I’m hoping against hope that I will get the job I interviewed for yesterday, but we haven’t talked pay at all yet. I never really like to discuss pay until I’m pretty sure I have the job. So, I should be hearing back today on whether or not I got it, and in the meantime, I’m looking for a really good online source for salary comparisons. I tried salary.com and payscale.com, and their listings for normal salary/wages for the same job were vastly different.
Do any of you have recommendations for a really accurate website with payscale information?

In school we were given a link to http://www.careercruising.com/ it lets you take quizzes and look at information to determine what job is right for you. It has has a section that outlines what you should expect to be paid depending on your experience or how long you’ve worked in the specific feild. I’ve always found it to be quite accurate.

Thank you! That site is really cool. I took the assessment, and the position that came up in the first place for me was Cook, ha! Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like they have “pastry chef” as an option, but it has salary ranges for cooks, bakers, and chefs, which is really helpful. Thanks again!
