  Before i elaborate the question let me say...Lets keep my politics and profile out of this. I would just like some answers and info please.  

NOW... as the question says, what is the going rate for a new station manager for a regional airline at a small airport? I expect its probably low, but also possibly somewhat higher than a bag handler or ticket agent. I ask because ive been asked for more information from a small regional airline who will remain nameless, but does A LOT of EAS flying, about a station manager position i applied for, and one of the questions, (one i might point out i HATE the most, as it seems like a catch-22 waiting to happen) is "what salary range would be acceptble for you at this position"? Even though i majored in Aviation Management, i have absolutely no idea what a station Manager makes, especially at small regionals...i have a good idea of what bag handlers and rampers make but not station managers. Im worried, because i dont want to look like an idiot, by putting a rediculously LOW or HIGH range on there.

So i would aprreciate any help on the issue, or any information on the going rate, per hour or annually?

Thanks in advance  PS: I dont understand why employers dont just say "this is what we pay...can you live with that"? instead of doing this tricky stuff...

It truly depends Aviacsa.

Here are a few questions then i'll post what I have below.

-How many flights per day is operated at the station? (on average)
-How many folks will be working for you? (guestimate if you don't know)
-Will you have both above and below wing or just one of them? (many mainline carriers for example have their own folks at check in and the gates but below wing is staffed by said connection/express carrier)

All of this is factored into what a GM/STM will make, plus your education and level of experience.

Anyway, this is what I pulled from a mainline carrier:

Salary range is $58,000 to $94,000 at their medium sized stations based on above and time with the company (these jobs never post externally from what i've seen). So, I would venture a regional station that is small would make maybe $40,000 to start and go upwards of $65,000. Only thing that sucks is you're salaried. Many of your guys may very well take more home /year with overtime.

And good luck to you.

What gets measured gets done.

I used to work for OO at BNA and ASE, and it all depends on the size of the station. Minimum I think was 45K a year then it goes up. It is true though you are salary with no overtime. We had one station manager change in my time there, and one of our supervisors took the job. I asked another sup why he didn't even apply for it and he said he would take a huge paycut, wih OT he said he made almost 70k a year. But being a station manager opens A LOT more doors for you as opposed to being just a supervisor. So I would say go for it, it's something to put on your resume, and is just another check as far as an airline is concerned.

I would imagine a station mananger at a hub airport would be making some good money? 120K+? I am talking AA at MIA, DL at JFK UA at IAD type managers?
