Is it bad form / greedy to ask for $10 more an hour than what the hiring manager said was their hourly range?

My take is that’s a HUGE ask. As a hiring manager, you’re asking me for $20K more per year roughly. Can always ask, but be sure you can back it up with numbers or else you come off as greedy or only in it for the money

That’s a big gap. Even if you swing it and get it, you’re coming in at the top of the range — so merit increases are probably out of the picture until your next promotion. Ask yourself how long you are realistically willing to stay in that role at that salary.

They should never say their rate first. They should ask you. You don’t go to the shop, pick a product and tell the cashier you have X $ for it, do you? If they do it, best you do you say that it’s outside your range. If they ask what’s your rate, you are in control again. If they don’t - they will remember you as inaccessible, confident, expensive - that is: good.

I personally love telling them - ok that’s a bit low, but I am happy to do it, just 4 days a week.
