East cost job at $30 per hour
« on: 07-27-2012 -- 11:29:39 »
Hi guys, I am leaving my current position and I would like to find a replacement before I go since I am the only calibration tech, they pay at $30/hr and the job is prety easy. need to calibrate 4 items per day, most of them are pressure gauges and temperature. Location of the job is in New Jersey in a Pharmaceutical company. for more info you can PM me or send me your resume to gbl25@aol.com

So a tech would make $30 a day.  Not trying to be rude, but that doesn't sound right.  Most techs sould be able to cal 4 pressure gages in an hour, easy.

First off, if your really calibrating a precision test gauge with full data and hysteresis then you would be hard pressed to do 4 an hour, actually 1 an hour seems fairly reasonable, assuming that these arent run of the mill 3 2 3 gauges.
Got to remember that not everyone works third party cal.
Secondly, this is a pharma job then you dont really know what all this tech has to do to get to the gauge needing cal.
Also alot of places refer to many types of tools and equipment as gages,

Seem like a nice opportunity for someone

ditto with kalibrator. Pharma is a completely different world from commercial cal. Many times the BS getting to the item takes 3 times as long as the calibration. And some places require a witness for every step with full written documentation of everything.

If you feel the position would be beneath you, then don't apply.

the pay is $30/hr depending on experience, which is like $120per day, and yes you shold be able to do 4 in an hour, but then you would have nothing to do the rest of the time, that's why I said is a very easy job, plenty of time to take breaks and surf the net

Yes you are right, actually the paperwork takes longer than the actual calibration

I never said the position was beneath me, just sounded too good to be true.  I would love to do something like that for that kind of money, but I already have a job.

What I meant was tongue and cheek.  The amount of work that the OP said is done in a day seemed like about an hour's worth.  Don't calibrators have a sense of humor anymore?

the job is with critical manufacturing machines and they want someone present all the time. but there isn't enough work to keep you busy full time, but you need to be on site in case of an emergency, like a thermocouple that breaks, or a pressure sensor that goes bad.

You getting pay for knowing what to do when something does happen, not for what you do.

Yeah, that's like a lot of plants we do on-site jobs at... The operators pull 12 hour shifts, 7 days on, 7 days off, some have six figure salaries, and all shift long they're doing basically nothing. But when something breaks, crap hits the fan, and they're busting their rump getting everything fixed, because every day the plant is down, millions of dollars in revenue are lost (and gas prices spike)...
