what would you expect? *Update*
November 21, 2012 at 2:52 AM
I'm about to be offered a full time position at my store managing the stockroom. My husband is unemployed right now and looking for a job, but I don't want to take this job if all it's going to do is pay for daycare while we're both working. I'm not supposed to know about this offer or any of the events about to happen that are making this job available, so I can't really ask about it. So what kind of salary wuld you expect for a position like that? *Update* He ended up offering me a choice between the stockrooom and a lower management position. I took the latter. It's about a dollar more than what I'm making now and still part time, but it comes with opportunities for advancement, which the stockrom job didn't have. I was also offered a job as Children's Pastor at our church starting in March, and my husband got a job. So our biggest issue now is finding affordable childcare.

    not sure what the going rate for managers is but at least. 14/hr   No clue for salary.  That is something that would have to be discussed with HR.

    haha according to this site i am way underexpecting ......... http://www.glassdoor.com/Salaries/retail-store-manager-salary-SRCH_KO0,20.htm

    It's technically not a real management position, but the only other full time employees are managers. So I don't really have a salary to compare to. Our store managers make in the 50-60K range.

    I would calculate what I'd need to make to cover current household expenses and childcare, add % tac bracket you're in and divide that by hours worked.

    And you can ask for the pay rate when they make the offer and ask for a 24 period to discuss it with your dh.

    Our expenses in order to get off of assistance, not counting health insurance, total conservatively 30K per year. PP posted an expectation of $14 per hour, which is just over 29K per year. If I could get that, then DH could find a pt job and go back to school, which is the goal right now.

    I'm planning to do that. I'm just trying to figure out what to expect so I can mentally prepare. Also, DH applied for a concrete job yesterday, and I don't know if he should take it if it's only going to be for a couple of months.

    40hrs/wk x 51wks = 2040 hours/yr. So 30,000/2040=14.70. So there's your minimum! :)

    It's a salaried position. Much simpler to just say 30K. :)

    Right at $8 per hour as a part time associate.
