John Moore Posted January 5, 2006 Report Share Posted January 5, 2006 StatCan claims that managers in Alberta earn $31.49 an hour. During fifty five day work weeks of forty hours each you will work two thousand hours for a total of $62,980. You should consider that pilots are rated third in America's Ten Most Dangerous Occupations. This has got to be worth another $5 an hour or $10,000 a year. Knowing the helicopter business as well as I do, I can guarantee that you will work more than 2000 hours a year. Its not so bad if you get paid for the overtime but if you are on salary you will not. You should also negotiate annual vacation and days off. Make sure that your employer pays your medical premiums for you and your family. A dental plan is also nice. Some outfits match your contributions to RRSP's. Get an annual cost of living increase. Get everything is writing. This is vitally important. Nobody does anything these days without written contracts. Your annual salary should be at least $75,000 a year. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
