So in the middle of a salary negotiation and the employer switches up. First the role was perm now all of a sudden it to changed to temp to hire after I didn't accept the offer and asked for a higher sign on and base. They are proposing 3 months temp and then they will consider perm. Before I respond, I wanted to your thoughts.

Let them know that you’re thankful for their consideration but you’re not looking for a temp role at this time. If their position changes, they can let you know as you remain super interested in the company and position. Not starting on a good foot if they’re letting you know they want a trial period. Either in or out, not both.

Exactly. I agree and this is definitely what I was leaning towards. If you had the confidence to originally select me and provide an offer for an original perm position why switch up just because I asked for more $

That would be a major red flag for me. It could also lead to having to go through another round of interviews way too soon and out of absolute necessity. the entire thing seems like it could lead to stress and inconvenience.

I wouldn't take it to be honest. They already switched up once and they're probably going to switch up again

It's a power play. Don't fall for it. They'll probably try to talk your salary down after the 3 months

Thanks. It definitely seems like more of a strategy than trial.

Sounds like maybe they want to see if you are worth paying more money for. I woudn't sweat it unless you need something more permanent and can't wait to see what happens.

No I'm ok with temp but it's weird they switched after I wouldn't accept the low salary they offered. It's a flag for me but not a deal breaker.

Seems like they want to keep looking for cheaper but need some one in ASAP. Companies can technically dismiss you within the first couple of years without any real reason (if your costing them more than they make).

It feels like it will leave you in a state of anger and stress.

Depending on the size of the company- I have always been under estimated.

And I would take very good notes on the actions that you have taken that has created value to your company- then ask for a sit down. And state your case.

And of course keep looking for the next.

Originally interviewed for Community Relations Coordinator for set asking salary of $65k. Now owner wants to change title to Branch Manager, increased responsibilities, but primarily still CRC role.

At this point, I need the income and am not planning on staying longer than the year, if that. Is it worth negotiating? Any advice welcome.
