FT ACCEPTED LOWBALL SALARY OFFER BECAUSE HE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND SINGLISH

I am a foreigner living overseas. I just interviewed with one of IT companies in Singapore.

Everything went well in technical interviews and final HR interview was scheduled to make an offer. The HR asked me for expected salary and I got confused because I was unable understand her Singlish accent properly (I am sorry, I am not judging Singlish accent, I just don’t have much interaction with Singlish).

In my confusion, I said 8000 SGD and they accepted the offer happily. Now contract is signed and I came to know from some connection that for fresh PhDs that the company offers 10,000 SGD for graduates with similar credentials.

Since the contract has been signed and they have initiated the EP visa process. What could be good options for me to consider now?

In Singapore, do we have options for negotiation during probation period? Is 8000 SGD fair salary for fresh PhD graduated of Electronics Engineering? Thank you!

Netizens’ comments

  • What is so difficult to understand about “expected salary”?? Nothing to do with singlish or English….
  • Since you don’t know singlish, it’s best for you to leave the country altogether. Your performance might be affected due to your sub par communications skills. Go somewhere else where you can put your Permanent Head Damage to better use.
  • Contract wasn’t written in Singlish, and 8000 SGD is not Singlish. Please don’t push blame when it was mutually agreed on the salary.
