Just to clarify the per diem for this assignment, it's $100 per day worked in addition to an hourly pay rate ranging from $14-28 based on experience.

OOOH sarcasim, love it. Since I am not an English major and have better things to clutter my mind with, my bad. At least I posted the origins and meaning.

Worked in the industry gig, well starting in 1979 may just qualify. Oh check out the CCCDI number, within the first 400 in Illinois to be certified. Just got it to have it to heck with working.

Maybe in your part of the country a person goes in blind on earnings, but Union jobs do give a start, raise and journeyman. Or are you not familiar with that?

Non union shops I agree they can screw the entry level person out of pay & training.

Oh gee wiz a wage posted without an in person meeting, go figure.

Gan, I am fairly certain this is a large non Union contractor. Especially at those wages.

This is the shop I interviewed with. Large. Non union. Flying out soon on their dime to see the operation. They are looking for guys from the Chicago and new York markets. Won't discuss their offer, but it's fair in comparison to the area but substantially less than union scale in chicago.

I'm Union but I also hire nonunion for certain lengths of time 90 days, if we get too busy. I don't post wages on the internet or in ad's. That is to be discussed once I have given them an offer of employment and negotiated then. When I call the hall to get a few Apprentices or Journeyman it's easy the wages are predetermined and set in stone,not so easy with nonUnion guys because you don't know their skill level.

Completely agree, non union need to be watched closely to prove their education and skill level. I have seen some in my area that didn't really know a thing while in their second year. Why because the business owner or sponsor never took the time to teach them. Just ran them as a gas crew, drill out etc. Which ticks me off. Then if they don't pass the exam the State very seldom goes back on the sponsor/business for not properly training the apprentice.

I have seen guys trained at a St. Louis technical college which then gets then a couple years off the State program. In fact we had one working for us while I was still in the field. Had to retrain since they taught them the national code instead of Illinois, no real fault there, but I swear this guy we had starting off pre-fabbing T&S and shower valves first. Over half of them leaked when we pressure tested our rough ins.

Why do you fellers insist on pissing all over this thread? Last time I checked, not every bench was empty and not every Plumber had had the gig that best suits him/her. Getting real Plumbers a real job is serious business gentlemen so how about we give our brethren the respect of letting them investigate the offer without a bunch uninformed attempts to discredit what sounds like an opportunity worth looking into.

Already peed today. Unless I am incorrect, no one stopped anyone from an investigation.

1) Proper intro.
2) full information disclosure
3) Head hunters welcome
