The City of Albany's workforce consists of approximately 135 full-time employees working in about 90 job classifications.

Job descriptions when created or modified for each classification are approved by the City Council. The salary range for each classification is also approved by the City Council at creation and annually as part of the annual budget process. Job descriptions and salary ranges for each classification are a matter of public record.

The HR Office administers the compensation system and assists in salary administration. Salaries are determined during contract negotiations with the bargaining groups or annually with City Council for the unrepresented employees. Most positions have a five-step salary range. Salary changes are implemented for the following changes: salary range, salary step, promotion, demotion, employment status, incentive or assignment pay.

To view a Job Description for a position, click on the Job Classification title. Job descriptions will continually be added until all are listed on the site.

This listing of job classifications and salary ranges is provided as a service to prospective employees, as well as a resource for local municipalities performing salary comparisons.
