    Apple technician costs..

    If we were, for the sake of argument, considering employing a technician with a good knowledge of Apple Macs, and supporting a small Apple network, how much would we be looking at as a salary, ballpark?

    Please feel free to PM if you prefer. I'm in a bit of a rush for the info!

    Not sure if this is the right place, so apologies if it isn't!

    What's a standard techy cost? 15/16k? So if it's an apple tech you'd be looking at at least 50k.

    The same wage as a Tech who specialises in Microsoft or Cisco technology

    I thought Apples did not need technicians? Everyone seems to say theyre so reliable.

    We have an Apple techy here, but the college calls him an "Apple Specialist" and pays him £5k more than the rest of us.
    That said, he does do the job of a manager of a small network, including apple servers and keeping all the prissy apple loving types happy.

    LOL!

    Small network? I sort out the few here for no extra - it's not too difficult. Difficult to answer the question as you'll know from other threads... standard techs range from £10k-£25k, NMs from £15k-£40k+!

    I think you'll agree that's quite a range (and pretty accurate)

    ^^ This (seriously). Along with the NM, I manage a small Apple Mac network (around 40 Mac's and an Apple server) in addition to the rest of the network of over 520 PCs and I don't get paid any extra to supplement my meagre wage. I would say £15/£16K absolute max.

    You'll probably find six months after employing him, a better one becomes available which can do everything that the first one should have been able to do.

    Isn't that always what happens though?
