Not surprisingly, those with a job — and those seeking a job – care most about how much they are going to get paid and what kinds of benefits are offered, according to a Glassdoor survey.

The Harris Poll surveyed more than 1,100 U.S. adults on behalf of Glassdoor and found the top considerations for both seekers and workers are salaries (67 percent) and benefits (63 percent), followed by the job’s location (59 percent), commute time (43 percent) and employee reviews in job ads (32 percent).
