Woman has her job interview canceled and the reason has outraged people

A woman's job interview was cancelled the moment she asked a question, and more than a few people are upset after learning the question she asked that led to the cancellation.

During the interview which appears to have been conducted online, the woman asked her interviewers what her salary and benefits will be if she got the job.

 Her interviewers immediately took that to mean she did not care enough about the job and was only concerned about benefits, so they informed her right away they would no longer go ahead with her. According to them, they wanted someone who would focus more on "company goals as opposed to focusing on compensation".
The woman, whose name was given as Victoria Karras, was called for a second interview and the same thing happened. During her interview with the company called SkipThe Dishes, she asked them what her salary would be and here is how they responded:
“Your questions reveal that your priorities are not in sync with SkipTheDishes. At this time we will not be following through with our meeting this Thursday.”
Victoria shared both responses online and it generated a conversation which led the company to apologise. One Twitter user wrote sarcastically; "we're really looking for more of a one-sided relationship where you care about us and we don't care if you starve and die", referring to the companies that wanted Victoria to care about their company goals alone, forgetting her basic needs.
SkipThe Dishes has reached out to the woman with an apology and an offer for a second interview.
Do you really think the lady did wrong by asking what the salary would be during an interview?
Read her question and the response below..

Companies want to use you but dont want to take care of you. When an employee is happy, his /her performance will improve. But no! They want to eat their cake and have it.

They are idiots. They should go to hell with their stupid job. No harm in trying to find out what the remuneration and benefits are. It's a transparent world now. Put everything on the table so that both parties can make informed decision. That's not too much to ask unless you are a slave driver who is ashamed to announce what you pay. Some companies even include the pay in the ad.

Nigerian workers would never get a job. The first or second sentence is Eh How much is the money!

well....Its being professional...u let the interviewee do the questions and until you are giving the opportunity to ask if u have anytg to say having said allor if u r asked directly what u want to earn or what u were earning before den u shoukd not ask.
its not professional at all..every interview will get to d stage of salary it always does..if d interview ends without mention of sary den u can politely ask the company or HR personnel your concerns about salary.
focus on presenting a good image and sell yourself first before u raise dat concern even though at d back of ur mind d wages is a huge consideration for u picking dat job especially if u have a present job and you want something better

I don't Think she is wrong. They want her to deliver effectively in return for a pay. So she needs to know how much is been paid for service rendered.

Funny how she's going to land one of the jobs if not both of them.

You don't ask interviewers what your salary will be. Rather you tell them you what and expectations so if they can, they hire you and if they cannot, you get dropped. She over jumped

Unless they know that the pay will be little, if not, most companies tell you what your take home is.

You don't talk about salary during an interview, even when they ask you. You have to be diplomatic about it. You can simply Say ' it negotiable if they ask you. Never be the one that will raise the salary issue during the interview.

Of kuz, she is right. Companies should know the relationship is mutual, this is not slavery era. And most companies is 9ja lately would say they do not want applicants above 26. Abeg wen person finish secondary sch with all dz incessant strikes for tertiary,plus time b4 service and time b4 gaining admission. The yeye criteria needs to be reviewed.

Sometimes you don't want to waste your time attending an interview when clearly the salary is not what you are looking for. Imagine if you have to pay for child care, transport, your time only to find out that the salary is below your expectations? I believe Organisations should be more transparent even if they do not want to advertise the salary, they should be confident enough to let the candidate know before the interview. Not every jobseeker is desperate, some of them know their worth!

In developed countries you ask-I have always asked or told them my salary expectation. In fact the organization will encourage you to ask and if it is something they can afford/consider, they will tell you if not the negotiation process begin

It's not really ethical but since d company hasn't mentioned it, she should Cox das her reason of looking for a job.
