What if the salary offered is lower than the one posted on the job ad?
At my 2nd interview they stated that the salary could be about $15/hr, i didn't take it as a salary offer at the moment, i was very nervous. When i got home and went over the job description list that they gave me, I noticed that the amount of responsibilities were more then my previous job, and i would be commuting between to different sites. They said that after my background check and calling my references if everything turns out okay, they will call me with an offer. I am concerned. When i did some research about the pay rate, people with about the same amount of experience are starting out at $18 - $20 per hour. On their job posting they were offering a range of $14 -$16.50. They have great benefits package tho. Am I still able to negotiate to $16.50 when they call me with an offer? If so, how to i go about negotiating? I have never negotiated a salary before, because i'm scared they will revoke the offer :( Any help will be greatly appreciated
