    Out of trade school we start our service techs at $18.00 hr, no experience helpers start at $15.00 hr, our highest paid tech makes about $42.00 hr. we are a non union company. I have been in the trade for 40 years and never worked union. I have nothing to say bad about union, its a choice you need to make. Union is good for a lot of reasons, but not for everyone. We stay busy year round. Find a good solid company and keep your mind open to learn, never think you know it all. NO ONE DOSE!!!!!!

    Around here you start as a helper at 10 bucks an hour, maybe 11 if you already have your EPA. Once you get your own van and start PMs or something like that you are 12-14 and installers a little higher. Techs generally get paid 18+ hourly rate, plus comission depending on the shop

    wow, we have it great up here in canada. i just became a journeyman early this year, and im on pace to make 100k this year, summer hasnt even come yet! package pay(wage, rrsp, vacation pay, tool allowance) is about 50-52/hr. i couldnt imagine making 12-20/hr like ive been reading. of course the cost of living is cheaper in the usa, but i dont think its THAT much cheaper

    edit: i didnt read the original post. helper is $12 to start, after you get endentured as an apprentice(after about a year) you get 18 then a raise($1-2) every 6 months until journeyman.

    Around here average would probably be 41-45/hr with benefits for Union, Haven't seen a non-union pay even close to 1/4 that around here. But yet they charge pretty close per hour on the job as most union company's. Sounds like greed to me.... I was making 39.6/hr gross. 24.6/hr on the check at the local refinery here, and the company I worked for only made around 10-15/hr off of me.
