No wonder they can match your last drawn pay. Had you been drawing 10k, do you think they could still match it?

Yup... Sickening isn't it?? Even though the boss really like you and wants you to join the team.. But alot of times, HR cannot accept the fact that their chicken-S.h.i.t salary has to be lower than a lecturer.. they will by all means attempt to discount you and get a good deal.. If they really succeed, they'll feel shiok and at the same time also scored points by saving money for the school while engaging a new talented staff... They can showcase this in their performance appraisal to be entitled for higher performance bonus as a result of getting you at a discount... Cheap sale!!! Lelong lelong!!!

It's more likely that the hiring manager isn't willing to budget for a higher salary for you. If the school wants you badly enough, they would have allocated a bigger chunk for you.

HR is just a scapegoat.

my last drawn pay before I joined the poly was more than 6k, and they matched it. My annual income is double of what I used to get before I joined the poly...my point is, not all poly are the same.

Dun be silly.. Why would they want to pay 10k to a single lecturer when the poly can actually employ two lecturer at just 5k each??!! In singapore, cost comes before everything.. If there isn't a need to hire so many expensive and high caliber people when they are just lecturing at diploma level... All schools want to keep staff cost low...

They got it for last year, an election bonus!

So, it's maybe once every 5-6 years.
