The webmaster blog explains how to get this additional information from your job listings on your web site into the job search feature in Google search.

(1) Salary information requires the baseSalary property within the job postings markup to be added.

(2) For salary estimate information, but not specific salaries, use occupation structured data instead Google said.

(3) For better location information make sure to populate the jobLocation property within the job postings markup.
