First Year Raise Amount?


Recommended Posts

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 

 

(I also posted in Contracts but thought you guys may be able to give me some better info)

Hi SoCal_PA, I was wondering what ended up happening.. were you able to negotiate for a raise? Your benefits sound very similar as to mine. I also work in the ER but in Northern California. I have a review coming up next month (I've been working in the ER as a new grad for 6 months now) and would like to bring up getting a raise, but wasn't sure if it was too soon to ask.
