    $$$ Espresso Tech Wages $$$ OZ

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    "WITHOUT ESPRESSO TECHS.THIS COUNTRY STOPS"A big HELLO to all other,, Espresso Techs, Employers etc...
    I am trying to get some idea of the going rate for an experienced Espresso tech. Assuming they have experience of at least a few years on Commercial machines.
    Some tech will be either. A or B class Electricians, Restricted Electricians or Electronics Technicians, Maybe even just trained in this field with no formal qualifications... As i am to believe most of the commercial machines are plug in and not hard wired..
    From asking around i can assume any tech employed by a Coffee company will recieve.
    1. A Van and tools to suit the job.
    2, A Phone.
    3. A Uniform including, Boots.
    4. Base sallary of around $55k
    I presume some remuneration for Overtime. ie, after hour call outs Weekends and public holidays.. This will ussualy include an Allowance for being on call over weekends??
    Please help me to get some idea about what is being paid out there.

    Are you actually looking for a job...if so I may have something for you!

    I thought you need a class D license.

    as far as I know there are not many ppl making $150 per hour. ;D

    I am a Tech, who has been in the Coffee Industry for 8 Years. I know my way around most machines and can troubleshoot or reverse engineer most problems.. I have studied Electronic Engineering which involves " More detailed Circuits with Lower Voltages" than Electricians. I have also studied Industrial Design and hold a Test and Tag Ticket.

    I have been employed by a few leading companys and also as a contractor. I have great Coffee making skills and can both sell and pick up new accounts even though i prefer to use my hands..

    I am just trying to get some idea of my current worth in this industry, but all offers appreciated and will be considered.. He he..

    If youve been employed by a few leading companies and worked as a contracdtor I would think you already have an idea of your worth.

    Or have the rates of pay been so varied that you are confused?

    Youre happy but want more dollars - thats the impression Im getting. If thats the case then you need to come up with an argument as to why you are worth more...then talk to your boss before looking elsewhere. IMO more often than not, its a persons ability that attracts a higher salary...not a job title.

    All the best!

    I think its important to know where one stands.

    If you are worth $x and your employer pays you half that, even if you are happy, you could be doing better, i.e. working less hours and spending more time with the family, or having more holidays, etc.

    So I think its a valid question.
