NNPC pay and salary scale

It is almost impossible to find any hint on what the NNPC pay it's staff as it does not seem to be very eager to share their salary scheme.

On their official web portal, no hint on their salary scale is written and therefore it is very hard to find any reliable information pertaining to how they pay people but it's known it isn't meagre.

A website named Glassdoor, fortunately threw a spark of light on the salaries of NNPC workers. They claim to be a reliable source of information about various companies and employers. The downside here in their report for this subject is that it only had salaries for three job positions at NNPC.

How old this report is, i do not know but it is believed that the monthly salary of an intern at NNPC is from ₦13,000 to 14,000. A sales manager at NNPC  earns between ₦286,000 and 314,000 per month.  The ₦3,590,000 - 3,880,000 pay for an economist is not cleared to be per month or per year, but judging by the rest of the information presented on the website, it may be probably per year. 

This is not an official information and may be different from the real pay but you should be fulfilled as this has given a little bit more about the salaries at NNPC.
