Association Publishes Free Industry Salary Survey

AASHTO has published its annual online "Salary Survey" publication covering information for 2017, a free compilation of job classifications and salary information on positions currently used by state departments of transportation. salarypub17.jpg

The association said the survey "is intended as a tool for human resources administrators and other professionals whose work involves studying and analyzing job classifications, writing job descriptions and developing/designing pay structures unique to departments of transportation."

Developed by AASHTO's Committee on Human Resources and compiled by the Colorado DOT, the publication is available through the AASHTO Bookstore both as a PDF download, which includes the report's complete data, and as an Excel spreadsheet that allows users to sort the data and perform specialized analysis.

The Salary Survey divides 74 job titles into five broad categories – administrative, engineering, general, maintenance and other. For each title it provides a brief description, salary range and actual salary.

It also includes a benefits section with information on medical insurance, paid time off and retirement plans.

As a further service to readers, it provides information where readers can obtain data that is not part of the AASHTO survey, including websites for job class specifications, salary information and a DOT contact list.
