Thanks to whoever replied my queries, really appreciated it.

Just another question, how many years does it typically take for a good performer to move from Pax 6 to 5 and to 4?

3) Criteria also goes back to Point no. 2 No hard and fast rule.

Just my 2 cents suggestion - Don't bother to aim for high pay as a lecturer. But the pay here should be ok for you to survive in Spore. So you have to weight the pros and cons. Work life balance or good money.

At least 4 years of good performance appraisal to move from pax 6 to 4

Thumbs down

How difficult/easy is it to convert from PT to FT? What to expect/ask for the salary in this case? Will it be same amount as working PT for 5 days a week with CPF?

Default Whats stopping you

Its fine to discuss about salaries here to gauge how poly staff are remunerated and at least we know we are not alone but those who keeps complaining of not being paid enough or better mu question is whats stopping you???! Go out and get that other job which will pay you higher and with better work environment... Or you are just wishing for all the goodies but no hard work? Get a life!

When I convert to work in poly, with similar pay, there are more work in poly than the industry. It is not nice for pple out there to speculate that lecturers are having work-life balance and are paid better.

I am looking at the salary scales posted in this thread (copied below).

Could someone please explain the 3 numbers? Using PAX 5 as an example, it says "$ 3,750 - 5,740 / 6,740", does it mean that 3750-5740 is the range? Then what about 6740?

PAX Salary Range (effective 1 Sep 2012)

PAX 2
$10,920 - 14,910 /16,900

PAX 3
$ 7,060 - 9,670 /10,980

PAX 4A/4E
$ 5,120 - 7,690 / 8,980

PAX 5A/5E
$ 3,750 - 5,740 / 6,740

PAX 6A/6E
$ 2,410 - 4,270 / 5,200

PAX 4A/4E

PAX 5A/5E
$ 3,750 - 5,740 / 6,740

PAX 6A/6E
$ 2,410 - 4,270 / 5,200

The range is $3750 to $6740.

Max. salary, also called ceiling for PAX5 is $6740. Implication is - Once you reach this number and if you have not been promoted, you will not get any Merit Increment. But you will still get your performance bonus. You will remain at this salary forever, unless there is a change in the ceiling which is usually changed after Salary Reviews, done every 4 years or so.

$5740 is the BAR. You need to cross this number before you can be considered for promotion to the next PAX level, which is PAX4.

No. No need to cross bar before being promoted. To cross bar at PAX4-6, need to get 2 consecutive >C+.

oops... I meant C+ and above
You mean you crossed the bar by getting a C? That's weird. We had a briefing by HR and this was specifically mentioned. Get a C then can't cross bar.
