Found 21st Nov 2010
going for a Jay I tomorrow (job interview), under wage it has "dependable on experience".

If we talk about the money, how do I respond if they ask either of the following questions

A) What type of wage/salary are you looking for

B) we offer a salary of £14k/£7ph do you have a problem with this?

It really depends on how important the money is right now, and also what prospects there are to earn more long term.

I can buy my own office fwiw, I mean to say they say were giving you 14k a year, is that a problem, If I wanted say 15k, how would I go about it?
DAMNOME

i should say the numbers in the OP have been fornicated, if I did put the real numbers in, this thread would just go way off topic.

A) depends on the job and how much you want the job - not sure it's a good time to be haggling tbh. You can always tell them what u earn now and explain you'd ideally want the same/higher.
and
B) opt for the £14k ph.
lol

How much is the going rate for a paper round these days?

Be honest if asked but try to not get into a discussion about money in the first interview if you can help it.

Interviewers shouldnt ask, but if they did would normally ask open rather than closed questions so shouldnt ask the B question.

So you'd replay, I would be aiming for a salary in the range of...

It depends on the importance of the job to you really... If 14k isn't enough for what you want then the problem is that it will be enough for someone else...
To me the most important part is getting in and impressing, then after 3 months you ask for a salary review.

you should see how similar jobs is paid then discuss if need to

mcdonalds probably don't care what experience you have, only question you'll probably get asked is:

do you know the difference between a cheese burger and chicken burger

Good luck with the interview

You'd get paid more if you offer "extras" (_;)

Yeah that might work but then you'd need to break out into 99 Problems and that all depends on whether or not your taking your boombox in with you.

You might want to fluff your answers a bit. Maybe mention similar market salaries in the same city. Show them you've researched the job market a bit.

Tell them you have an Aston Martin to run on their measly 14k ..(_;)

thats such an obvious reply, no one will find it even remotely amusing

the only person saying "a brother gotta eat, right?" will be the black dude who you hand a big mac to while you're livin the dream at mcdonalds

Just say "i easily make £140k a year, but i'm willing to work for you if you offer 15k instead of 14k AND a brother gotta eat right? "


If ^^^ doesn't work, nothing will.

raising purchase orders

what does this mean



buying/procuring goods & services most likely using a system like SAP.

Its kinda like buying something online lol. But you raise the PO your items are delivered or your services are received, and then you goods receipt your purchase order which then triggers to the accounts team who can then release payment for the items. At least thats how I use it in my job

If i was going for a job in another workplace - i would want a salary a little more than i was on at the time to entice me away from my current position. You gotta take in a few factors though -

where is new job?
is it further away or closer than your current job ( petrol costs outweighing the wage rise/fall )
do you really want to change jobs...

if it was a promotion in your current workplace are there others in that position? find out what they are on and ask for more - stating reasons ( experience )

I am at the minute applying for a new position in my workplace and awaiting my interview date - i know the current salary is around 3k more than what i am on right now - no harm in asking for a little more... !
