Survey: Best paid are employees with up to 10 years of experience

Employees who work at the same position for more than 10 years are paid less than those working at the same post for a shorter of time, showed a continual wage survey by the Merces.sk website.

Employees who work at the same position for more than 10 years are paid less than those working at the same post for a shorter of time, showed a continual wage survey by the Merces.sk website.

The agency has surveyed over 105,000 respondents since it began in August 2007. The category of employees working at one position for 3-5 years receive the highest salary at Sk26,400 (€876.32). Respondents with more than 20 years’ experience reported an average salary of Sk22,200 (736.9). The survey suggests that the difference was caused by a higher presence of state employees and employees of companies with a local owner.

Most employees in companies with a foreign owner, where salaries are higher on average and generally increase with experience, have less than 10 years’ experience in their position, as many of these companies arrived in Slovakia only a few years ago. Professional experience in a position is understood as the number of years during which the character of the work remains unchanged.

The Merces.sk survey also confirmed pay differences based on gender in general and regarding the number of years of professional experience. Men earn 30 percent more on average than women and this gap is even more considerable when including the increasing length of experience in a post.

The biggest gender difference in pay is after 6-10 years of working at the same position, when men earn Sk30,100 (€999.14) on average, while women have average pay of Sk21,500 (€713.67), which is a 40-percent gap. SITA
