Employer won’t disclose hourly billing rate after working 2 monthsLocked
I have been at this job for almost 2 months now and I am getting some strange feelings about the wok enviornment. The owner is a major cheap skate and he is also young (late 20’s). We are a small company with 4 employees.
I do system/network administration, system maintenance and some help desk work. I know that I’m not getting top dollar but am fairly satisfied with my pay rate. I actually got what I asked for in the interview after an hou of haggling.
Now, here’s the dilemma. I used to own my own business doing the same thing he is doing, but I moved across the country and then back again. Upon moving back, I was hired by this company. The owner knows that I have no intention or even the means to start my own company at this point.
I’ve asked what they charge for administration work probably 4-5 times (when it was appropriate, they were talking about billing and how many hours I had worked..) They always tell me that it depends upon the customer (because they do work for non-profits at times). They really try to get off the question very quickly and act like they have to go do something or make a phone call all the sudden.
What would you think of this? How would you handle this? Is this strange?
Thanks for any input here!
