I'm a CA-3 really just getting into the interview process. I will likely take a job 1000+ miles from where I currently live so I can't afford the time off or money to interview many places. That said, I have several upcoming first contact phone interviews with varying group managers or other first contact representatives. My question really comes down to when is the appropriate time to ask about salary, vacation, work hrs etc? I am willing to work hard, but I'd like to get paid for my work and I don't want to come off the wrong way. I also don't want to waste time learning about a sub par job if the salary isn't acceptable. Any help on when is the most appropriate time to ask these important questions would be appreciated.
