Title: Pay scales
Post by: billmc on October 01, 2013, 09:42:59 PM
I'm not sure if this is the correct place for this post but here it goes - I'm wondering if anyone has any information on the average monthly salary of upper level managers (general manager - director) in the Philippines. I know it's kind of an open ended question and will vary by region and category (technical vs non-technical). I'm just trying to get an idea of what the pay scales are like for Filipinos.

As far as government management positions, I think PNoy gets about 1.25m to 1.4m pesos a year.  I saw a PNP pay scale once and if I remember right, the very top directors in PNP were like somewhere around 900,000 to 1m.  I could be mistaken though.

Well, I knew you would be back on and have it taken care of Art.  I found some pay scales but then was unable to access the site until I just got back on.  Good job.

Thanks Art, that is exactly what I was looking for. Sorry for not doing a search (google) before posting but I just figured I wouldn't get any hits and if I did I wouldn't know if the results were accurate.

Not sure about the rest on here, but reading those sites really makes you think.  I can't speak for everyone on here, but I know that I'm probably on the lower end of monthly incomes here and my income puts me pretty high up on that scale.  Just another reminder of where many of us are from and where we live/plan to live. 
Tina is the highest level of permanent employee working in the public market.  She pretty much runs the market and makes just a little less than the "boss" that is appointed over her each time a new mayor has come in.  My one month income is more than her 4 month income.  I never thought of that till now.  Blows me away when I think that what I get now, which is a lot less than I made when I was working my job in the USA, is still that much more than someone in Tina's position.

WB,
You can be too, if you just Google, Yahoo, Bing or You Tube it
here on one web page: http://www.centpage.com/ (http://www.centpage.com/)
I used You Tube's video instructions to fix our toilets when it was
constantly loosing water and now it saves us at least P300 a month
since our toilets do not leak anymore! Never knew toilets were so
complicated! We are billed once every 3 months. Ops! Off topic again!
OK! Back on topic! What's the pay scale for a Filipino plumber to fix
our toilets, cost of parts not included? ;)
