re: Planning or Scheduling rates??


From my experience 70-120k depending on experience and company. If you work for a construction company you will probably have multiple projects going and stay relatively busy. Usually have a deadline every week or couple of weeks for progress meetings or small schedules that people wanted done yesterday

Eta: doesn't pay near as well as a plant operator. Everyone knows they rake in the dough

The contract planners at our plant make about $35-40 per hour. The ones we hire direct start at about $100k per year and get raises based on ranking among their peers.

The northeast has a high demand for planners in electric utility....you can make up to 120k base plus per diem, all the overtime you want and other perks....per diem is running 120 a day and you can find decent places to live

Yeah but you'd be living in the northeast, not louisiana. It's a no brainier on which one to choose. 3' of snow and the Boston Red Sox or sportsmans paradise.

I am seeing O&G and Nuke are closer on pay scale than for Mechanical engineers. Thats weird.

Engineers don't make a lot until they get into management. Project planning scheduling is a little more intertwined with management so the opportunity exists to make more.

yeah...the people at the upper end of the pay scale are usually leading the scheduling effort with a couple of people under them

In the nuke industry you can make 100 an hour easy in either planning/scheduling if a self contractor.
