It's a level 8 job in TD scale. Level 8 TD jobs pay between $56 600 - $84 600/ year as per Chart.

That’s a large range.

Does anyone know what the pay scale looks like post-articling for a position like this? (i.e., first year associate - 6th year associate)

You're not going to get to that salary unless you're GC and you'll be working a lot more than 37.5 hours a week.

The GC at TD Bank probably makes about $2-3M. You could report to the person who reports to the person who reports to the GC and you'd be in the $300K range.

Talking about salary not total compensation.

That's still VP level salary, which is several levels down from the GC.

(For anyone who makes this distinction, I suppose that is not "salary" as in your bi-weekly paycheque, but rather refers to expected annual cash compensation.)

What is a GC? And do you know how many hours someone in the 300k range would be working?

GC is General Counsel, which is basically the highest level legal employee in a company.

If you are making $300K, you are working whenever work needs to be done, whenever that is. It is not a 9-5 job.

(And by "making", I mean all your compensation, not just your salary that is paid bi-weekly.)
