Engineering Jobs Salary Distribution in Chile

Median and salary distribution monthly Chile Engineering

Abount These Figures: Salary Range, Median and Percentiles

The Engineering salaries in Chile range between 806,319 CLP per month (minimum salary) to 1,935,358 CLP per month (maximum salary).

The median salary is 1,400,001 CLP per month, which means that half (50%) of people working in Engineering are earning less than 1,400,001 CLP while the other half are earning more than 1,400,001 CLP.

Both are indicators. If your salary is higher than both of the average and the median then you are doing very well. If your salary is lower than both, then many people are earning more than you and there is plently of room for improvement. If your wage is in between the average and median, then things can be a bit confusing. We have written a guide to explain all the different senarios. How to compare your salary
