I know you are not supposed to ask about pay and benefits for a job while in an interview. It's rude and forward and will give off a wrong vibe. When is the best time to ask about it though? Nine times out of ten, the interviewer does not mention it in the first meeting. A lot of times for me, it's not mentioned at the second meeting or phone call either. This is important information to know! I don't want to be impolite or brash. When is the appropriate time to bring it up?!
