I've read many posts here about the *starting wage* being from $8-12/hr for a PC Tech at Best Buy and such, but what I'm wondering about at the moment is what if you stay around for a while? What if you don't move up the corporate ladder and just use it to learn and support yourself through school? But for me I'm interested in something other than BB or CompUSA. Maybe a little computer shop that I feel comfortable in for a few years as I'm a loyal guy that's not into job hopping. Any ideas on the higher end of the pay scale once you really know your stuff?
So after 5 years, you're making a whopping $23,000 a year.
