I will possibly be getting a machinist role through some contacts, and I have no experience in the field and I’m wondering what I could expect to make, when I look up average salaries for a machinist position I see around 65k but that seems too good for my age and experience so I’m wondering what some others in the trade on here are making

Well what is your location and do you have an internships experience? Also go about 20% higher than the average for negotiation even tho you think you might not be worth that much. The hiring manager usually want to pay you as low as possible.

The location is in Houston, and I don’t have any intern experience, I’ve been working since I was young just nothing in this field.

Curious did you land the job? Texas is rough for machinist pay. Hell I run a machine shop (have for the last decade) and haven’t broke 60k even with OT

My firm recently moved me to a new practice area. The partner who I have worked with for quite some time does not have enough work, and she does not want to be in a supervisory, teaching role. The firm moved me without having a real conversation, and the practice areas are like night and day. On one hand, I am extremely grateful to have a job. However, I am afraid that this jump could stunt my career since the new area has few exit opportunities. Any thoughts on how to proceed? Leave my firm?
