PuckChaser said:The pay is more than sufficient unless you're drowning in debt. Lots of Sigs NCMs own their own home and support a family on their salary and live comfortably. I could have started as a Jr network tech in some big server farm making $15/h, and maybe gotten a few raises here and there. After 4 years in the CF I was making almost $50k a year and supporting a family.
That being said, the ones that join for the money rapidly realize its not that its cracked up to be. Especially if you only want to be an officer for the cash. If you want better pay, go to the private sector.
Soldier100 said:Wow, that salary actually sounds better than what I expected an NCM to actually make. After doing some thinking, I think I'm going to stick to my original plan to apply for Signals Officer as I like the idea of having the satisfaction that comes with making a successful plan that gets done correctly and because I feel like Signals Officers have a decent balance between being out in the field and not being in the field.
Thanks, you have really given me some insightful information on Signals Officers.
