What are some good questions to ask in a screener interview for in-house positions? Are salary/benefits questions appropriate at this stage?

Asking for comp at this stage is acceptable because it could potentially save a lot of time if you wouldn’t accept the pay. However, if it’s a desirable role and you sense the in house recruiter is cagey, reserve these questions for a later stage in the interview.

They’ll typically bring up comp during this stage. Ask why they’re hiring and who you’d be working under.

I almost always ask for compensation range before I will even agree to a screener interview. If they are way off, I don’t want to waste my time or their time. I think it is definitely okay / expected to ask at this stage.

Ask why there’s a vacancy

That’s one of my questions I always asked: is this a replacement position or an expansion position. If it’s a replacement I ask why they left.

Hey everyone! Second year Deloitte analyst and I’ve been interviewing elsewhere, like many others. Just got told from the recruiter that I will be getting an offer from Apple as a Program Manager in San Jose (big jump lol). Right now I’m living in a MCOL city working remote, but I would need to move for this role (eventually lol). Any ideas on comp, living costs, etc. would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never been out to San Jose or San Francisco, so I’d appreciate any advice or DMs of any sort! Deloitte

Hi everyone. I interviewed for a sales role at Amazon. I was told the role was an L6 and I can stay based in Chicago. Well, the recruiter emailed me today saying the hiring team felt I was better suited for an L5 role (estimated total comp is $140K-$150K) and I would have to move to Seattle. They'll send me an offer if that works. Any advice or opinions on how to negotiate? For context, I gave a desired salary range of $280K-$310K since this was an L6 role, and my current TC at P&G is $200K.

For those of you who left big 4 for industry - I’m seeing a lot of people saying they got 30% + raises when leaving. How did you find these jobs willing to pay that much more? Looking to leave at the M1 level and having trouble finding anything with much more than a 10-15% increase in base comp. from my current salary. Would it be dumb to leave for that low of a percentage increase? Some are offering equity in addition to the base comp. but hard to put a specific value to that now.
