    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    In my first contract I was offered 15,000.00 per month but arrived in Abu Dhabi to find a contract with a salary of 11,250.00 per month. HR would not honor the first agreement and I was left with having to take the low salary as I was already there. I left after 2 years for a position at a neighboring country. I was asked to reapply after 2 years at the other institution and did so because there had been a change in the administration. I negotiated my salary successfully but did not move till after I had the contract in hand and a string of emails documenting the negotiation process. Stating one salary and then being given a lower one is not peculiar to Zayed University. The American University in Dubai is known to do the same.
