Employers avoid telling you what they pay in ads
« on: September 07, 2013, 07:00:37 PM »
  

I live in the USA but this may apply in the UK too. Why don't employers in ads tell you what they pay in job search boards? I always see a mile long list of what they expect of you, but they never tell what they pay, which certainly helps in deciding whether or not to even apply, leading to a lot of wasted time, email tag and phone calls when you find out that job that required a college degree and demands a ton of duties and responsibilities pays only $9 and hour with no benefits. If they really want to attract the best employees I would think that they should show that they have something to offer besides working you to death!

I agree with this. Ive even see employers advertising a job and not even telling the name of the company. I don't apply for jobs that don't mention company or pay.

I find this really irritating. My time is precious and more often than not you have to fill out the companies own application form rather than just sending in your CV. It takes time and effort, yet you may get an interview and the pay is really poor.

I wouldn't of bothered wasting my time applying if I knew beforehand the pay wasn't what I wanted. I would of focused my efforts elsewhere on a position which states the pay and a pay I'm happy with.

I'm pretty much the same as they previous poster, I no longer apply for a job unless the pay is stated.

This is something that I notice, and I now assume that if they don't advertise their pay, they are offering minimum wage. Most roles would be pleased to advertise if they were going to pay more than this.

However, you should never be worried about asking what they are paying. It is an important part of the process, and not something that they should have hidden in the first place. If you call them, you may be able to ask without the question being linked with your application when you decide to follow it up.
