1.Ask for what you want or a little more so you will get what you want.


2. If they ask you what you made on your last job , answer with how much you want , not with what they paid you,if they really do check that then you'll only get offered what you were paid before,,,that's why they ask that question.

3. Company's that check to see what you were previously making will never ever pay you what you're worth because they are cheap,,,,:censored:ks.

I can honestly say that at this point.....our wages are actually rising. It's at the highest point I've seen in 20 yrs.
The gap between the wages in the eastern and the western provinces has gotten as close as it has ever been.

Agreed

This is bad advice.

Do not lie, you get caught in a lie on your interview and that will usally send down the road.

:no:

For $20/hr thats a risk I would take.
When is the last time you made $20/hr BBQ....for me, it was sometime in the mid 90's as a helper.


That EC is merely looking for warm bodies to get a job done..experience optional, desperation preferred.
