an opportunity to assess your worth rather than going into it confident of your worth.

Had the same experience. Skipped the screening and got first interview with team manager. Asked about the salary and been told to reach out to HR directly as he (the manager) not the one negotiating salaries. At the end of the day I asked here and got valid estimate even before HR replied:)

But overall agree with first response, if during your first intro conversation company is dodgy about compensations it’s a big red flag.
