2015 Salary Survey Results

The results are in for the 2015 GuildSomm Salary Survey. Thank you to all who participated!

  • We make sure to only put out the data that we think is statistically significant.

    We do collect information on region but the data pretty much looks the same across the US. The bigger discrepancy is market size; next year we will add that to the survey. (North East is the same as West, but NYC is very different from Providence, RI)

    As far as gender and years of experience, we thought the same thing that someone commented. Unfortunately, the discrepancy in gender was consistent across all three survey options for years of experience. The reason we started listing median income by gender last year was to bring attention to the discrepancy.
  • Geoff thank you for the clarification, I'm sure the more awareness, as Guildsomm is doing, the faster this can be corrected. As a first time participant, I was unaware of the history survey and the why of its changes.

  • Thanks for the clarification Geoff.
    That was exactly my point, maybe express in a passionate manner, but exactly intent to draw more attention on the case rather than winging about my past professional experiences, that likely were all positives.
  • Vlada, I would like to see that, too. I would want to see it because I've worked in both Louisville, KY and San Francisco and know that the pay is WAY different. I make far more in SF, and at the same time I have less disposable income than ever. Which is because I spend 3x the amount of money on bills and rent.
  • Very few things beat SF though! ;-)
  • It would be interesting to see the correlation coefficients for some of the major factors here. E.g. As someone commented, to see how gender and experience correlate, if at all.
  • Greetings!
    I am in the process of asking for a raise at the current company I am with, and am not sure how exactly to go about it. At the moment, I am compensated with a hourly base rate, along with commission of sales during the weekend nights which I work the floor. I recently received my first level of certification (CMS), and was curious as to if this was a valid reason to have a meeting about a raise. Some feedback would be greatly appreciated. New to the whole process and protocol of approaching upper management about this. Thanks!
