  • Security Investigator Allina Health

    Here is another job posting that doesn't mention a salary range. Since it states that a Bachelor's degree is preferred, I would anticipate that the salary is a more than a security officer. But that begs the question, how much more? Is this a $40,000 a year job? $50,000 a year or am I way off?

    No, I don't think you are way off. Given the experience you have to have and the preferred certifications, I'd say anything under $42,000 would be too low - granted, I realize these places throw everything in the job description trying to find Superman (or Wonder Woman) in a suit, but they are asking a lot.

    I wish I had an easy answer for how to find out salaries for these and lower positions. Some job sites will have a range calculator, where you type in the position title and it gives you the low and high end. Not perfect, but better than nothing. If I have the time I will look at similar positions at other companies or industries and figure it out from there.

    For others reading this, its important because the new thing (well, new to me) is to not list a salary or give a range, but just pop the question in the interview, "So, what were you looking for?" If you go on the low end, you cheat yourself; if you ask for too much they'll hire the cheaper candidate with the same qualifications.

    I'm speculating, but on high end jobs they are assuming you already know how much you should make (or can reasonably ask for).
