How much do you make per hour? Where do you work? (in Off-topic)

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] October 24 2006 7:25 AM EDT

Hi! I am a delivery driver for Papa John's in Cascade MI. I generally work 6-10 hour shifts. However I think that my income is incredibly good considering the amount of work I do, and my amount of responsibility. I would like to see what others make and what they do for a living. Please post in a similar format.

Tonight I made $108 in tips. I had 21 runs, and I usually make between $70 and $130 so this is a high average.

I worked 8 hours.

I get 45 hours a week. (overtime over 40)

I also made $6.95 per hour (as per a new Michigan law)

That makes out to be $20.45 per hour before gas. Granted this is at the expense of my vehicle, which I put over 100 miles a day on. Considering I usually get about 20 miles to a gallon of gas, (in my '94 Lumina APV no less). That amounts to about 6 gallons to be generous at a high average of $2.25 in my area. So a daily cost of $13.50 in gas. Making my gross $94.50, plus $6.95 per hour equals $18.76 before taxes, yet I only get taxed on about $9 per hour of my wages since we claim our credit card tips. I consider this pretty amazing since the worst I have to do is wash a few dishes. I am also curious which professions would offer competetive wages were I to be so inclined.

BTW this was a monday night closing shift. (Notoriously slow)

AdminShade October 24 2006 7:27 AM EDT

I make €10,08 per hour without some small bonuses...

But this is a part time job which I do along besides my study.

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] October 24 2006 7:30 AM EDT

sorry shade I don't understand what denomination that is. Could you provide an american equivalent?

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] October 24 2006 7:33 AM EDT

How is the rest of your compensation package?

Sick time, vacation time, holidays off, holiday pay, health insurance, vision and dental coverage, life insurance, Long Term Disability coverage, Short Term Disability coverage, matching investment in your retirement account, Wellness Plan, pretax account for child and healthcare, child care -- on-site or discounted, etc.

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] October 24 2006 7:37 AM EDT

To answer your question no.... I get one weeks paid vacation per year that's it.

AdminShade October 24 2006 7:37 AM EDT

Haven't you heard about Euros?

Anyway CB apparently doesn't accept the € symbol so I make 10,08 Euro per hour + some small bonuses which make it a total of 12,87 Euro per hour.

bartjan October 24 2006 7:39 AM EDT

Shade: € is the HTML symbol for euro...

AdminShade October 24 2006 7:40 AM EDT

bartjan: thanks, I just found out :)

AdminG Beee October 24 2006 7:48 AM EDT

/me makes about $0.30 per hour less than wifey spends...

Mrs Beee October 24 2006 8:38 AM EDT

lol so stop playing this game and make me some more!

I am a nursery nurse and work a 31 hour week. (G calls this part-time)

I get about £6.20 an hour. I get 20 days holiday plus the christmas week off. I also add to this my childcare costs which would run into the £400 a month mark.

Don't forget all of G's wages aswell. :)

PirateKing October 24 2006 9:15 AM EDT

I work in a coal mine with the cruelest overseer in history. I get paid in moldy bread crusts. What's a "benefits package"? :P

QBJohnnywas October 24 2006 9:17 AM EDT

I don't get paid a lot, but it's enough considering how much of my time I'm getting paid to play CB....

PirateKing October 24 2006 9:20 AM EDT

"I don't get paid a lot...."

So does that mean no party at Johnnywas' house? :(

QBJohnnywas October 24 2006 9:50 AM EDT

There's always money for partying!

The value of your hourly/weekly/monthly/annual wage depends on the amount that is outgoing. If you're earning 100k a year but your outgoings are 90k then you're not getting paid a lot!

AdminShade October 24 2006 10:05 AM EDT

Johnny, then I'm getting paid nothing, everything I earn is spent already.

QBJohnnywas October 24 2006 10:10 AM EDT

Shade, I know how you feel...:/

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] October 24 2006 10:10 AM EDT

Uh-oh, we've got Johnny started on the principals of economics.
I get enough of that in my Uni module of the same name >.<
No, not Johnnywas, Principles of Economics ;P

QBJohnnywas October 24 2006 10:12 AM EDT

Hey, I was just moaning about the state of my bank balance, not starting a discussion on economics!

Never mind, always look on the bright side of life eh?

AdminShade October 24 2006 10:19 AM EDT

It gets spent good, so indeed the bright side :)

bartjan October 24 2006 12:01 PM EDT

I can play CB at work ;)

Relic October 24 2006 1:24 PM EDT

I make around $45 USD/hr 45 to 50 hours a week. Occasionally I will take on contract/consulting jobs in my spare time and make up to $60 USD/hr. But considering I have a $2400/month mortgage payment. I need to make a lot. :P

Relic October 24 2006 6:41 PM EDT

I forgot to mention that I work at a software development company as the Director of Development.

NotSuitablForChildren [Yeeeaahh.................] October 25 2006 7:14 AM EDT

So far only Glory has outmade me. That seems to be a promising position. I am about to take over the direction of marketing and become, our director of marketing. I should stand to not even have to worry about money mcuh after that. BTW tonight I made

$87 in tips

112 miles at $2.25 at 20 mpg= $12.60 in gas

with gas it is $16.25 per hour

Again pretty amazing.

AdminShade October 25 2006 7:50 AM EDT

So all this thread's purpose is to brag about how much money you or somebody else makes?

*is happy with what he gets payed and the life he can live with it even if it isn't much*

Roughneck October 25 2006 9:10 AM EDT

i work on an offshore oil drilling rig. My schedule is 14 days on 14 days off,12 hour work day,so i normally work 84 hours a week,so thats 44hrs time in a half.My meals are free and travel to and from work is paid,and the catering crew even cleans my room and makes my bed.So i think i have a pretty neat job.

chuck1234 October 25 2006 9:12 AM EDT

Since I am in some kind of admissions limbo [being underaged for the next course and having qualified from the previous one precociously], I think I can qualify to be an employable person.

I put in work to assist my elder sister's first teen novel/ magnum opus, and she will be paying me 10 percent of her take; considering she's set on selling at least high six figures, i hope to make at least a hundred grand, in US dollars. That's coming up sometime April 2007, so its 7 months from now, meaning i make kinda US $14k per month based upon these calculations [100k coming after 7 months].

Only of course, its not money in the bank atm, but it'll be soon enough :)

Hope this helps.

QBOddBird October 25 2006 10:23 AM EDT

"So all this thread's purpose is to brag about how much money you or somebody else makes?"

Looks like a pretty fair assessment to me, Shade. xP

For myself, I don't have a job. I'm a college student who sings/dances in a showchoir/choreographs a little/does the set and gets his tuition paid that way. So far as making what little spending money I've got, I'm hired by said college as part of their Student Support program, working whatever hours I choose for $10/hr. I also take private tutor appointments by phone and charge $15-20 per hour for those.

I make decent money for what time I do work, but I work as little as is necessary ~_^ and after books/fees/gas/food/girlie, I come out even or a little under. ^_^

Can't say I'm really bragging, but I like coming out about even and getting to choose the hours I work. Convenience = happiness!

matteo48 October 25 2006 1:22 PM EDT

Atm i am a paperboy and earn 10 a weeks, gets me by as my parents pay for my sport!

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 25 2006 1:32 PM EDT

Last time I checked, I make around 3mil every couple months.

...oh you mean real world money!

I'm not sure, probably like $1/hr writing monkey code!

RedWolf October 25 2006 8:12 PM EDT

Well, I work at a gun club (trap shooting) and score for the various shooters, in addition to picking up their shells at the end and loading up the trap houses. I only work once a week for about 4 hours and usually get paid between $20 to $25 USD. And that's only April through August, and maybe a couple weekends in the fall.

But that's enough money for me since I don't *need* money for anything yet ;-)

Gandalf October 28 2006 10:38 AM EDT

i am also a paper boy just got payed 30 this week.Did a few extra rounds which doesnt hurt me at 14 30 is quite alot i think. + pocket money off mum/dad and nanner so a week i get around abouts 45-50 pound depending on paper round.

AngryZac October 28 2006 11:12 AM EDT

I work at a university and am the Inventory and Receiving Manager. I don't make as much as a manager is supposed to, I make around 35k per year. Funny thing is I'm actually looking to enter the type of work Roughneck is doing....soon enough.

NotSuitable, you do make good money per hour, but that profession isn't one that everyone could do...mainly because a lot of us require having Insurance, sick leave, dental etc.

Thraklight Resonance October 28 2006 3:33 PM EDT

I make $22 an hour right now as a Natural Resources GIS Coordinator. I accumulate 6.9 hours of paid vacation time and 4.6 hours of paid sick leave per pay period (I have 625 sick hours accumulated right now and am saving for my first heart attack). I receive comp time or overtime for anything over 40 hours in a week. My employer pays 90% of the cost of my health, dental, vision, and disability benefits and contributes 14% of my salary per year toward my retirement fund (I also contribute 9% of my salary to the fund). I can retire after 30 years of government service, receive 66% or more per year of my top three years' salary average until someone has to bury me, and I can work in the private sector for additional income if I need to do so.

I can't play cb at work except for rare occasions on the weekends when I'm not being paid to work.

UncleKracker October 28 2006 9:13 PM EDT

Well... I'm a high school student so I don't have a real job... But...

I make $800 in 5 hours -- only twice a month since I don't want to oversaturate my market. I buy a couple products cheap, and sell them about 10 times what I get them for. Works great.

I also sell candy during school... and I got people who sell candy for me too... I make about $15 a school day. Not bad considering it takes me a few seconds to do.

Flames Fame November 12 2006 5:01 PM EST

I sell Kirby Vaccums and i get senior dealer pay which is $498 per pop. average of 15 a month which is really easy $7470 a month plus a free Kirby which retails at $1698 and i get full proceeds, so 8 months of this and what do we about 72K in 8 months. It's not the greatest job but it works.

AdminG Beee November 12 2006 5:14 PM EST

I'd say it sucks Abhorsen.

Heh, get it... Kirby vacuum sucks. Oh nvm, why do I bother... Hoovering

TheHatchetman November 12 2006 8:53 PM EST

does G Beee ever post more than once in a thread without a picture? Anyway, on topic, i stock shelves at Dollar General for $6.50 an hour. this job sucks. They call me in on my days off, schedule starts saturday morning, and its often not out until Wednsday (not 3 days early, but 4 days of playing it by ear...). Some weeks i work up to 50 hours, others i work like 11. People, if ur ever offered a job at Dollar General, DECLINE, if at all possible

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] November 12 2006 11:37 PM EST

I am currently studying, and the government pays me 350$/month for that :)
