Salary for Desktop Support
cqlove Registered Users Posts: 6 ■□□□□□□□□□
I just got my first IT job which is an entry level tier 1 Desktop Support position. I will be making $15.00 an hr. Is this a respectable salary for starting off in IT? What do you guys make in Desktop Support? What can I expect to make if I make it to tier 2,3,etc...? Thanks again.

Myself I'm doing desktop support and pulling in just shy of 50k. I wouldn't really give myself a "tier" so to speak, but I have 4 years of IT support experience so it's all relative.
Depends where you live. I would think that would be considered average for a tier 1 support job. Tier 2 would be 20 an hr in my opinion.

I would take it. Get your foot in the door and put some money in the bank. You could probably do better, but you could do worse too.
$15/hr is definitely not bad starting out, though. Once you get some experience it opens up alot more doors.
Recent: 11/2019 - RHCSA (RHEL 7); 2/2019 - Updated VCP to 6.5 (just a few days before VMware discontinued the re-cert policy...)
Working on: RHCE/Ansible
Future: Probably continued Red Hat Immersion, Possibly VCAP Design, or maybe a completely different path. Depends on job demands...
Yes the numbers are certainly higher, not sure how it all pans out if you consider all economic area's thats not my thing but just considering that quite often things are charged at the same rate in the USA and UK (a widget costing $10 also costs £10 here, which actually should be about the £7-8 mark if you actually use the exchange rate).
Dunno really though I'm in IT not in finance so couldn't really say. would be interested to see the average house price over there for a first time buyer and compare it with ours, what is it over here at the moment £200-300k for a 2-3 bedroom house something like that.
Saw a 1bed apartment for rent in London the other day for £800 per month. I guess that's nothing unusual for London.
That is crazy, LOL. I just looked at a house around here the other day...
4 bedrooms with an additional den
I really need to work harder and get out of the UK!
I've always wanted to go to the US too.
