So, after a couple of years, how are the hourly wages for HP techs doing?  Going up, down, or sideways?  Road techs, utility house techs, disposal site techs, DOE techs, all are welcome to reply.   ;)

Hanford Jr HPs start at 26ph and ends at 33ph. After that there is a 2 step increase for SR pay currently at 37ph and every year there is a 4% increase in pay. Leads make an additional 5% and supervisors 10%. Oh and a trainee with a DOE core and no experience starts at 23ph.(trainee jobs are hard to find however)

Pick your sites wisely and to be a JR, these days is very hard, not only wage wise also trying to get your time in. But it's a lot better wage wise than it used to be. pbooth

It sucks to get started in RP unless you have a connection.  Lately it seems like as long as you know an RPM or a supervisor somewhere you can start as a JR with absolutely no nuclear history.  Then you can sit at a SOP with a chip on your shoulder like you are someone despite the fact you dont know anything.  (seen too many of them lately.)  If you want to be an RP, and you actually WANT to be good at your job, just take whatever JR jobs you can get.  In my experience, if you work hard, show people you want to learn, do your job and keep your mouth shut, do the resume builder jobs, and have a good attitude, then work will come find you.  In the last 3 years I have met and worked with way too many JRs that feel entitled because they know someone, yet they dont want to work or prove that they are worth much more than the chair they sit on at the SOP.  Just my opinion.  Work hard, ask questions, prove you want to learn, and have a good attitude and you will be fine. (with that being said, if you run into that SR who feels the need to treat you like a POS because they think they are still in high school and they are the senior and you are the freshman, well, feel free to tell them off)

 Radiationman85, thanks for your comments.  That's the information I was looking for on this thread.  It would appear that my post last week got deleted in the shortening of this old thread by the moderator (kudos to you, tell Mike you deserve a raise!), which I think was done to bring the new data in against the old.
pbooth & nickscott13, while your opinions are valid they belong elsewhere.  We need money numbers here and other stuff really does detract.

Steering this thread gently back to course... is the listed wages for Jr and Sr HPs at Hanford par for the power plant industry?
What's pay like in DOE?
What's pay like at disposal sites?
What's pay like at .......?


PS   Thanks, Narlin. ;)

Ah, yes pay rates.  I just became an 18.1 last spring.  While I was on the road working commercial as a JR, you could expect anywhere from $14.50 - 21.50 per hour depending on your classifacation as a JR.  Jrs < 6 mos normally 14-16.  Jrs 6-12 mos normally 14-18.  Jrs > 1 year, normally 16-22.  This of course is the traveling rate with whatever the contract gives for per diem included.  It really just depends on the plant.  For example, Point Beach has a structured JR scale like what I mentioned above, but St. Lucie pays 15 no matter your time.  It also depends on if the plant takes 18.1s or not.  You just have to do your homework.  Talk to the recruiter.

Pay rates here at Columbia are $38.06 for Techs and $40.91 for Leads.  Annual raises depends on the contract year (3-4%).............and thanks to our 180 day outage (that was supposed to be 70) you wont find a Tech who hasn't made at least $140,000 this year.  Some of us lucky folks have made $160,000+  :D

While I didn't have a chance to read every post on this referenced thread, I did scan them and didn't see any amounts that would reference pay rates on the site.  So, I'm wondering why HydroDave63 would post this information on this thread, bored and trying to stir a pot?  Or potted and trying to stir a bore?

You can expect $22-$25 hour,$80 -$100 per diem a day, $1-$3 an hour in bonus's.

There are a few exceptions as a contract tech ,bonus's at  dc cook are $3000-$3500 ,diem at ip2 and pilgram are around $135 a day.Fermi,millstone,and i think fitz may have given some good bouns's in the past can't say now.
Duke power pays the lowest in the country!
I thought slave wages in the south had been abolished ,but I guess not in the DUKE SYSTEM!
Florida plants, dc cook,wolf creek,clinton,and of course diablo pay the best hourly wages.

Good luck with that whole contract hp thing.

This is a quote from a very old post of seven years ago.  I saw in Ohio at Perry today posted the wage for a senior tech is $25/hour.  It seems with the minimum wage going up to $10/hour, a senior tech wage has not changed much while inflation has.  Is this makings of the slow death of our industry, with wage deceleration?

If that is the case give another 30 years and the pay will equal the minimum wage.

Candidates:
Must be in PADS system and have worked in a commercial power plant within the last year, and have current NUF RP certification.
Must be able to carry 50 pounds.
Wear protective clothing in hot or cold environments.
Must be able to climb ladders.
Must be able to pass all required site specific exams.
Must be physically fit to be able to wear respiratory equipment

If the Senior HP tech could do all this and worked at a NPP with NUF during the last year, why would they settle for such a wage?  It sounds like they should be happy with whatever they can get for this wage.
