the prior mentioned Hotelmanager salaries, those numbers are some kinda fabulous.
I don't know most managers of the around 100 hotel properties in PC, but I know a good number, they live comfo in their 'own' hotel, yes, but for many the above mentioned would be a sweet upgrade.

Tropigas Truck Driver, 15 years on the same Job, 50K per month.

Sportfishing Charter boat Captain, youngest is over 15 years on that Job, 15K per month fix, plus the sold fishies(half for his Mate)and of course Plus the Tips, who are usually the biggest part of the Salary.

Mate on a charter Boat, depending on how long in the same company, between 8-12K per month, from 10K ahead he needs to be able to Captain the Boat/Replace his Captain on the Days off etc, plus half of the fishies and half of the Tips, those are always shared in equal parts between the Crew on each Boat working with me.

Driver for Transfers from hotels to the Marina, 10K plus Tips.

Priceless,
if I ever count the Bill on that Salary,

the Claro friend is clearly overpaid... with the lousy performance they deliver....

very interesting topic... gives a very clear view...

btw... the difference of what an USAID official employee earns, against what an employee working for a "sponsored usaid" agency earns, could indeed be huge...

absolutely,
it Will be Huge, depending on the destination of course.

anyways,
the salaries here in the country, for the same Jobs,
will also differe a lot from area to area and from business to business.

a very interesting Topic,
keep 'em coming

Could I get their names or the names of the hotels that pay this much?

No, but I can tell you that these guys are in the business for many years, get transferred around within the company worldwide every now and then. This is just international standard. Why should they come and work for less in the DR.
About the hotels? Well, just big international companies.

This is an even better response then I thought I might get. Thank you all and no we are not done yet..........

DR1 - can we make this a sticky please? I see threads constantly about wages.......


Hotel Managers in Punta Cana - yes those salaries are within the industry standards. The larger hotel chains - those GM's and other managers will be moved around internationally so I am not surprised.

Mike Fisher - you crack me up!!!! I am sure your wife is "priceless" she has to be............

How things have changed. I used to do that back in the days and the rate was 35 pesos/hr

he is a retired Cuban Teacher and comes to our place on his own costs, to teach just one person privately 3 mornings per week for one hour each of those days. I guess he spends 60-70 pesos of that for the Bus roundtrip, ha ha.
