So these Pay Grades, except for level 33, have about eight steps. Level 33 only has two steps.

Salary Steps depend on how long a particular employee has been working in a specific position. Now, of course, this means that, while they may have different Salary Grades, new hires will always start at Salary Step 1. After that, employees move up a step every three years, provided they continuously exhibit competent effort at their job.

Employees who have served their three years well will learn of their pay raise with a Notice of Step Increment. And, of course, should an employee work hard at their job, the process will continue until Step 8, the very last one. Step 8 offers the highest rate within a Salary Grade!

Wrapping up the nation’s compensation system

An employee’s livelihood depends on their wage. It is what pays them for the arduous labor they provide to their company! Therefore, Pay Grades are necessary.

It might be difficult for a business to manage its own Pay Grades, but it’s not impossible. Starting from scratch might result in an unjust or uneven grading scale for the organization. On the other hand, potential problems like inconsistencies will be eliminated by a government-mandated salary grade. – WhatALife!/Jayve
