Geez, I've been working here for 3 months, been promoted to head draftsman during that time when the other draftsman quit. I do everything here now, drafting, release drawings, update stock, enter items, etc. I was making $12 an hour as a temp. They inform me that I am going on permanent on Monday. Sounds good, right? Well, my health insurance doesn't start for another 3 months, which sucks because I haven't had any for the last 3 months. On top of that, they aren't raising my pay any! I have 2 more semesters till I have my degree, I am experienced, already have a minor in ME and drafting, and I am making $12 an hour? Not to mention the 30 minute commute each way, gas money, etc. If we had a few draftsman, I could understand, but I am the ONLY one! I should be making at LEAST $15 an hour! I'm a friggin solid modeler working with SolidWorks! I had a job offer I turned down in OK because I didn't want to move, but the pay was $25/hr. Man, I can't take this bull**** anymore. If anybody knows of any drafting/design jobs in the Greensboro, NC area, let me know!
