I have been working at Golden Gate University part-time (Less than a year)
The location of the university is in downtown, therefore easy to commute.
There is less IT career opportunities.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Golden Gate University.
I applied online and heard back from GGU the next day. I was told I might be a good fit for the role and they listed the salary at $48,000 in their introduction email and asked if I wanted to interview. I was a little thrown off and explained that was lower than what I was currently making, but if I could interview so we could all see if I was a good fit and if my experiences matched what they were looking for, then salary could be negotiated then. They responded that there was no room for negotiation, take it or leave it. So...I decided not to interview. Who can survive in San Francisco making $48,000?? Especially for an assistant director position! I'm not sure how GGU can expect to gain and maintain talent with compensation that's so low.
Reasons for Declining
The salary is below market rate for San Francisco
