  Your problem is a difficult one because unfortunatelly there are no salary standards and sometimes seniority take precedent, as well as previous good evaluations determine final rates with a great dispariry amongst people sometimes doing the same job.
  Having said all that, at one point I was able to have approved a salary range for starting personnel, how it developed from that moment on was determined by salary increaments after the annual evaluations.
  The salary range was:
  1-auxiliary personnel :$15/hour
  2-bench histotech for general tasks: $20/hour
  3-histotech for special procedures like HC and IHC: $25/hour.
  4-histotech for special procedures like ISH, FISH and TEM: $30/hour.
  5-supervisor and manager, being a non hourly administrative position, was negotiated with the administration (at the end the supervisor/manager ended earning less money that any of the HTs due to excess non-compensated time dedicated to administrative tasks).
  Hope this will help you.

  I am look for help people, currently in our facility we are trying to
hire for a histotech assistant in our lab. I was wondering if people
would be willing to share salary ranges with me. Based on our current
problem they are showing that the histotech assistant is to be paid the
same as our technician job slot. This to me is the biggest problem of
all. what defines assistant vs technician vs technologist. I have
looked at the qualification for each one, the defining mark being
certified, AAS, and BAS, but then how do you handle a perosn with 10 to
20 years of experiance with no education, just everyday savy knowledge,
which to me is worth just as much as a AAS or BAS. Also what i have
looked at the last ASCP wage and vacancy vs the Advance article and
there is a huge discrepany in pay. HELP PLEASE!!!!!!
