the asking for W2s thing is something that, while not technically illegal, is such incredible bush league crap that unless you're hurting for work, you should walk out the door right then

i make sure that my people are paid what they're worth to the company (plus as much extra as i can get them, as then they are happy and they stick around, and if i don't get the stupid bonus for keeping personnel costs low, i couldn't care less) and that has precisely zero to do with what they may have made at their last firm

if a job asks you waht you would like to make and there's a difference between where they're slotting you and what you want, that's one thing, but using your old pay is completely asinine and representative of a crappy culture
