Many of the job adverts in Ireland and other countries use abbreviations such as” Pay Neg DOE” or “Pay DOE”
This is confusing for lots of people – and many people from outside Ireland are not familiar with the meaning of it .
What is the meaning of “NEG” in a job advert ?
Neg is short for “Negotiable”. This means the employer is willing to negotiate or discuss the level of payment for the job.
What is the meaning of DOE in a job vacancy ? :
The letters DOE stand for ” Depends on Experience” – this means the pay level offered will vary with the amount of previous experience you have . If you have more experience in a similar role – you should expect to be offered higher pay than someone with no experience or very little
Remember – you should always get at least the Minimum Wage in Ireland
