Pay for general managers varies widely, since the job title encompasses so many possible industries and responsibilities. General managers are typically paid much more than junior team members, as compensation for their additional work training, supervising, and coaching others.

There might also be opportunities to become a regional or area manager depending on the hierarchy of the company the candidate is working at.
If you want to make more money in your career as a general manager, it's important to understand what factors play a role in determining your salary. In addition to your on-the-job experience, holding a postgraduate degree in one or more business-related field, such as business administration or operations management can pave the way to quicker promotions and more responsibilities, resulting in a higher salary. It’s vital to demonstrate your leadership skills and build a motivated, cohesive team, so you should be aiming to excel in these areas. Depending on which sector you work in, obtain industry-specific training to help you demonstrate to your employer how you can benefit your company and increase its profitability. You will want to aim to be an asset to the company to put yourself in a strong position to negotiate a higher salary.
Negotiating a salary is an important part of the hiring process. Before you begin negotiations, you should have a specific salary range in mind. You can determine a reasonable range by researching average salaries for similar positions in your area and assessing your education, experience, and in-demand skills.
