I'll start w/ this, which is straight across the board:|
DOE as of 2009 -- Median salary:
20 years experience or more: $39,000
10-19 years: $36,000
5-9 years: $31,000
1-4 years: $27,000
1 year or less: $22,000
[Take annual salary and divide by 13 months x 40 hours x 4 weeks = 2080 hours for hourly salary]
Here's what it was in 2001:
2001 -- “Certified Pharmacy Technicians earn 23% more than non-certified Technicians.”
The pay of technicians depends on many factors, including PTCB certification, previous experience, employment setting, area of the country, and years practicing as a pharmacy technician. The average pay ranges from $6.50 to $13.00 an hour usually based upon certification and length of employment. However, many CPhTs earn over $15 an hour.
