Just a note.... we do get paid very well... but there are always catches.

We have a "job description" but because we are so "substantially compensated," we are "expected" to do any and everything else they (the powers that be) request (within reason -- well sometimes :lol: ). So... although I am content with where I am and my pay..... the grass is not always greener friends. 8)

KySleep, you get paid more as a RPSGT if you're an RRT than, say, a CRT or with only your RPSGT?

Never had shift dif. Not as a traveler or in a perm position. I know there are many labs that pay this though.

I can relate. The last time I received a shift diff was when I was working full-time for a hospital sleep center. I miss those benefits!

pay scale

Postby cesmith11 » Tue May 25, 2010 5:40 am

Working as an RPSGT at a prominent hospital in Dallas TX, I make $22.50 base rate with a $3.00 shift differental and an extra $5.00 if I work Friday or Saturday night. I am a PRN tech, so i probably make 2 or 3 and hour more than if I was FT. This is the most I have been paid anywhere in Dallas, and I have worked with 3 different places. The most I could get anywhere else was 21-22 an hour with no shift differential.

In WI I hire in around $25 for RPSGT. That's with shift diff, so base rate around $22/23 ish. If you are REEGT and RPSGT or RT and RPSGT it's over $25 and with shift diff $27/$28.

Im in PA, Pay here is ~17.00-20.00/ hour


whats the pay like in florida. I'm getting sick of this cold and my lab is being aggressively killed off by the local hospital. If this place goes belly up, I'm leaving. There's no way in hell in staying in PA (I'm from florida) to work at some random sleep lab I have no stake/connections in.

please... somebody tell me I have find a job that at least pays 16.00/hour as RPSGT/RST with 5 years experience. My current lab is the only lab in area that does peds... so maybe I have some experience others lack.

Being RPSGT with 5 years of experience working with pedis and being bilingual should definitely get you a lot more than $16/hour. This thread might be helpful to you:

The last post was made in 2009 and I don't live in FL so I have no idea what the current payrates would be. What city in Florida would you like to move to? Start looking around for labs close to where you want to live, look for job opportunities on their websites or call the HR department and see if you can find out what the average salary would be. Some places offer 15% night shift differential so make sure you ask if you get shift diff. Good Luck!

holy crap I have chills running down my spine. This is so uplifting. I'm so use to such a saturated area here in PA, i figured FL would be WORSE. Thank you so much for the link. I will certainly read through it.

Florida is also saturated with techs. The majority are acquisition techs. It's somewhat difficult to find registered techs. Its even more difficult to find techs who can score. Bottom line...if you are registered and can score (or bilingual) you will be employed in Florida. If not, it may be difficult to find work.
