Should a potential employer answer salary bracket question(s) prior to interview?
I'm a bit annoyed that this company want me to come into the city for an interview, yet when I replied to the email asking for an indication of the salary range they replied that this can be 'discussed at the interview'.
They didn't advertise the role through an agency.
Is this standard? I might sound a bit slack of me but I don't want to waste half a day travelling in for the interview only to be disappointed by the salary on offer. It's hard enough looking for suitable work and childcare as a SP.

Yep this is pretty standard.

It is pretty standard especially for employers/jobs where the salary is negotiable.

It is a bummer! There is a website actually where you can type in the kind of job and it gives an estimate of the award.

Yes it's just in my field there can be quite a large 20k bracket depending on how senior the role is. I often see exact same job description yet one employer will be offering say $10 per hour less.... At least roles advertised by recruitment agencies specify salary! Hmmm well I'll think about it.

I'd still go to the interview, you have nothing to lose if it works out what you want!

At my work its pretty common. We pay people depending on experience and it's easier to gauge that after that interview
