Hold Steady

Our Eighth Annual Salary Survey

By Emily Tipping


Respondents from community recreation centers, YMCAs and colleges were the most likely to report that they were not satisfied with their current jobs, though even in these industry segments, dissatisfaction was uncommon. Some 11.7 percent of rec center respondents, 10.3 percent of YMCA respondents and 10.2 percent of college respondents said they were either unsatisfied or very unsatisfied.


On the flip side, the highest levels of job satisfaction were found among respondents from golf facilities, parks and schools. Some 96.1 percent of golf respondents, 91.5 percent of park respondents and 90.7 percent of school respondents said they were either satisfied or very satisfied in their current jobs.
