Would you really stay for the retention incentives?

My husband’s company just told him that he got a raise but it won’t be effective until March. Is this a retention approach? I usually only hear something more similar like retention bonus which means you get a bonus payment (you can find out more from about cash bonuses) if you stay til certain date… but I’ve never really experienced a delayed raise.

Companies are definitely seeing a great turnover and trying their best to retain their employees. Do you think retention incentives are effective if you’re already thinking about leaving?

Would you turn down a promotion?

I was chatting with my friend about this scenario yesterday. So you’re very happy with your current pay and job function, but you’ve just been offered a promotion with more money but a lot more responsibilities. What would you do? I was surprised that my friend said she’d rather turn down the promotion to stay where she is and not get into a higher position. Is that common? What would you do?

Would you take an interview even though the salary range is lower than your expectation?

I was catching up with my former coworker during the weekend. She’s been actively job searching but couldn’t find an ideal job that pays better than her current salary. She told me that her dream company reached out to her for an interview but the salary range is $15K lower than her ideal salary. Should she take the interview?

Would you still go with it and find out more about the job and the company? Or would you pass and move on? Check out these questions to ask a hiring manager to give you some ideas!

Is there a better reason to stay besides the pay?

A friend of mine reached out for career advice. She’s got an offer with better pay. She notified her current employer and they offered her an equally competitive pay for her to stay. She’s torned about making a decision. It seems easier to stay at the current job because she won’t have to start everything fresh again. But there might be new challenges and room for growth if she decides to make a change.

If salary is no longer a factor, what would be the reason you’d want to stay at or leave a job? Coworkers? Responsibilities? Future growth?

How much does this job 💲PAY💲? Find out the States where they HAVE TO tell you

Following up on our discussion last week about job search pet peeve: salary range MIA, there is a growing trend in state pay transparency laws. If you are applying to jobs in #California, #Maryland, #RhodeIsland and #Washington, the employers MUST DISCLOSE pay range to applicants UPON REQUEST. Other states like #Nevada require employers to provide a salary range to applicants who have completed an interview even without a request. You can check more details about the regulation in your states. Or even better, advocate for something similar if your state doesn’t have such law!

Have you requested a salary range before? How was your experience like?
