I have recently been extended an offer of employment with Wells Fargo at a starting wage of 9.25. Having reviewed the other wages that the other banks offer, the average is 10.62 and 10.72, and I have been group interviewed for BoA. The e-mail mentioned before the group interview that their starting wage is 10.82. Although, I don't know if the 10.82 applies to people with banking experience or any teller who starts their employment with BoA.
So that has left me to wonder if Wells Fargo shortchanged me. I asked the HR recruiter why my wage is a little lower when compared to the average wages a teller receives, and she told me that it was because I have no previous banking experience. While I normally would accept such reasoning, I still feel that they're about to pay me lower than expected when I saw how much BoA would potentially pay me. Is the 10.82 the actual wage or is it the wage for experienced tellers? Or is 9.25 the actual wage for people with no banking experience?
Anyone, please respond. I need to know before Friday so I can confirm my suspicions and decline my already accepted offer IF I am supposed to be paid higher even if I don't have experience as a teller.
