Interview Questions: What Are Your Salary Expectations?

Other forms of this question:

· What did you earn in your previous position?

· How much do you expect to make here?

· The hourly wage for this position is $X.XX – is that acceptable?

When it’s asked: At the end of the interview or during the job offer.

Why it’s asked: Hiring managers ask this question for two reasons. The main thing they want to know is whether your expectations are in line with what they are able to pay. If you’re looking for $20 per hour and they’re paying $8, it would be a waste of their time (and yours) to proceed with the interview process.

However, they may also be trying to find out how much you value your work. If you say you’re only looking to make $8 per hour and they can pay up to $10, they’re probably going to offer you $8.

How you shouldn’t answer: “I need at least $15 an hour to make my car payment… but $25 would be nice.” You need to have realistic expectations of wages for positions, so don’t just blurt out some crazy dream number. Also, always, always, always wait until you are asked – don’t be the one to bring it up. They know you want to know, and pay negotiations are an important part of the hiring process, but asking too early gives the impression that you only care about the money.

How you should answer: You can figure out what’s realistic by researching job descriptions online or consulting a salary calculator.
