interviewer wants to know my current salary (with an update already included!)
Ask a Manager
DECEMBER 9, 2019
In September I received this letter: I’ve interviewed with a great company that I am very interested in. At my first phone interview, they told me the salary range — about 30%-50% above what I’m paid now. I knew my salary at my current company was low, and so I was very excited to talk to a company that wasn’t asking my current salary. Today, they asked for my “current compensation and bonus payout history.
