Classification, Position Count and Salary Information

I need to compare job classifications and get current salary information.

  • All county classification specifications and current salary ranges for all County jobs are here. These are listed in alphabetical order by classification title.
  • Salaries are listed with the Classification Specifications. This section provides the exact hourly rate with approximate monthly and annual salary rates. If you need exact biweekly salary information, you can use this link to the Job Classification Table.

I don't know what the right County job title is to make a match.

  • Use the Classification Specifications link to get the full list of County jobs and then use the search feature to narrow the list down to the jobs that might have the right words in the title. Then you can click on the classification specification to see if it is the right one. For example, you are looking for Vocational Nurse but can't find it in the V's. If you use the search function and enter "Vocational", the system will come back with Licensed Vocational Nurse as well as classes for Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors. Then you can click on Licensed Vocational Nurse to check the classification specification for the correct match as well as get the salary information.

I have job titles and just need to get current salary information.

  • The Job Classification Table gives you access to a downloadable Excel spreadsheet that contains all salary information as well as all of the following information about County classifications:
