The only CEO's making 200k or less are at startups that are going to fail.  Every Director + at my company of 50k people makes more than 200k.

Yeah, but even the CRNA’s and NP’s are doing pretty good.

Buddy is a CRNA and he’s making over 200/yr with none of the MD headache.

Ortho sales used to be pretty good. Used to be…

I'm a mechanic and make between $130-150 hr (plus margin on parts), but I rarely work more than 20-30 hours so annual isn't huge, but that's by choice. Big benefits by being self employed and having my shop at home. It's easily a 6-figure benefit offsetting my wife's income tax and our property overhead...


That's revenue before expenses though, right?

I didn't know shop rates were that high. What vehicles do you fix?

@CIE


@peacematu See, that's an interesting question. I would have said that you were correct 5 years ago when I owned a shop in a building that I leased, but I charged significantly higher rates. I'm currently working from a shop on my property. It was there when I bought the property, so very little startup capital needed (less than $10k). It takes a while to get there, but I started this shop with all of the tools I needed. I have changed and upgraded over the years, but it's all a write off.

So yeah, I clear easily $130/hr with parts profit. Also, everything in my life is a write off down to the new tractor I bought to clear snow around the shop and access road. My truck, my car, my car trailer, a percentage of my home (and property maintenance). All written off.

I am a specialty German car repair guy, but these days I'll do anything. Right now I have a 1973 2002 that I built an engine for and I'm doing a full engine compartment restoration. I also have a Land Rover Discovery that I'm doing a lift and front end rebuilt. Last week it was a Honda Pilot suspension and timing belt job. I'm a Tire Rack dealer, so I'll sell tire/wheel packages and tires. Some of the sales side is great, too. I make $500 on a wheel/tire package without much work (mount them on the vehicle when the package comes in).

My rates are low compared to shops in town. Average is $150/hr. High is $200/hr for the local German shop. They all have overhead that I do not, so I keep my rates lower. Currently I'm booked months out for anything that isn't a necessity or emergency and I've never advertised. So yeah... not bad. Granted I'm 25 years into this work and I'm pretty good at it.

FWIW, my wife took the job as a controller at a company everybody here knows. Signing bonus was $1m at current stock price (which is way down right now). Salary is very mid 6 figures. So what I'm saying is, being a CPA with years in accounting and finance pays better than even the best mechanic job. She definitely doesn't work as hard or as many hours as I do, either.


@CIE

Thanks for the post. If everyone knows the company, I guess it isn't too personal to ask which.


@peacematu Sorry, I can't share. Too high profile. It would be too easy to figure out who she is.

I was going to say “Trader” but you’re probably right.  I’ve shaken hands with guys who’ve made seven figures in a day sitting behind a computer screen.

Every company has a CEO.  They just may not know it.

No highest paid, but inspection work is highest ROI for time spent IMHO.  Neurosurgeon.... makes bucks after decades. Lawyers, CEO etc etc Even contracting....  gotta spend years building skills (never mind the risks)


I've made 1k a day sitting in my truck & I've invested a grand total of maybe a month of classroom time & well under 10k in cost of training.

There are some exceptions to that rule like maybe personal pilot to a famous person but usually starting out pilots pay is peanuts....which is why I elected not to do it.  I will also say supply and demand will dictate this as well....in the past 15 years supply has been pretty high but as of recently this seems to be changing so the FNG might get better pay than when I was looking at it.

Mums the word.  
They discuss it amongst themselves, but are quite practiced at being circumspect around others.    I think it originally stemmed from not wanting to make the flight attendants jealous.

My sister is a management captain of some sorts.  She makes more in a month than I make some years.
