I interviewed for two positions: one a pre-k teacher position on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and one a research assistant last Thursday. The pre-k position didn't say when they would let me know about it or when the position starts, but it was a mid-year replacement. The research assistant was a phone interview and she said she would call me this week either for an in-person interview or to let me know I didn't get it. I got a call from a pre-school director I had left my resume with that said he had an immediate teacher's aide position. I got the call on Friday and he set up an interview for Monday, so I think he'll fill it fast. I need a job, but I don't want to get an aide job and miss out on one of the better-paying jobs. Can I call the other positions and ask if I have a chance? What would I say? Also, I don't know how to ask about salary/rate of pay. Do I ask about it in the interview? How? Some interviewers have told me, some have not, and since they're not public schools, I have no idea about the wages.
