Apple has over $80 billion in its pockets, but just how much does your average Apple employee make?

As you would expect, Apple really likes their art directors and makes them some of the highest paid employees in the company. You may remember that Steve Jobs always said Apple focuses just as much on design as on technology. Your average art director at Apple rakes in about $133,664 a year.

Here’s a list of some of the common positions in Apple and their salary.

  • Apple Store Genius – $38,937
  • Lead Genius – $38,353
  • Assistant Apple Store Manager – $49,176
  • Account Executive – $75,324
  • Financial Analyst – $81,523
  • Software Quality Assurance Engineer – $87,651
  • Business Analyst – $87,768
  • Systems Engineer – $94,119
  • Project Manager – $94,652
  • Mechanical Engineer – $99,900
  • Senior Systems Engineer – $101,794
  • Software Engineer – $103,883
  • Firmware Engineer – $103,985
  • Test Engineer – $104,926
  • Hardware Engineer – $105,316
  • Database Administrator – $105,382
  • Production Design Engineer – $116,019
  • Product Manager – $118,556
  • Senior Hardware Engineer – $124,893
  • Senior Software Engineer – $126,325
  • Art Director – $133,664

Obviously, company big wigs like Jony Ive and Scott Forstall make quite a bit more than what is listed above. We should note that Tim Cook, just like his predecessor Steve Jobs, is the worst paid employee at Apple, bringing in just $1 in salary.
