This can vary, depending on how much schooling and experience you have within the field of Human Resources Management. I would start by looking up a site called "Salary Indeed" (www.indeed.com/salary) and it will tell you the median salaries for particular positions, for the locations you are interested in.
This can vary, depending on which state you live in, due to the cost of living, etc. But, a good source to find out about salaries would be to go to www.indeed.com/salary. You would just put in the job title and the city/state or zip. It should list the low, median and high salary expectations for any position you are inquiring about.
Like with most positions, this is never an easy answer. I suggest you research the National Labor Board website, as well as websites such as Glassdoor.com for salary comparison.
