what should a 5 yrs total experience as a QA get as a pay?
initially jobs around here i applied for before offered $15-21/hr pay for new grads/entry level. and this company offered me $19. i accepted it regardless of my 3 yrs experience since i only do manual testing and this company is very close to my place and im new here to the USA.
going to having 5 yrs of total manual testing experience and a few product leading experience, i am looking into asking for a promotion or at least a salary increase but i don't know how much i should ask for. any ideas? i'm in Utah, USA.
I would suggest that your previous experience played a part in determining your starting salary/wages in your current position.
Have you tried using Monster.com to answer this question? When I was searching for a new position about 3 months ago, to determine what a fair "asking" rate of pay was, Monster was pretty good at calculating based upon region and skillset.
