Re: Does anyone else have a HARD time finding out what pay is in your area?

Hi there, I just graduated from an MA majoy here in Savannah, GA. It happened to be that I got hired from my externship site from school. I work in a very nice office with a high reputation Dr. in town as an MA in Rheumatologist. They start paying me for $10/hr. I grabbed the offer right away b/c I know it's hard to find a job anywhere now adays. The office mangaer once said during my orientation that they're gonna have a renegotiate for my pay once I pass the certification. On August 14th, I passed certification and showed her the sealed sheet from prometrics but I didn't asked for the raise yet since I just started this job. I know later down the road, they will give the pay I deserve. Just be patience.

In my area, I have seen starting wages as low as $9/hr and as high as $15/hr. It just depends on the facility.
