System-wide Pay Plan Titles

System-wide Pay Plan Titles

The Texas A&M System-wide Pay Plan is administered by the Pay Plan Administration Committee and the Pay Plan Administrator at the System level. Each pay plan classification has associated with it a job title, title code, salary pay grade, FLSA exemption status, and job family.

Salary pay grades will be divided into three bands, allowing for greater flexibility for determining hire rates at the department level. The Lower Band may be used with Department Head Authorization. The Middle Band will require authorization at the level of VP/Dean or Designee. And use of the Upper Band will require authorization by both the VP and the VP of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness (may not be delegated).

Career Ladders

Below are links to various career ladders available at Texas A&M University. A career ladder is a series of defined levels within a job family where the nature of work is similar and the levels represent requirements for increased skill, knowledge and responsibility as an employee moves through a career. As generic job descriptions become available and approved, they will be linked appropriately within each career ladder page. Ladders that are fully linked to generic job descriptions are denoted with an asterisk (*).
