The normal hiring range for any position is arrived at through a careful consideration of the prevailing wages in the appropriate labor market and an analysis of the internal equity within the hiring department and elsewhere in the University.
Minimum Hiring Salary
The minimum hiring salary is the minimum of the salary range for the grade.
Salary Placement for New Hires
Three major factors determine the starting salary for the job candidates:
- careful consideration of the range for prevailing wages in the appropriate labor market; and
- the expected performance level of the individual based on qualifications, education, training, skills and experience; and
- the rates of pay of other employees in the department and elsewhere in the University
Other relevant factors may be considered in appropriate cases.
Human Resources will make salary level recommendations to departments based on assessments of the experience, education, and training of the candidates to be hired, the prevailing wages in the appropriate labor markets, and the current compensation levels of others in the hiring department and in similar jobs across the University.
