Marina wage rate survey underway

The Association of Marina Industries and Marina Dock Age magazine partnered to administer a marina wage rate survey.

The Association of Marina Industries and Marina Dock Age magazine partnered to administer a marina wage rate survey.

The partners said the purpose is to provide marina managers with a means to compare the salaries of their employees with others in the same region and across the nation.

The survey will contain information about employee wages and benefits across a range of job categories, including general manager, office administrator, store manager, forklift operators and dockhands. The survey will only examine positions related to marina operations.

The partners said managers will be able to use the results of the survey to ensure that their salaries are fair for the position, region and years of experience of each employee; raises reflect experience and region, as well as performance; and benefits are in line with the industry.

The more marinas that participate, the greater the database from which to draw the results, the partners said. To contribute data, participants will need to have payroll and benefit information ready. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.

The final report will be available this summer at no cost to marinas that provide data for the survey. For those that don't contribute data, the report will be for sale to AMI members for $65 and to non-members for $99.
