Default SALARY STEP NEGOTIATION ADVICE

I've been an ACO for 22 years. I do bring a lot to the table with experience in different areas within animal control. I'm currently going thru the interviewing process with another dept/state. Since this is a County, blue-collar position and not a corporate position, would I be wrong to negotiate starting salary? The new position starting salary is $6.00 less than what I make topped out. Has anybody negotiated their starting tier step when starting or transferring to another Government agency?

The is also the first time, I've seen this announced on a job bulletin:

"The successful candidate will start at the minimum of the salary range unless otherwise approved by the County Manager."

Looks to me like you've got some room to negotiate! Best of luck to you.

I've negotiated that and been successful. They hired me for all my experience and rewarded me as such. It saved them from training me and so on.

I have negotiated every new position I have taken. They usually have aquiest. YOU know what you're worth. It never hurts to try.
