Haha on paper...$14.38/hr. Factoring in monthly bonuses, profit sharing, overtime, etc...it's a fair bit more than that.

I'm military so I'd have to do some complicated maths and like... numbers... half my income is non taxable housing/subsistance allowances so its more than it is on paper. I also pay nothing for full coverage health insurance with no deductibles so factor in that too. I think I calculated it out once that after taxes I am near $30/hr as an E-5. I will make substantially more when I hit E-6, like $1k per month more which might not be a lot for some on here but it is for me. I find out in June if I made it, I feel pretty good about it but if I don't make it there is always next year.

But take that $30/hr and then add on whatever I'd pay in health insurance premimums and tax on half that and there you go?

I just got hired with a local towing company for $22 an hour. over time after 8 hours so time and a half and double time after 40 hours per week.. They allow me to take the truck home and use it for personal as well with there fuel card obviously because if I get a call I have to go and they will pay 70% of my cell phone bill since I use it for my job.
After receiving $874 bi weekly for the past 8 months since I was laid off and between jobs, this $22 an hour makes me feel like I am doing good.. Just hope the job works out, only on day 2 haha

Hey you are doing better than a lot of ppl in this economy. $22/hour is not bad at all if you can log 50-60 hours a week with overtime and 70% of a cell phone bill can be $80-$100/mo if you are on a multi line plan. Plus no paying for gas or anything is huge. My father in law gets a similar salary at Honda but he usually logs 70-90 hours of shop time per week and can get near six figures per year if he keeps that average.

The downside to mine is that I need to move to a different division in order to move up, or just be patient. We're maxed out at 38 stores here, as opposed to other cities that have over 100 and counting. Because they treat us so well, and most management is fairly young, they have no motivation to move up. And the ones that are higher up don't want to leave. So there's a huge stalemate causing people to move out of state in order to be promoted.
Yeah my buddy who got his masters and owes a butt-load of money in student loans couldn't find a job. So I referred him where I work, and now he workes there too. But, he's still working at a much lower position than me....

And I'm salary, so Yeah........lol

No overtime pay here!

I love being salary honestly. This year we had I think 4-5 days where the base commander closed the base to non-essential personnel (I usually am essential but flying a desk for this current job I am not) due to weather and I did not have to worry about losing pay for those days.

Salary has its ups and downs. My buddy is salary. He works his butt off from about December to May, maybe 60 hours a week, but the rest of the year he works 30-40 and almost always leaves early on Fridays, lol. I'm scheduled at least 46 hours a week no matter what, sometimes 48 depending on my schedule, but never more. The worst part is that I don't get a Monday-Friday schedule until I make "1st assistant" or "store manager" position, which right now I'm two positions below.

I can honestly say in my 10+ years in the military I've been M-F with weekends/holidays off for maybe 3 total years in there. For the first 3 years I was lucky to even get one weekend day. My first 3 years we were on a 4-3, 12 hour schedule. I was on F/S/S/M and off T/W/T lol. My last year I finally got the option for one weekend day so I took S/M/T off so I'd get Saturday night to party, Sunday night to party, monday to be hungover and tuesday to finish detoxing lol.

Haha I've never had weekends off and I've been here for 3.5 years. I have W/T off. My old schedule I got off Friday at 11pm and didn't have to be back until 1pm Saturday. There were quite a few hungover Saturday shifts, lol. It sucks being in your early-mid 20s and having little to no social life.

I used to work 7 days a week, between two jobs. But once I got a good position, I quit the second job and gained some sanity back! Lol

Plus they flat out told me they weren't going to be able to help with college. So I looked for other options and joined the National Guard my senior year and it looks like that should provide me with my way to college. I leave for basic in June and hopefully when I come back I'll be on my way to WKU

I'm happy to hear my story is one you could look up to!

Interestingly enough, I'm the youngest of five so I understand completely what you mean in terms of money being divided up. Every year we were given a $25 budget for our birthday and Christmas shopping. As I grew up I just took the cash and saved it.

Good for you for taking action and directing your life in the manner you feel is best! I have old classmates that were in our situations, i.e college was too expensive, and so instead of seeking alternate routes they just shut down and stagnated. One of them still works the same job we had when we were in high school. At that time minimum wage was just bumped to $7.25 and the company policy is a strict .10/year raise regardless of performance. Sadly, that means she might be making close to $8/hr. In high school, that's great, not so much when you factor in bills and want to start a family.

I come from a strong military family and so I have the utmost respect for all the branches. So I tip my hat to you and thank you for the service you are about to do for our country and hope that it helps you attain your goal of attending WKU.

I own a computer repair store.

I charge $75 an hour for networking related issues and $55 an hour for consumer level stuff (Virus, malware removal, etc).

This week I worked 85 hours..

The last few weeks have been busier than normal with the new local government contracts, network audits and replacing outdated XP systems.

I pay myself $600 a week as some weeks are crazy busy, others are dead.

I pay out of pocket for insurance and retirement. Also have a few employees that make a decent wage.

If I could leave it for a normal job, I would. I applied for air traffic control with the FAA as one of my friends does that and does damn good for himself.

*Edit*
It sounds like I make beaucoup bucks, I really don't. Some months can be crazy (like this month) some months are nearly dead. I have done more these last 5 weeks than I did in 3 entire months last year. So it's very hit or miss.

This year however, I have already beat what I did last year in 7 months, so things are looking good.

Got to love that aspect of owning a business.

For XP no longer receiving security patches, that actually should be a good thing for you for the next 6-12 months I wold guess. I know for a fact a ton of banks still use XP, US Bank being one of them and they aren't exactly small!

There is still. Not sure why. Dentists are I think the current #1 on that list. My friend is fully qualified and pulls down $135,000 a year. He gets like 1 month paid vacation, 2 week sick days, amazing insurance, awesome retirement and from how he and his co-workers describe it, a pretty cake job that you actually only work maybe 5 hours a month.

Just for peace of mind and a normal schedule I would be down for that. The pay scale doesn't hurt either.

It's amazing the level of unpreparedness and just general lack of knowledge that businesses have when it comes to IT. From large corporations to small mom and pop shops running their businesses on Pentium 3 era systems running XP with no backups whatsoever. It's just scary.

The XP thing should keep me busy for the remainder of the year. Hopefully things slow down a little. Enough for me to get away for a week or so. That all really depends on the summer we have as I also manage my family's pool and spa business.

I work too much.

We have a family friend that lives out of state who, I think, retired in his 40s as an air traffic controller. Not bad.

Gah, comptuers... EVIL! I just passed A+ and got certs and now am waiting on my Remedy ticket to go through to give me elevated rights on our DoD systems. What does this mean? It means when comm pushes a Java update that royally ****s everything because they push the wrong one or 32 bit for a 64 bit system (or vice versa) or somehow manage to erase DBSign software from our commander's computer etc... I can just go in and install the right stuff myself vs having to put in a help ticket so someone at comm with elevated rights can do it for me.

Also I'll be able to put Chrome on my work computer which is always a plus. IE sucks a gigantic bag of crank.

edit: You'd also be amazed at some of the ancient IT the military uses and just how damn rickety our IT infrastructure is. Most comm squadrons including ours are worthless, at least in my experience. I equate a military installation IT network to the cardio system of a 45 year old male who eats McDonalds every day, does no exercise but its ok because he orders a Diet Coke with his meals instead of regular. Yeah...

Congrats on getting through the Comptia A+ so you can install Chrome on your own work computer. It was certainly worth it.

Chrome plus adblock, flashblock and adblock for youtube is the best.

That got me thinking on when I took the A+, I kept getting asked about the El Torito standard on optical drives. I was like WTF is El Torito, I'm not ordering mexican food. I asked one of guys I took the class with, he replied "Small bull" which of course was no help at all. I never once found anything to do with that stupid El Torito standard in my A+ books. I asked everyone in my class, my instructors, etc, nobody had ever heard of it. That was the only question I got wrong on the entire test.

If anyone is interested..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_Torito_(CD-ROM_standard)


Now onward to the Comptia Network+, Security+, MCP (Microsoft Certified Professional), MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer), ACMT (Apple Certified Macintosh Technician), CCNSP (Cyberoam Certified Network & Security Professional) and I'm sure there are a few others.

After you get those, you can come work for me so I can retire at 30.
