Years of Experience
Survey participants who have worked at Metro for between five and 10 years earn approximately $51K annually on average. Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can make around $40K per year on average. Overall, the greater share of Metro folks have 10-19 years of experience and earn an average $66K annually.
When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (about $78K per year) can be spotted in Portland, Ore.; Austin, Texas ($66K), Los Angeles, Calif. ($65K), and Houston, Texas (about $54K) are the next top-paying cities. Those interested in increasing earning potential should avoid the city of St. Petersburg, Fla. — at $40K, salaries are some of the lowest in the country. The highest pay by state can be found in Oregon, where salaries average out at $78K annually.
Operations Managers are awarded the highest paychecks, with compensation nearing approximately $62K per year.
Certifications and Degrees
Being a Certified Fraud Examiner certainly has its perks — salaries approach $78K annually and far exceed the paychecks of those without certification. It pays to have a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Metro — these employees make the most at around $97K per year.
The highest-paying skill in this position seems to be Strategic Planning; individuals who report it as part of the repertoire have a median income of $115K annually. A relatively widespread skill at Metro is Operations Management; nearly one-sixth of employees use it for work. Leadership, People Management, and Customer Relations are also desirable skills.
Benefits and Perks
The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only a third of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. Employees can save for retirement by joining one of several savings plans such as a 401(k) plan and a 403(b) plan. A large number of workers report having health insurance, and a strong majority of employees report having dental coverage. Advantages of working here also include life insurance, a subsidized cell phone, and a casual working environment.
