I came to realization you don't work at OSU for the pay, you work there for the benefits. You must take advantage of every single benefit offered for you to make it feel worth going in to work everyday.

No. It's pretty embarrassing. We have interviewed dozens of people who wanted to work for us, but when they heard the MANDATORY starting pay, they realized they could get better pay at other employers in the same line of work.

Absolutely not. Pay is well below average for similar job descriptions at public or private sector employers in the region. There is no step raise system, which means it may take an hourly worker almost 30 years to reach top pay. The only raises are a 1%-2% maximum Cost of Living Adjustment. Union contract agreed pay rate tables have not increased in 12 years, making formerly competitive wages very lackluster.

Varies by department and experience levels as well as your classification. Sometimes the pay can be low after the deductions from your checks (again depending on your department and things like union dues, parking permits and such). Raises also depend on classification and department, there are far too many variables to be able to accurately answer that question as there are literally hundreds of departments.

No competition, only if you are a manager you will get higher pay.
