FYI. . . If you want to break through the glass ceiling, you'll need a BS or higher to become than just a bench tech.  We're highly trained already, but it only helps our job outlook to have an education beyond AA/AS.  Most PMEL techs across the country only make between 18-28 per hour.  You'll make ok money as a trained PMEL tech, but w/o the BS or higher, you're really selling yourself short.  I personnally don't know any tech who makes more than 55k per year.  For those in the military, you don't have a good excuse not to take advantage of the 100% TA or GI bill.  GET THAT DEGREE!!!

Any chance of getting some locations of your job openings? Particularly in the Northern Alabama/Southern Tennessee area?

Sorry- just signed up on these forums and there are a lot of posts to look through to find job locations. . . . . .

 Almost every tech I know makes more than $55k a year w/o a BS. I have a Degree in Theology,but it doesn't help me LOL.

once you have a BS, why would you stay a bench tech?  i do make more than 55k and love working on the bench.  having been the "man" for a while, it is a nice break.  when i do decide to go back to the dark side, i have no idea what a degree would do for besides "pad" a resume.  if your lab manager is also the business manager, then i guess a degree in that would be useful???

It looks like you wasted your time getting that theology degree.  Maybe with a few years at any given company, you'll be at 55k+, but most companies start PMEL techs below 45k.  High cost of living areas don't count.  Garbage collectors sometimes make more than our bretheren.  If you have a RELEVANT degree in a science with management, then you have a lot more promotion potential.  Can't say I want to be a 50-60 year old bench tech.

 Some may say that I wasted my time on a degree in Theology, but I don't. I didn't get the degree to further my career in Metrology anyway. I have used my Theology degree for 8 years as a part time youth minister for a very large church. I may do it again in the future and I really enjoyed the subject. Also if you noticed the LOL after my post that was used to show a level of facetiousness.

I'm a cal tech in a big Pharma company but I have to say I do more than just bench work.   I also do some engineering stuff/backup supervisor/etc.   I have a BASEET degree but always looking for opportunities.   I've been at this company for 16+ years with no military experience.   I've been trained in temperature, dimensional, electrical (DC/LO RF), pressure, optical, humidity, mass, analytical, air flow, etc.   I've worked with reference standards like temperature fixed points, Thunder 9000 generator, spectrophotometers, etc. 

Carrie - Got anything in IL/WI area?  We have 10 Standards Labs techs and about 50 area shop techs.   I average 85K a year with about 10% OT and minimal travel.
