Really depends on where you live (Big City, Small Town) and what benefits they offer (Medical, 401k, etc) may be OK, may be terrible.

Hourly rate is a confusing way to look at this but if you have 10 years of experience, I would expect at least double $50+. By all means, you save money taking the job, well then you’re coming out on top. Also global retail could mean anything, something like a fashion brand will pay very different than something like a branding agency.

Rough pay bands
(for most agencies/HCL cities like LA/NYC)

Junior 55-75k
Mid 85-95k
Senior 100-135k

Obviously some outliers here and there but this is what I’ve gathered from research over the years. Before benefits btw. YMMV.

I used to work at a fashion brand. Don’t get distracted by the shininess of global recognition. It all depends on the role itself and the access to projects you have. What is your next step in your career? What does that mean to you? We can discuss deeper if you want to DM.

Need some outside opinions - I’m on round 5 (final round is the 6th…) in an interview process and while the company has a good reputation and the role description is aligned with what I want, I have an uneasy feeling about the team. I feel like they are desperate to fill the role and have hinted that they have a ‘work hard’ environment. I’m not sure if I’m reading too much into it, but they seemed tired during the interviews and hardly cracked a smile.
