What can you deduce from the salary scale?
Each vacancy post by the government, posts a Salary Scale field.
19575x475 - 21950x625 - 23200x775 - 37125x1225 - 40800x1525 - 42325
What does the above actually mean? How can an employee deduce his salary from this? Are the increments yearly or monthly?
The increments are yearly.
From the above example the salary will be as follows:
Year 1 - 19575
Year 2 - 19575 + 475 = 20050
Year 3 - 20050 + 475 = 20525
Year 4 - 20525 + 475 = 21000
Year 5 - 21000 + 475 = 21475
Year 6 - 21475 + 475 = 21950
Then as from year 7, the yearly increment will be 625 added to the new basic of 21950, as shown above, until you reach the next scale.
Thanks for the explanation :)
Hi Bentesky, This was really helpful. I'll be glad if you can answer another question of mine. I've applied for a government post with the above salary scale. My current salary is at 22,000. If I get selected in the government sector, how much do you think they will offer me? Do I start from the initial 19,575 or from year 6 with 21,950 or from year 7 with 22,575 or with the next closest salary in the scale, 23,200?
wow i always thought it was professional experience in general
