    understanding salary grades... what are they?

    i've seen in some job ads that say "salary grade: 16 ++ allowances" or "salary grade: 13"

    what does this mean? does the 16 and 13 mean 16,000 and 13,000 a month or what? or is there like an informative table for the equivalent of those numbers?

    i think salary grades are used only in government jobs. the base salary grade of 1 i think is the minimum wage and an increase in salary grade usually comes with a fixed amount of increase in one's salary.

    salary grades are usually assigned to group different positions/jobs.

    SG 1 may be the lowest, usually janitors and such.

    SG 22 may be for officers, department heads, etc... and as such have higher salary.

    usually, the term "SG" is used in government agencies but there are equivalent terms in private firms.

    Council is right. In private they are usually called job brackets or salary scales etc.

    You should be lucky if the company you are working or applying for already has salary grades and are implemented. That would assure you that people who do more or less the same level of job have close salaries. It eliminates salary complaints to a certain extent.

    For example, you are both programmers and you found out that your buddy earns double than you. What would you feel?
