Nine seasons longThe deskFans saw Dunder Mifflin employees work hard to sell paper in Scranton, Pennsylvania. As with any business, not all job titles are created equal, and as such characters share differences in pay and lifestyle.

But who was the richest of the group? To calculate this properly, one has to take into account a lot more than what they received from Dunder Mifflin. From the homes they live in to the mistakes they've made at work to their shopping habits, who had the brains to bring home the most bacon and keep it there?

A customer service rep for Dunder Mifflin, having worked there for about eight to 10 years, Kelly was probably one of the lowest paid workers at Dunder Mifflin.RedditUsers suggest you make anywhere from $25,000 to $37,000, but what about your lifestyle?
The viewers don't know much about their life situation, but they explain it by thatLove for fresh clothes and trends,Most of Kelly's money is said to go into fashion and living beyond her means. She also paid a lot for Ryan, which could mean any extra money she has goes towards their relationship.
Pam Beesley is a hard worker when she sets her mind to something, but she was stuck for so many years that she didn't realize she wasn't doing really well. As a receptionist for over five years, sheprobably earning around $30,000 a year. But when he put his job on hold to attend art school, he inevitably lost money.
There was no money working part-time, and Pam spent her life savings on art school and living in New York. He later spent a few months without a salary.when he joined the Michael Scott Paper Company.Most of the money she made ($41,500) was as an office manager because she was bad at sales.
Since Kevin was originally interviewed for a position at the warehouse, Michael likely hired him as an accountant for a low price. As a professional accountant, Kevin probably makes between $37,000 and $50,000.

Trouble is, Kevin isn't the brightest when it comes to numbers (pies are another story). He invented his own number "Keleven" and accidentally committed fraud. However, he saved enough money from the show to buy Poor Richards. As a business owner, that makes you richer than Kelly and Pam.
Before Andy came to town, it was determined that Phyllis was the worst performing saleswoman on the team. Working with the likes of Jim, Dwight and Stanley was no easy task, but Phyllis was a true entrepreneur.

As an unlimited seller (before Saber bought Dunder Mifflin), Phyllis probably brought home around $40,000. She is also married to a very successful businessman who spent $1,000 just to hug her. Others might worry about money, but Phyllis seems very comfortable in her role, knowing she has Bob's income to support her.
As the second accountant in charge, Oscar probably made around $42,000 or more.He was very smart and good at his job.and often found bugs that Angela and Kevin missed.
When you see how professional Oscar is, it's obvious that he's good with finances in his personal life. He had a very respectable home when Dwight appeared on The Secret. And when Angela moved in with him, the aesthetic felt lush. However, at the end of the series, Oscar ran for state senator, which requires money. In general, Oscar may have had problems privately, not financially.
As chief accountant, Angela probably deserved a little more than her Oscar. The difference between them is that Angela apparently lost a lot of money when she got divorced.She had many cats, a child in need of care, and was expelled from her home.
But when she married Dwight, Angela's stock soared. He was now co-manager of Dwight's beet farm and presumably helping him with his numerous properties.
As Regional Director for Dunder Mifflin, Michael Scott worked for the company for approximately 18 years. And though he asked Jan for a 12% raise after years of not getting a raise, he was more obsessed with the perks of the job than the actual salary. Unfortunately,When Jan lost her job and moved in with Michael, she took most of the money from him. He had to take two jobs before filing for bankruptcy. Things changed for Michael when Saber took over and he was given the opportunity to earn more as a salesman than as a manager, but the transition proved very difficult for Michael.
Over the years, Michael has been shown to be lousy with money (pyramid schemes, hiding money in his shoe, spending his own money on company parties...), butRedditYou think you won over $60,000.
Stanley Hudson is a quiet but strong character. You don't see him on many sales pitches, but he's one of Dwight and Jim's strongest salespeople. She was able to retire early, send her children to private school, and move to Florida.
Stanley was not a man living beyond his means.- unless it means winning and having dinner with a new friend - and he always had a plan for his finances. As a salesperson, your salary would range from $45,000 to $50,000 depending on sales.
Jim started working at Dunder Mifflin between 1998 and 1999, which means he worked for the company for around 14 or 15 years before going into Season 9.
As one of Dunder Mifflin's top sellers, Jim had the ability to save while living with roommates andHe had enough to buy his parents' houseHe and Dwight even came up with a plan to get more sales when Saber limited their income. Jim also received a raise when he became Michael's co-manager.
While spending countless hours and money pranking Dwight, Jim took charge of his money when he hooked up with Pam. He could give Athlead $10,000 of his own money, put his kids in daycare and own them. Jim wasn't the richest of the group, but he wasn't suffering.
Dwight has been with Dunder Mifflin for almost 20 years and is one of the most successful employees. He is not only always the best salesman in the office, but also strategic for the company. As he began making more sales with Saber, he took Jo's advice and bought property (i.e. the shopping complex where Dunder Mifflin was located). He also owns a 150-acre beet farm with a nine-bedroom house that he also uses as a bed and breakfast. He even said he had money buried on his farm just in case he was caught in a rut. He also received a raise when he became a regional manager in Season 9.
As eccentric as Dwight is, he is by far the most successful.
