Hi All! I'm an activity assistant and CNA from NW Indiana. I'm currently working on my activity director certification and have been job hunting for a directors job. I have an interview for an AD job next Wednesday but I must admit I have no clue as to what kind of salary to negotiate for if I actually get it. As an assistant I currently get my CNA pay which honestly isn' t much. I feel content with it though because I just get to go out and have fun and help with the brainstorming. However I do feel as a director my compensation should be higher because of all the extra paperwork and responsibility not to mention managing a small activities staff. Since this will be my first AD job I was wondering what some of you guys salaries starting were and what sounds fair. I don't expect to become rich, I've already learned that working in LTC is really more a labor of love but at the same time I don't want to be cheated due to inexpierence in that department. I feel besides that I"m prepared for the interview. I have examples of programs I've established and run at my current location as well as some new ideas I would like to incorporate at a new facility. Any other hints you have will be appreciated.
