Compensation - Entry Level Salary

To specify the criteria used to determine the entry level salary for full-time personnel.

Entry-Level Salary

General Practice is that the president hires new staff at salaries that are between the minimum and midpoint range for any position. In addition, new staff is not generally hired at salary levels above those of current employees with like credentials within the same position. Entry-level salaries for faculty are established through use of the Faculty Salary Placement Form (Section XIII: F X i). At the discretion of the President, entry-level salaries may from time to time reflect market demand that necessitates an exception to these practices.

Other considerations are:

  1. The individual's preparation for the job.
    1. Education
    2. Training
  2. The individual's work experience in related areas.
  3. The relationship of the individual's qualifications and abilities to the position being filled.
  4. Situational occurrences.
    1. The supply and demand in the job market for the position being filled.
    2. The funds available from the current budget as allotted by the North Carolina Community College System.
  5. Salary profile information for equivalent positions within the North Carolina Community College System and the College.
