What am I worth???
Posted by: j_pollard (

I am posting this ad to find out what Iím worth as an employee.
I believe I am underpaid and I donít really want to approach my new boss until I have some idea of what I deserved to be paid.

A little about myself........
I am 27 years old and I have been in the sign business for 7 years.
That may not seem like a long time to some of you but I take my job very seriously and I see myself doing this for the rest of my life.
I started out in a small vinyl and screen printing shop and later opened my own small shop. It only went about a year and a half before I had to close it down.

So now I have been hired on at a much larger shop that started out primarily as a textile screen printer. And it still is there primary business, for now. (that is all changing as we speak). Now they have a full blown sign shop with a digital machine, 4X8 automatic U.V, Etc.
They hired me on to run the digital department. Although I have never done this before I feel like I took to it pretty quickly.
The thing is, I'm not just the digital guy. I'm the ďSIGNĒ guy. I do all the digital work, all the vinyl work and all the screen printing work. Basically every sign that comes through this shop I made.
My department runs completely independent. I handle it ALL without having to get help from the top.
It is very lonely as I am the only one here.

I really like my job and this company is seriously going somewhere fast.
We even recently landed a state political race. We are a union shop as well and the owner here pays all of our union dues. The bosses are great as well as the other employees.

So you see, I love my job and don't want to jeopardize it by asking for a raise and not knowing what I'm worth.

So if you own a shop or are in a similar position please let me know what you would pay for someone with my experience and talents.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.

Also, This shop is in Texas if that helps any.
