Salaries and Advancement
Payday is every other Friday for a two-week work period. Checks are given directly to the employee or electronic deposit is available.
Salary ranges for most jobs have five stages at 5% intervals. Hiring is normally the first step. Eligibility for an increase to step 2 comes after six months of employment and yearly thereafter to step 5 if work performance is satisfactory and your department head recommends it.
On promoting to a job with a higher salary range, an employee advances to a step in that range providing a salary higher than before.
Salary range reviews are usually done annually with adjustments based on comparable jobs elsewhere. Meeting and conferring with employee organizations are part of the process. When a salary range changes upward as a part of this process, employees go to the same step as in the previous range.
