How honest to be with your future employer

I've got a job (dead end job) the pay is awful. Got an offer for another company turned them down now we are negotiating ( a little better pay still bad) The manager and corporate office are worried that if they give me more money than they usually do for this position ill be gone in the year for a better job ( which is the plan). Do i tell them what they want to hear or the truth
They have expressed that Iam the top candidate and they really want me if I seriously want to stay a while

Would you hire someone that tells you they aren't going to stick around?

Tell them what they want to hear. Business is business and you always want to move up the ladder when you can.

Tell them what they want to hear. I wouldn't expect them to be terribly loyal to you either. As the other poster said, "Business is business."

Tell them what they want to hear, bust your ass, and when time comes to keep you, they can pay up or say see you later.

That's what I would do but it might only be 1-5 months, and I think I will get another offer with the next 6 months but hate to hold out on something that never happens

If the pay isn't that much better and you are going to be jumping ship again soon I would avoid it. As an employer, when I am looking for an employee I want someone who is going to be loyal and there a long time.
When a resume shows a bit of job hopping it is always a red flag.
Don't let a short term gain prevent you from hitting paydirt down the road.

Will you be loyal to them as well? In most cases, they won't be.

I agree about the job hopping,but if I didn't ever get another job(and you never know)I would much rather be at the new job

Take the job. Companies (large companies) will never be loyal to you.
