that mean all my friend in DSTA, that I had ask had bluff me la...

they only told me yearly increment is 4-5% or $100-150 per year!!!

if it is really 10% increment(maybe the total increment of 1x in june and 1x in dec = 10%) at least per year.....

then I can say that those 2nd upper grad with NS, starting 3580, after 3 years in dsta will be getting 4.7k if no promotion, will hit 5k if got at least 1x promotion...<<<m i correct to say that this is true!!!

and every 2-3 years, will have salary/wage market adjustment too



thank for the input

u can ask them for the past FY, how much is their increment. i believe the $100 is the end of year increment. he has not added in those misc increments / salary adjustments during the year.

after 3 years can hit 4.7k? cant confirm, but i will say it won't be far off. if promoted within 2 yrs, will hit even faster. if not, then will take 3-4 yrs to hit that amount. a promotion increment will be about $300-$400.

i just quote a 2nd upper with NS [email protected] fresh grad = 3580

just an example
year 0, 2012---->3580
after 1 yr, 2013---->1.1x3580= 3938
after 2 yr, 2014---->1.1x3938= 4331
after 3 yr, 2015---->1.1x4331= 4765---->will hit 4.7k if no promotion(i suppose is average C performer), if got promotion will be 300-400 more, thus 5k -5.1k in 3 years..


hope my hypothesis is correct

Hi everyone,

I am currently offered the position of Procurement Executive. Executive pay is 3.2K a month (I'm a girl). for guys, it'll be 3.5K.

Engineers pay is much higher than Executive's pay. My friend is getting 3.9K for second upper.

I have yet to start work, but my friends who are in DSTA told me increment is about 10% each year, and the bonus depends very much on the economy. They got 2-3 months last year.

Hope it helps!

oh yes, DSTA is contract. Its a one year contract, but most likely you'll be converted to perm staff as long as you don't screw things up

As you had mention, you are a female.
Can I know are you 2nd lower or 2nd upper for 3.2k as Procurement Executive?

10% basic increment maybe true for recent past 2 years, even Civil Service is giving out around there - given the exponential rise in property prices. Would be highly doubtful if it's "repeatable" every year for long. If true, most millionaires in sg will be milled out from dsta.

If I'm not wrong, DSTA is one of the best paying statboards in Singapore. However, it is also one of the statboard that has to most engineering scholars in Singapore as well. A lot of Ivy League/UCL/Imperial. When it comes to performance ranking against them, you will need to work very hard.
