    Manager FAQs

    What is a good salary for a manager?

    A good salary for a manager is $70,000 per year or more. Depending on the industry, management roles can earn salaries as low as $40,000 per year and as high as $150,000 per year.

    Because the responsibilities and qualifications of a manager are so different from one industry to another, it is difficult to predict the general expected salary of a manager.

    Managers who work in retail, food preparation, or hospitality often make smaller salaries than those in corporate settings. Seniority is also a huge factor in determining the expected salary of a manager.

    Although a manager already has a more senior position than those working under them, the difference between salaries at different levels of management is often huge. An assistant manager will generally make a lot less than a regional or district manager. As a management job moves up the chain of command, the expected salary increases.
