Copier Careers® Publishes 2014 Service & Operations Manager Salary Survey Results6 Aug, 2014
Minneapolis, MN, August 1, 2014 - Copier Careers® , a Minneapolis based niche recruiting firm serving the Document Imaging Industry for almost 30 years, just published their annual Service & Operations Manager Salary Survey.
This s publication reflects the responses of 1,772 Service Managers, Regional Service Managers, VPs of Service, Operations Managers, and General Managers who participated in our online survey over the past year. The survey measures how well these professionals are compensated, how satisfied they are in their careers, and whether their employers are empowering them to achieve their goals. Highlights from this year's survey include:
- Average compensation has stagnated. This is likely due to the number of longtime managers who have recently retired or been replace by less-tenured professionals with lower salary requirements.
- Workdays are longer.The average number of hours service and ops managers work each week has risen to an all-time high of 58. We believe this increase is temporary, and at least partially due to the challenges confronting today's service departments: if you want to modernize an entire department, you have to put in the hours to make it happen.
- Responsibilities are changing. As dealerships have transitioned to solutions-based business models, the service manager has become a facilitator, and the line separating service management from operations management has blurred.
- Priorities are evolving. Today's service managers have a new enthusiasm for leading-edge technology and big-picture business strategy.
