How much of a raise?

7 posts in this topic

I just finished my first year of practice out of school as an ER PA in los angeles. 

My current contract as an employee:

$58/hr base rate. Each shift is 10 hours and at 1.5x for the last 2 hours the average comes out to $64/hr.

I work about 14 shifts/month which comes out to about $107.5k/year. 

Benefits: 4 weeks PTO which equals an additional $9.2k

7% 401k match which I am maxing. 

And then basics like malpractice and health etc

 

Question is what should I ask for in terms of raise to my base rate? I feel like they are going to offer something nominal like $60/hr which will only increase annual pay by about $3.3k

 

Any help? Thanks

3.3k would come out to barely 3% raise. Inflation is typically around 3%, so it really wouldn't be much of a raise. I think $65 an hour would be a nice goal to ask for.

65 base so that would put me at $120k/yr. 

Coming from where I am now ($108k), that seems like a big bump. I mean, I would love that. But is that feasible? I'm in a small ER and see about 2-3 patients/hr on average

No it is not feasible, that is a 12k per year raise...that is not gonna happen (would be nice). I would look for about 5k-7k increase...good luck!

I'm getting a 23k raise. It can be done... Just start out underpaid. :)

I totally agree. It`s an optimized variant, I`m sure!
