Compensation Overview

COMPENSATION PLAN

Fundamental to the administration of wages and salaries within the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) and East Tennessee State University is a commitment to pay equitable and competitive salaries as determined by internal job analyses and external market statistics within the limits of resources appropriated. It is intended that this compensation system attract and maintain competent and well-qualified employees and provide a fair and objective reward structure.The East Tennessee State University Compensation Plan was developed to insure that administrative/professional and clerical/support employees are classified accurately and equitably paid in accordance with the complexities of their job duties. The Plan is not an employee performance appraisal technique but a quantitative job evaluation instrument (PPP-32).


The value of employment at ETSU goes far beyond salary.  As a potential employee, you will enjoy a full range of benefits, services and programs.  Total compensation includes annual salary, a generous annual and sick leave program, 13 paid holidays, health and life insurance, retirement, 401(k) and more.  This calculator provides prospective employees with an illustrated breakdown of total compensation.  To see the total estimated value of salary and benefits, simply click the calculator icon on the right, choose the appropriate job type, fill-in an annual base salary, select a health plan coverage, and click the "Calculate" button.
