You're a Junior in HS and you make that? I'll be a freshman in college in 2 weeks and I make $100 a week at 20 hrs. It sucks but I love working here. The people are great.
yep me too, i just graduated, make $100 a week, but love my job

I work for a start up educational consulting company. I write proposals, give presentations to clients, and have meetings with potential business contacts and clients. I also train teachers on how to use the online classroom as well as tech support for the classroom too.

Back in 1989 when I got my first job, I made about $40 a week. By HS graduation I was making about $60 a week. I worked two nights (4 hours) and every other Saturday (8 hours) at a local independent drugstore.

Once my business gets off the ground I expect to start out making about a grand a month. Before summer I should be getting around three or four grand a month. Once summer hits and I have time to devote to it, the sky is the limit:D

I just started college but I hold the same job that I did in high school.

I get paid $17/hour managing all IT of this smallish company (43 employees) I work from 12-15 hours a week. I also do large programming projects revising our ordering/shipping/tracking/customer programs where I get paid a variable amount depending on the current project (outside company time btw), and I average about 20/hr while doing that at home.

I get paid about usually around $200 a week after taxes, and my programming projects I get about every two months worth $500-600 each.

What kind of business is it? i'm a junior also, sounds like a lot of money for someone our age to be making :confused:

The wonders of surplus electronics

All of the numbers that I stated are estimates, but they are based off very solid facts. I will know for sure how much I will be making in a couple weeks after I make my first purchase, but there shouldn't be too much variation. It also depends on how much time I have to dedicate to it.

How do you find jobs paying that much?? I'm currently an office cashier (customer service) at Publix...I've been there for almost a year now, and I get $6/hour. Next month should bring me up to $6.25, hopefully....so a 30 hour week gives me ~$150.

So...where do you work that pays $10/hour???
