It’s also looking for more workers. If you’re a good worker, you could earn as much as $35/hour.
Now, the biggest thing my boss will offer is free training to any engineer that wants to get involved. However… I have to do at least one online training session before we can even talk. I haven’t done the training since my last job. If I hadn’t gotten laid off then I wouldn’t be looking for this position anymore. The first month or so of my job, I did all of the online training and went to a couple of conference days. A lot of the things (like the pricing model) I was used to working with the last time I worked there.
This place is great for people like me who are tired of working for the same company for years and years and don’t want to give away a large chunk of their savings and benefits. While the pay is higher, some companies let people earn as much as $50 an hour. With a startup you can earn up to $100/hour (based on the new salary and starting bonus).
The salary for me is below what I was paid at my last job. There is a lot of redundancy as well. In my 1st month of salary I got my share of bonuses that went to all employees. While I work there now, I’m going to work through that bonus pool and decide how to contribute to the pool. If I choose to be in the pool, I’ll pay my share at the end of my first work week. While I do love working here, I want to make the most of it!
