could you tell me your opinion.
I was approached by HR from a different company who asked me some questions and suggested +10K for what I told him my salary is. We met with him and 2 times with hiring company. It turned out that they decided to employ 2 persons instead of initial plan. I am the second one. They came back and gave me an offer for -20K to what we agreed but suggested a car allowance instead of a company provided car (which gives me about +10K after car expenses). I said "it all good but your movement of -20K is very significant" can you make it probation only and increase after that. They said "ok", we give you another 5 grands if you pass probation.
So, if we forget about car allowance isn't is a too dramatic drop from initially discussed salary? If i agree to it now, would that be strange?
HR said, it was his mistake and he was not aware about company salary boundaries. He also assured me that another person gets 10K less. Problem is that I know this other guy and his salary later was higher than mine. So, I m not inclined to trust this HR.
Long story :)
Ok may be I have to clarify. My salary now is 83K + company provided car. HR offered 110K + company provided car. The best offer they have now is 95K after probation + 18K as car allowance. Which gives me (95+18-car expenses)=106 approximately. So from where I m now with my little 83K it is not bad. Taking into account that I m not well paid now. I from australia by the way. Our 83K are equal to 59K USD $.
