    Default How much do you earn per hour? What industry are you in?

    I'm a dog groomer and work on 60% commission. Works out to be about $40 an hour. But i also work at another Salon where i get an hourly rate of $28. Not making as much but less bookwork etc and dont have to see in/out customers and also working with very experienced groomers so i feel like im 'growing' by working there.

    I used to be a vet nurse on about $19 an hour. The reason for my change was clearly largely based on the terrible pay rates.

    You should feel confident, yes- but that will be apparent in the interview.

    Selection criteria can be a crock.
    In my experience, the language used in the selection criteria is required for report writing.

    I loathed receiving new staff who had addressed the selection criteria well, presented well at the interview, but I often had to rewrite their reports as they weren't written using the correct jargon... which they had displayed fluency in with their application.

    I know the company I worked for now gets applicants to fill it out right before the interview, on the spot.

    I tend to agree. Writing selection criteria just takes practice and some guidance. If you aren't able to answer selection criteria, you probably need to brush up on your writing skills.

    I guess it depends on the roster? My partner works 4 weeks on, 2 off and over the course of a year works about 10-20 hours a week above the average work week of 40 hrs, with 4 weeks annual leave. So really depends on the roster. He's on salary so gets the average 4 weeks leave.

    However, there are people who do work FIFO and do nowhere near the hours of 84 or 90 hours a week.


    I think it all depends upon which industry the worker is in
    It really depends on the roster. My fiancé used to do 21 days on (12 hr days) 7 days off but has switched to 28 days on 14 off but he still works on average a longer work week.

    Even time rosters are prob where more annual leave might apply. Most I know just get the standard 4 weeks a year.

    All good - been adressed in the thread - seems some get approx 4 weeks leave a year, and some get more. I certainly hadn't meant to suggest that FIFO don't earn the money they do if that was what was taken away from my earlier post.

    A PP had asked about the rates that FIFO get and the issue of tax came up. The fact is that FIFO get other allowances so that the hourly rate is skewed. I'd questioned about leave (given that some workers work different swings).

    1crazymoose answered this one well, quoting many different swing examples.

    I always found it interesting that when I graduated uni, I got a better rate per hour working casual rates in a shop (Target), and so continued to work at Target for about 2 years after graduating uni (until I moved to a rural town where there wasn't a Target).

    The problem was that once I got to the top rate at Target, there wasn't anywhere else to go, in the profession I'm in (with my undergraduate degree), I can continue to negotiate my salary given my experience.

    This I agree with also. Time after time I have heard employers mention how much they don't go for it.
