Experience boosts auditors' salaries, but not shop assistants’

The average salary of an inexperienced employee in Slovakia is €788 a month, while someone with 6-10 years of career experience behind them earns €1,041 on average, according to the results of an online salary survey carried out by platy.sk. In some cases, experience can increase employees’ salary by up to 70 percent; but for other positions experience seems to have little or no effect on pay.

The average salary of an inexperienced employee in Slovakia is €788 a month, while someone with 6-10 years of career experience behind them earns €1,041 on average, according to the results of an online salary survey carried out by platy.sk. In some cases, experience can increase employees’ salary by up to 70 percent; but for other positions experience seems to have little or no effect on pay.

The highest increases related to experience were reported among database analysts (78 percent) and auditors (70 percent), the TASR newswire reported, quoting the survey. On the other hand, cleaning staff and shop assistants had almost the same salary after ten years as recently hired colleagues. Another aspect the platy.sk survey pointed to is that there is generally high demand for job positions that don't require much experience, so employers always have many candidates to choose from, without the need to increase salaries.

"People working in the same position for more than 10 years often have lower salaries than people who were hired for the same position later on,” platy.sk product manager Miroslav Drávecký explained. “This is caused by the fact that people joining the company when the economic situation was more robust could have starting salaries higher than those of their longer-working colleagues,"

People working in the IT sector enjoy the biggest salary hikes. Positions such as IT security specialist, database analyst and database administrator are likely to be earning 50 percent more than they did when they were hired three to five years ago.
