Different salary seen on paycheck than what was promised in interview???

What’s the best way to bring up a lower salary you’re seeing on your paycheck at a new office, when in the interview you were told considerably higher? It’s my 1st paycheck at this office, so feel like I should say something now vs. later, but don’t want to sound like I’m one of those “all about the money money money” since I’m new to this office & they don’t know me all that well yet :-/

I’d bring it up now. If it is an honest mistake better get it sorted out now. It doesn’t have to be a big deal but you can just say point blank we agreed on X salary when I was hired and I see I’m being paid Y and I wanted to clear up any accounting error. You wont sound greedy. Everyone works for money and it seems wrong that they would not pay you the agreed upon salary.

They don’t know that you weren’t offered another job that you turned down to work there!

I would wait till the next paycheck and if it’s still considerably lower start a conversation with your boss. It could be an honest mistake.

Discuss immediately. Unless this was a paycheck that was not for the usual amount of days since you may have started during middle of a pay period.

I agree with the other answers here — bring this up now. It very well could be an honest mistake or a couple days weren’t counted. But let them know that when you were hired you had agreed on X salary and now you are receiving less than that. It is important to be assertive about these things and make sure that you are given what was previously agreed upon. If you were being paid what was agreed upon and THEN asked for more money, you would probably be looked at as being all about the money, but the situation you’re in is different, so I wouldn’t worry about it. Bring it up now though, otherwise you will start to resent your office more and more with every paycheck.
