Shamed for not providing salary range in phone screen
I was asked for a salary range by a large corporate recruiter during a phone screen. When I declined to give #s to her (I stated I would be looking for market rate) she was stunned then tried to shame me into giving her #s, saying never in her xx recruiting years has anyone ever refused to answer the question. Keep in mind, this was a 20-minute conversation and very light on details from her side about the role. Are people really that careless to announce a # and possibly leave $ on the table in future rounds of the interview process? To be frank, this was a company I was introduced to through a FBG career fair a few weeks ago!
