    3 1/2 years is nothing experience wise. you are worth between $18 to $21 HR.

    to be honest, when I interview a tech with only a few years under the belt and he volunteers info like great trouble shooting skills or good management skills it turns me off. not picking on you, this may not even apply so don't take it wrong. I just find that they can never live up to what they offer, never. it never fails, these guy's turn out to be cocky and don't get along with the other guy's. I have been doing this a mighty long time and if I do say I am a great trouble shooter it doesn't feel right. when someone else says it I feel great until I remember some job I did a year ago and think, wow I can't believe how much I have learned since then. lol.

    What I was trying to convey is when you send me to a call, I don't call you saying what should I do. I'm able to handle 90% of calls on my own.

    I would say you'd probably be in the same ballpark doing supermarkets, AFTER proving yourself. But, I'm not sure. I don't do supermarkets.

    $1100/wk at 23 years old is pretty good, why do you want to leave? (Wait a min... is that for 90 hrs you speak of?)

    I want to leave because

    1- I have 5 bosses
    2- I drive a passenger van that's constantly in the shop
    3- I'm on call 24/7 so I can travel far on weekends.
    4- I'm on salary, so I can work 50-100 just really depends on week. But 50 minimum.
    5- I'm the supermarkets plumber, electrician, hvacr, mechanic, handy man, janitor, package delivery guy.
    6- I'm working on same equipment, so I'm not learning new things.
    7- most importantly, I'm the only tech for this company, so I don't have guys with more experience that can teach me new things.

    And no health coverage. I usually pay out of pocket when I'm injured

    1, salary should only be for Management.
    2, find another job. There are lots of supermarket gigs out there.
    3, if you want to do something different(commercial/industrial), you have limited experience, and you will most likely not get that in the beginning.

    Pay will vary company to company, let alone region to region. Some places put more emphasis on "time in the trade", rather than ability, etc. some places give you enough rope to either swing on to the hurdle, or hang yourself.

    I wouldn't be advertising you are single with no kids. Some companies will feel that you will get your check on Friday party all weekend and not show on Monday.

    Either way its none of their business what your status is, they should not even ask for that information.
