When and how often will I get paid?

This depends on what you and your employer agree on.

Many businesses in the U.S. and LATAM pay their employees every two weeks, though some pay once per month – so be sure to ask your employer about their payment schedule when you’re getting started with them.

In the beginning, we recommend you ask for weekly payments (splitting your monthly salary into 4 payments) to protect both you and your employer.

If the job doesn’t work out, weekly payments save you from doing a month’s worth of work without getting paid and save your employer from paying for a month’s worth of work if they aren’t satisfied with the results.

Once the two of you have established a mutual trust, feel free to discuss bi-weekly or monthly payments if that works better for you!
