Job Classification & Compensation

At PSU the pay for a position is determined by job analysis, collective bargaining agreement, internal comparators, and/or market pay rates for comparable jobs in our industry. Job Classification is when jobs are classified into an existing grade / category structure of hierarchy. Each level in the grade / hierarchy structure has a description and associated salary. Each job is assigned to the grade / category providing the closest match to the job.
