So I was laid off in April. I've been searching and I have to say, this job market has been strange.

I interviewed with a company yesterday and was so excited but then she drops on me the base is $30-40k (huh?) with an OTE of $120k (that's better but still the base) and here's the kicker - it's a 1099 for the first 3 months then you can chose to switch to a W2 employee. Also they have 100 employees but don't offer benefits??? Is that even legal? Any insight into what is going on here?

Thanks!

I would definitely not take this role - some big red flags there and sounds like it's not very stable in terms of income. They're relying a ton on you making above your number & that base is incredibly low. How many people are on the team? And how many are ACTUALLY hitting quota?

Tbh, I would skip this role. There's better stuff out there that offers a lot more stability & better pay.

I agree but I thought it was just a strange situation but then came across an ad with similar terms and wondered if this is a new trend.

I work at st Christopher’s hospital for children in Philadelphia PA. And RD starting salary is $61,000.

The hospital also did not give the clinical nutrition department a bonus because we aren’t considered direct patient care?? We are 100% direct patient care on the floors and every unit. Thoughts on this for any fellow RDs?
