Well i just wonder, how much is the basic salary of a regular firefighter? i know it will depend on the country youre working for but i just wonder how much is the basic salary for the most of western country.
ill be working in saudi arabia under a british company, is $1600 USD is a good offer for a junior firefighter like me bec. ill be working in a petrochemical industry.
well im not after the money bec. i just want the job and i love being a firefighter in fact im a volunteer for about 10years but im still curious about the salary.
Alot of the union guys in washington state start around $3500 a month, then it increases after their probie period is completed. Cal-Fire starts at $2300 a month if I read the paperwork right. As for me, I'm still a vollie, so my pay is them letting me drive the BRT and the smiles and thank-yous that I get
Ok explain this to me... How does a JR. Firefighter get Paid for being a Jr. That throws me off.. You want to know what I am paid... 5 dollars LOL and that is just helping but I keep the money in a file locked away to where it can't be found except for by the EMS Director... WOW $1600 NICE Must be Nice.
I'm part-time paid-on-call...minimum 2 hours per call, even if I'm cancelled before I arrive. I've been on the department almost 5 years and I'm at $17.50 per hour (CDN), which isn't bad considering ours is a town of only about 4000 inhabitants.
I've been to Saudi Arabia 2001 to 2004 as an Accounting Clerk at ABV Rock Group (Swedish) construction company. A general contractor for Ministry of Defense and Aviation. Generally expatriate workers are exempted from the Saudi Taxes. So more likely $1,600 is basically your take home pay. That's it ! The only overhead you gonna have to watch out is your long distance phone calls bill. Keep it down.
Someday we will meet you in person and have a pizza.
