How to negotiate salary when its set at a national level?
My salary and benefits package is set at a national level. How do I effectively negotiate for myself when my local contacts have no power in setting my compensation?
My local boss has agreed that a change needs to be made, has discussed on my behalf with our local senior leadership and president, all of whom agreed with the new offer (which was created without my input, so I have not idea what changes the offer included). When passed on to the national HR department, it was shot down. How do you handle negotiation when local boss and co president approve pay change, but it's denied by national HR department?
Do I try to move forward in pushing the subject, or is it time to jump ship and find a new opportunity?
I am seeking a part time Interior Design position but almost impossible to find unless it is full time. I am even willing to become a receptionist at a furniture store just to get my foot in the door. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I have had a shaky 3 to 4 years of work. My jobs have had lay offs and then I got into HR and went to another company for a director of management position. However it was a horrible company and I found another job in admissions, this was a step down but with better pay. However the hours are 9 to 6 and 11-8 on 2 days out of the week and some Saturdays. I have 3 children and my dad just had a stroke and will have to come live with me and I would need a job with better hours and great pay. I have my MBA but companies are not calling me back for interviews probably because I have job hopped. Any suggestions?
I have been working for three years in my current role and this is my first job after completing my STEM PhD. I work at a Big Oil company, but was just offered a job by a major chemical company and another big oil company. The jobs are nearly identical to my current one, but they are paying about $30,000 to $35,000 more than I make now (20% more than I make). While I am likely to take one of the roles, I wonder, am I being underpaid or are these offers higher to try and recruit me away from my current role?
I'm thinking about not coming back to work after my maternity leave -- even if I have to pay some of the pay I receive during leave. Nobody has asked me about whether I'm going to come back (they are just acting as if this will definitely happen when we talk about longer term projects) but I feel hugely guilty....and sometimes I think I should just quit now. Anyone been in this situation? any advice?
