I am currently interviewing for Company
A. However, I already have an offer from Company
A would be my ideal place to work (so much so that I told
B I need more time to decide on the offer), but are quite selective, making me feel lucky to already be here.
A is, however, notorious for asking about other offers. I have told them that I do have another offer. I would like to not divulge the position or the pay the offer is for.
I know it's common to give pay details, but both pay well enough (I need enough money to live, not to become Scrooge McDuck). Given what I know about
A pay range, it's above
B's pay range (
A actually pays well above market rate). However, I would be fine if
A underpaid me (either in comparison to other's in the company or in comparison to
B's offer) as it is above what I need, although I wouldn't want to artificially depress my pay by telling them this.
How would I politely refuse telling them the pay of the other offer, the position of the other offer, or what I've been payed in the past if asked?
