My last company is known to pay better than the current company I am applying to.
  • HR later called back again to confirm an interview and gave me the application form that asks for my expected salary again.
  • Can I now quote a higher figure and take a lower pay cut without getting into trouble with the hiring manager/HR?
Put the actual figure you really want, justify if needed. Salary shouldnt be the main concern before interview for both parties.
