I'm transitioning from contract to perm. Should I expect a raise?
I got a job a month and a half ago through a recruiting company.
On accident, the company that I'm actually doing work for showed me how much they are paying the recruiting company. That amount is $35 dollars an hour. The amount they are paying me is $20 an hour of that $35.
The company I'm actually doing work for wants to bring me on full time. Should I expect a pay raise, drop or nothing?
Reasons for a raise: They were paying 35, so they could easily pay 25 right?
Reasons for a drop: Now I receive benefits.
Reasons for same pay: a balance of the first 2.
I talked to the guys from the recruiting agency for no more than 30 minutes… no more.
I feel slightly robbed that they've made a couple grand off of my handwork.
