Is there a proper way to inquire about compensation on an internal job posting? I work for a small company with some common ownership with a number of other small to medium sized companies in different geographic markets in our region. Occasionally, there are job postings at other offices but no indication of compensation. My base + bonus at present company is quite generous due to cost of living as well as job description. I would be interested in sales engineer role that is different than the one I'm in now (engineer/management) so I'm very unclear about what salary opportunities would be and if this would be an appropriate move financially. Any ideas on classy ways to make such an inquiry would be appreciated. I have talked to present boss about my interest in this move and he was concerned about how much I would be able to make in a sales engineer role in a smaller market.

Whether it's internal or external it's still a job interview, so at the risk of sounding flippant "You got nothing until you got something"

If you know the job title and the location, will tell you what to expect. This is part of what you need to do before the interview. Know the salary range.
