Long story short, my current pay isn't the best so I started looking, at the moment I get around $50k pa with everything included. However I often work around 42 - 45 hours on average pw and some week can be even be as high as 48 hours. Not very good pay consider the hours I been putting in so I started looking.
Went for a new job application and so far I have done:
1 Online Theory
1 Phone Interview
1 Zoom Interview
They said they will come back to me on the final interview which is face to face in 2 weeks.
This new job is also salary, the perks are:
$53500pa + Super + Commission (Around $2000 pa estimated) + if I stay with them I get $2500 yearly bonus from the anniversary of employment. Which on paper looks pretty good compared to the current job. Basically its $3500 + $2000 + $2500 = $8000 more with less time worked.
My question is if I do indeed pass the final interview, when is a good time to start a bit of salary negotiation? At the end of the final interview or at the time when they offered me a job after the final interview? Either way what's the offer I should put in if they are open to negotiations? At the moment they didn't deny or agree to open negotiations or not.
