I have a job offer that states what the annual salary would be. I have only had jobs where I've been paid per hour. In the interview there was some discussion about pay and I gave a pay range I was looking for but stated it in hours. The offer seems a little bit low (taking into account things like benefits).
I have used various tools on the internet to convert between hourly pay and annual pay. They all give slightly different numbers depending on if I work 37-40 hour weeks. When I asked what the work hours were they just said "typical 8 hour days". So does this mean 40 payable hours per week? Does it make a difference if my meal breaks are paid or unpaid? In my experience "8 hours days" include a 30 minute meal break but I'm not sure about about other (15 minute) breaks. I would be working from home. Where I live an employer has to pay for a 30 minute meal break but the company is located in a different province where meal breaks can be unpaid.
