I've been asked a lot lately, towards the end of the interview,- this just happened actually- what my salary range is/ I feel like, since I didn't get a formal offer I shouldn't have to answer that. I also feel that they should have been transparent about the salary up front.
Are their any labor or Hr related laws pertaining to that/ I just think, if I did a good job or they decide they like me, but then leaving that to the end lets them decide to rule me out as a candidate
I tried throwing the question back at my interviewer when she did this, but she wouldn't budge, so I ended up giving her a range, I told her this is what I'm expecting, based on my qualifications yeas of experience and going range for this position. But still, she didn't tell me the range. I don't think I should be expected to ask and be transparent if they won't be.
I heard it's better not to make a number until HR officially hires you. There is too much to this, so any advice? Please keep it respectful and remember that all have different opinion and experiences. I'm venting.
