I don't know what's your field, but this was published in other forums and it may help you.

What market is the job in? Here in the midwest it's tough to find a steady gig like you described,with good benefits, that will pay over 60K a year...and that will include a lot of unpaid overtime. As with anything, there are a few exceptions.

Good Luck with the interview!

one office is in Nashville, but their headquarters are in Virginia....I don't want to say too much (don't want to jinx anything), but they do gov't work (contractor).....they offer full benefits, work with major video/grip equipment....I'm just trying to figure out what a fair/good salary would be with a DP/Producer with over 10 years experience seeking fulltime work....don't want to go under or over salary needs...I'm thinking, mid $50k's (???)

Paul-
I think you need to take cost of living into account. If you are working in the Southern part of Virginia or Nashville there's a WHOPPING big difference between the cost of living there versus Northern Virginia, ie.- greater Washington, DC. A salary in the $50's can be a nice life in the South. In DC it's almost poverty.

You might want to negotiate on the basis of what others get paid, if that's possible.

Ditto what Nick said...

I'm based in Central Illinois, and I'm compensated pretty well for this market. I do a lot of contractual work for a firm based in northern Virginia. (DC Suburbs)

I've given some thought to relocating there, and figure I'd need at least about an extra 30-40K more than I make now.

I indeed have seriously considered cost of living, that's what I'm basing my information on....cityrating.com has also been a good source of curent information on the Nashville market.

I'm trying to do as much research as I can, although they said they take into account my experience, markets I've worked in, what I would think I'm worth...I spent 5 years in Houston, then worked in Denver, before being laid off, have now been in the biz for over 10 yrs. I know the cost of living is alot higher in VA than Nashville, so am taking all this into account. I currently live in the prairies of the northern plains, so pay here is lowsy, unless you've been at a place for 10 yrs+....

I would say Nashville is similar to Denver in a lot of ways. So low 50's to 60 might be about right.
But nationwide the entire market is over-saturated, and that usually means a dip in expected pay.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...

You should be at around 300k a year but when they offer the 60k they've put aside for the position, decide if you can work for that price or not.
