Hey Guys I had a job offer at a local store for a Computer Repair Technician. the hours was 8 to 4:30 pm, 6 days a week and the salary was $150.00 per week and 20% of all repairs done. I immediately turned the offer down. What do you guys think? Would you have taken the Job?

    That's $3.12 an hour. I'm not sure about the Bahamas, but that is well below the minimum wage in the US.

    I think it would depend on how busy the shop really was. If they could prove support 5k to 10k a week in service and i made 20% of that I'd do it. If not probably not.

    I talked to the owner about having my network + he said that he needed to do his network + so i could clearly see that he dosen't value the time i put it to study and pass these exams to get me in a better position to work for this type of company. when i asked there where literally no benefits. at all.

    Honestly, at the wages he is offering and everything else just form your own company and get to work. You will probably make more.

    Yeah, I'd stay far away from a place like that, working for less than 5 dollars an hour, depending on where you live I can't imagine they do 5k-10k in repairs a week and if they do get a few weeks like that it doesn't sound sustainable. I'd look for something a small helpdesk or larger company who can pay you a living wage and get experience.

    Truth be told there are places in the Bahamas that pay excellent for various I.T positions. that's why it was a shock when he offered me that salary. it was an insult to my intelligence. I already did repairs on my own and make that amount in couple hours. lol what a joke.icon_lol.gif
