I'm looking to gage typical salary for my current position, I'll be asking for a raise next week and I know I am being grossly underpaid.

I'm a sales assistant working in retail manufacturing for a swimwear supplier based in NYC. I make 48k before tax, which I feel is extremely under-market value for this location.

Depends on what sales assistant is. But imo 48k for an full time job is underpaid.

In short- assisting a senior executive in the management of several private label fashion brands.

48k in NYC? Absolutely

Historically, fashion never pays well but for the year 2022 in the most expensive city in the country, this is unlivable. I have friends back in Florida who say 48k would even be impossible for them!

I’m salary 47k (just received 2k salary bonus lol) with commissions, but I’m remote. I also make commission as well, which puts me somewhere around 55-65k which I estimate

I'd definitely say you're being underpaid. Glassdoor has the average salary for your role at $68k TC (salary + bonus/commission/perks). I'd start looking if I were you.

That's too low. Considering it's NYC. You should be earning around $60-$70.

I am coming up on my one year review at my company where I had started last Nov. I am 30 years old and have about 12 years of work experience. I also have an MBA and make $60k per year. I spoke with a company regarding employment opportunities and they said that I am extremely underpaid by about $15k. I also have listened to my coworkers stating that their salary of $70k is too low, when they are a) 5-6 years younger than me and b) this is their first job. How do I negotiate for an increase?

I’m looking at a “Program Manager” role requesting 4 years of project management experience. In this bowl, people have said a “program” manager is not a “real” manager. Does that mean someone, like me, who graduated in 2017 and has been working in operations and project management roles since then would be a good fit? Or is it more senior than my experience? It sounds perfect for me but I’m worried about taking my shot at something and just getting tossed as a weak applicant. Should I wait?
