View Full Version : How Much am I Worth?

01-12-2002, 10:44 PM
I realize that you guys haven't ever met me, and living expenses differ around the country, but if you could give me a ballpark idea I'd appreciate it.

I have 5 years of service and installation experience including 2 years of experience as a foreman (75% residential 25% commercial).

My electrical and valve toubleshooting skills are top notch.

I have experience with wire trackers.

I have a good knowledge of the codes pertaining to irrigation systems in the area in which I work.

My plumbing is straight, leak free, and fast.

I have experience opperating Case Maxi-Sneakers, Dithwitch 410sx's as well as most landscaping and snow removal equipment.

I understand friction loss, water velocity, pipe sizing, wire sizing, matched precipitation rates and most other design concepts.

I have a class A CDL with air brake and double trailer endorsements

I am computer literate

I have a turfgrass pesticide applicator's licence

I am far from fluent in spanish, but I can effectively communicate to my workers information about pipe size, nozzle types, head types and wire types.

$12 / hour w/o benefits seems more than a little low to me :-(

I would say on the low side about $40000.00/year with a major outfit plus benefits and 401 k. IMHO
