New York City/ Long Island Salaries

Postby tj2012 » Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:50 pm

Hello all,

Recently I attended a information session at a local college about their RPSGT program. Id like some objective realistic salary expectations from independent sources. I was told by the workers from the program that upon graduation I could expect to make on a full time basis anywhere from $25 to $32 dollars per hour in the New York Long Island area.

I was also told there is a "high demand" for registered sleep techs and finding a job right upon graduation or even before was very realistic.

Can anyone please advise if this is the case. I'm primarily seeking full time work with paid medical benefits. This is a total career change for me and would be a big investment just to take all the pre requisites required and the course itself. Id like to see if its "all worth it".

Thanks for your input. It would be greatly appreciated!

I think the salary range is reasonably accurate. But i am a little suspect of the jobs being as promising as described- at least at reputable facilities on Long Island right now. Oxford insurance as well as others appear to be pushing harder for home studies which may reduce the metro area need for night techs in the near future. Feel free to PM me if i can be of further assistance. I would be happy to assist you in whatever manner i can. Good luck!

TJ was this class in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Nassau, or Suffolk or other county. Unless you wish to name the school?

The only accredited program in that area is Stoney Brook University. Thats probably the one hes talking about.

Thanks for the fast replies.

Yes the University was Stony Brook.

I was browsing various health career ads at different long island hospitals

I noticed quite a few nursing openings however they seem to all be "part time". I imagine that if you are hired as a part timer, you don't receive medical benefits among other perks

Is this also the trend with sleep techs?

Yes it is. As long as people keep voting against their best interest and keep the traitor Republicans in office you can rest assured your ability to have freedom of employer will forever be out of our reach as big business wish to always keep a choke hold over the employees, as witnessed by the scumbag in Wisconsin.
