Recruiter told me $120k + bonus. Went through the interviews. $75k offer. I’m about to take it just to not show up and have them pay me until they fire me. Waste my time I’ll waste yours.

NGL, I kinda love this. What would you with your current job tho? Stay employed and keep looking?

When I was on my way out of public, I was given an impossible task with multiple touchpoints a week (for about 4 weeks). I expressed the difficulty and couldnt get my questions answered. Didnt really have to show my progress, just vocalized what I was doing. So i would move my mouse occasionally until around 1 - 3, then go to the pool or the park with my kids, come home and sign off 7 - 8. Last touchpoint was embarrassing because I had nothing done but whatever. Close to a 4 week paid vacation.

Maybe the offer is a typo and it’s 175k?

funnylike

Paying me $175k for this role is more ridiculous than offering me $75k tbh 🤣

I hope that recruiter is not on fishbowl. But yes, do it.

Negotiate up and just use it as practice for future negotiations. The time invested interviewing is already lost so might aswell… i know it’s insulting but atleast this way you get something out of it

Guess you gotta keep hardballing! Be sure to throw the $125k number and the recruiter under the bus on your way out.

“Thanks for the consideration however at the beginning of the process it was made clear by the recruiter that the position had a range of $115-$130k. With the final offer unable to to even reach 70% of the range, I am unable to move forward.”

This happened to my husband. The recruiter was having a hard time getting applicants so he put the pay range. My husband interviewed and the company offered him $50k less and when confronted, they said it's because of his lack of experience. He declined the offer and told the recruiter never to contact him again.

That’s a huge miss. You should bring it up now. You may lose the offer, but if they’re 40+% lighter than what the recruiter said you’re entitled to squawk a bit.

The reduction might be because you went through third party. They take a cut. Sometimes it’s not permanent, you might be eligible for that salary after a year etc of time at the company.
