Press Secretary — $183,000
The Press Secretary is probably the toughest job in Washington DC. For this reason, it’s also one of the highest-paid gigs. The Press secretary is basically a spokesman. The person behind this role is responsible for collecting information about acts held by the White House and delivering them to the global press.
The position received a slight salary bump since it was held by Josh Earnest in 2016. Back then the role only paid $176,461 per year.
Director of Stenography — $95,500
While most White House positions have a turnover that aligns with the president’s term, the Director of Stenography is one of the few jobs that don’t have a political agenda. This position is responsible for a team of stenographers who take notes on all official White House meetings for the press.
Up until 2016, the annual salary for this role was $117,846 per year, and it seems that the ranking has dropped over time, as today, only $95,500 are earned.
Social Secretary — $168,000
Considered the least controversial job in the White House, the Social Secretary is basically a glorified event planner. They’re responsible for executing all of the social events held in the White House, such as the Christmas tree lighting and the Easter egg roll. A great position in our opinion!!!
The role pays $168,000 per year, which is far more than what the Secretary made in 2016. The position paid at the time $119,723 which in our opinion, is not rewarding enough for the person behind the staff's morale.
Advisor to the President & Senior Advisor — $0
The advisor to the president and senior advisor is responsible for advising the president on strategic planning. This position can have two people performing under the same role (like in the good old Trump days) when Ivanka was responsible for policies regarding women's issues. We suppose it's best a woman handles woman's issues.
They don't get paid much for this role. In fact, the annual salary is $0 as this role is usually performed by people with zero experience working in government.
Executive Assistant to the President — $120,000
The Executive Assistant to the President is responsible for reading and responding to all of the president's correspondence, scheduling meetings, arranging certain functions, and welcoming visitors to the White House.
As the president's right-hand person, the role pays $120,000 per year and likely deserves every penny.
