Must be a lot of OT in there for 87K otherwise that equals about $42/hr at 40 hr a week for 52 weeks.
Not all that much.. I work 2 double shifts a week. And, in fact if I had maintained that for the entire year I would have made over 92k.
It's $26 an hour base. But overtime is paid at time and a half for the first 4 hours and double time for the last 4.5 (it's an 8.5 hour shift). So that's $390 total for the overtime shift. So 2 per week or 4 for the pay period equals $1,560 extra per check, $3,120 extra per month, an extra $37,440 per year. At $26 an hour my base is $54,912. Add $54,912 and $37,440,.. $92,352 So some weeks I did work the OT
and some I didn't, and ended up with slightly under 87k.
Also keep in mind I have 6 weeks paid vacation a year, so I'm hardly living at work..
It's not a bad gig
