Salary Negotiations

I have an offer at FirstEnergy for 125k and no sign-on bonus. How should I negotiate a higher base salary? I’m currently at 123k (8 years work experience), so I’m not very excited by this offer.

    Good pay and great benefits. Excellent work/life balance. Leadership really seems to care about what we think and makes changes accordingly.


    This is a great company to work for. I can't think of any cons.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at FirstEnergy (Akron, OH) in Aug 2023


      Standard STAR interview with some technical questions about electric systems including circuits, common theories, how some electric machinery works. They said the tech questions were just to gauge the current level of knowledge.

      STAR type questions; some about diversity situations.
