U of C pay grades [Sep. 24th, 2008|02:40 pm]
University of Chicago

I hope this isn't taken as an intrusion...I've applied for a job at UChicago and it is listed with pay grade "E-30." The only site I've found to look up these pay grades is at http://hr.uchicago.edu/compensation/salary.html, but I can't look it up as I'm not an employee or student. It's the first link: 2008–2009 Non-Union, Non-IT Salary Scale.

Would anyone be willing to access the page and see if there is any info for E-30?

Tried logging in with my student ID and it wouldn't accept it; sorry. :/

What position is it? Just curious. I don't know the exact numbers offhand, but the midpoint is around 55k. I can check on the full scale for you later.

Here ya go:

(First # is Minimum, Second is Q1, Third is Midpoint, Fourth is Q3, Fifth is Maximum)

Annual: $ 39,664 $ 47,744 $ 55,823 $ 63,901 $ 71,981
Monthly: $ 3,305 $ 3,979 $ 4,652 $ 5,325 $ 5,998
Hourly: $ 20.34 $ 24.48 $ 28.63 $ 32.77 $ 36.91

Sorry if it looks weird. It was organized in a chart so I did the best I could.

Thank you so much!!! That is really going to help my case - they offered me way less than the midpoint :(

In fact, they probably offer less than the midpoint to, like, half the people in that grade. Those bastards!

Now if they offered you less than the minimum, that'd be problematic.

Yes, that would just be insulting. And you're probably correct that Q1 offers are common practice - I know they're just trying to save money. Still, that's why God created counter offers ;)

Thanks again!

Well, of the total people in that pay grade I'd expect 25% to be in Q1. For new hires, I'd expect that to be higher (as pay usually rises over time). Add in the Dunning-Kruger effect, and people will always think life's unfair...

Re: U of C pay grades

This is from 2006, so they're probably higher now, but it's better than nothing:

Min salary is $31,497/year, midpoint is $42,601, and max is $53,706

What about the pay grade E-25?

I'm trying to figure out the range for pay grade E-25 at UChicago and would be incredibly appreciative if anyone can help me figure this out.
