Working Conditions: (Optional)
Enter an idea of the person’s hours of work and overtime requirements, how much work is performed inside and
outside, and the type of equipment and machinery expected to be used. Let them know if the job is fast-paced with
daily deadlines or is there a more relaxed environment. Also, include the working relationship expected with other
employees such as if the position is part of a broader team such as a sales team. You might also let them know if their
position requires working at night or holidays.
Salary and Benefits: (Optional)
Enter what you feel the job is worth to your business if you’re filling new position. Setting a salary or other rate of
compensation is a delicate process. Using terms such as “starting salary” implies that employees will obtain raises as
they acquire time on the job. The statement “salary is negotiable” without giving a pay range may waste the time of
both the employer and the applicant if their wage expectations differ considerably.
Some employers don’t like to advertise that a starting salary is negotiable because they feel doing so may encourage
applicants to ask for higher wages. On the other hand, if the starting salary is negotiable you have the flexibility to
adjust the pay to the qualifications of the applicant. Many job descriptions advertise “salary commensurate with
qualifications”.
The salary and benefits section should detail information about benefits such as paid vacation, sick leave, health
insurance coverage, and retirement programs. Any special benefits provided should also be noted. Example: Housing is
often provided to farm employees. The location and condition of any housing provided should be described. Other
benefits might include opportunities to participate in additional training once they’re hired for licenses or general skill
improvement.
I have read and received a copy of my job description. I understand this overrides anything I have been given
or told in the past. I further understand that I am expected to follow my job as outlined above, and that if I
have any questions concerning what is expected of me, I will speak with my immediate supervisor identified
above.
