Salary Benchmarking Survey

Compensation is one of the top indicators of job satisfaction. Knowing how competitive the wages are at your foodservice department can be critical for employee recruitment and retention.

Conducted every other year, the NACUFS Salary Survey provides you with the average salary and wage rates for more than 30 key management and staff positions at collegiate foodservice departments, allowing you to benchmark your department's compensation data against those at similar institutions. 

The survey is free, convenient, and available exclusively to NACUFS institutional members. But only those that participate will receive the results. 

How does it work?

To participate, simply fill out and return the survey questionnaire with the salary and wage information from your institution.

Data submitted is completely confidential. Only the association's research firm will see the submissions and only aggregated data will be reported.

The salary survey is now closed. We will launch the next one in April of 2021.
