Position Information

Application Deadline:

  • Open

Salary:

  • Starting:

    • No Experience: $65,421
    • Lateral: $68,717 - $79,521 

    Laterals can receive credit for one step in our salary table for every two years of current experience. Those with new experience will start at Step 1.

    We work a 12-hour schedule. One week is 36 hours, and the other is 48, which requires 8 hours of pay at a time-and-a-half overtime rate. This means the actual pay for our Telecommunicators is higher than the salary table in our Collectively Bargained Agreement (aka "The Contract" or CBA).

    The table below shows how each step changes from the contract to the actual pay. Laterals max out at step 5 regardless of years of experience.
