    Anyone make $28 hr

    I finally got a job interview that was going to pay $28 an hour, highest salaried job I ever interviewed for. It was for a production accountant role at DisneyToon studio. The place where all the Disney Channel movies, straight to DVD movies are made. This is the place where all your fav 90s Disney Channel cartoons like DuckTales were made.

    But ya I really wanna be a production accountant now, it sounds more interesting than your typical accounting job. They said I would be able to work with producers of the show to oversee their budget for shows. And it be a chance to meet some interesting people who make cartoons for Disney Channel. And get into the movie / entertainment industry. Also the office is smaller so feels more relaxed than some other parts of Disney's corporate office, but still is very nice. I talked to some random dude in the parking lot about if hoverboards were allowed, and he said this office is very chill, more relaxed than other parts of Disney. There are alot of those chill nerdy guys who are making cartoons all day, and most of them seem chill.

    But besides that $28 is the most I've ever seen for a job interview. So it was a bonus that it was Disney and that it is paying alot, but it's a temp position. Besides the money, I am sure there are plenty of perks, like free Disneyland, free movie screenings, free merch, etc. Plus they had a snack bar which was pretty cool and a cool break room. There are guys there riding scooters in the office, and some guy I saw in the parking lot says it's very chill there and not super corporate. \

    But ya anyone a production accountant, work for Disney, or made $28/hr? I would really love to make $28 an hour some day in my life, I would finally feel going to college was worth it.

    Sounds like an interesting job that will likely provide a good work life balance. Those corporate accounting jobs aren't the springboards to the highest possible salary or career flexibility, but they strike a great balance.

    i make above 28... But its whatever. Once you reach your goal, you will just want more.
    I keep pushing because I think I'm untouchable. But I'll learn the hard way because I'm only a popcorn fart away from a 30 day ban.

    That's an hourly position. Salary means you work <40 or >40 you get the sam paycheck.

    FYI, it ALWAYS ends up being >40

    I understand that. But salaried is not considered "per hour." Most contracts specifically outline the difference.

    The real issue is whether or not you qualify and have agreed to be considered exempt from the 40 hour limit prior to overtime pay. This probably differs in independent contractor work vs. employee.

    That's good money. Why wouldn't you want the job?

    Sounds like a pretty important position, though... surprised they wouldn't want to hire someone with a lot of experience, even if only temp.

    PS. I would not accept anything less than $75/hr for a temp job, but I am not an accountant. :P

    I make a little over 28/hr right now. Honestly seems like a lot at first but you will get used to it quickly.

    2017 starts my profit share at my company. With profit sharing I my income will effectively double. I'm sure at some point I'll get used to that also.


    Point being, ANY job you get offered that gives you more money than you've ever made - take it. Earnings potential is an incremental thing. Almost like your perceived worth is affected by what a previous company valued you at. You're MUCH more likely to get a 50/hr job coming off a 28/hr job, than jumping straight from 15/hr to 50/hr.

    Hope that makes sense.
    Hey you, Hey you, This won't hurt a bit.


    Says who? Says who? Anesthetize this bitch.

    Like 6 months. It is temp.

    But $28 hour is decent for a temp position, even if they don't keep me. And I will be sure to take advantage of their perks, do they at least give you free Disneyland? Or invites to events or screenings to movies?

    Sounds like a pretty important position, though... surprised they wouldn't want to hire someone with a lot of experience, even if only temp.

    PS. I would not accept anything less than $75/hr for a temp job, but I am not an accountant. :P
    I only interviewed for the job. I'm still waiting on them to make a decision, hoping I get it but won't be surprised if they found someone with more experience.

    You going to be in Glendale or a different office? Have a few friends over there in senior back office roles ... Industry standard is it's a place you put in 2-3 years and move on since it's awesome on a resume but the work environment is tough. Not as bad as Amazon/I-banking but it's not going to be a walk in the park.

    I'd suggest you start shopping for new roles 3-4 months into your contract. Very unlikely they will hire you out of temp contract also unless you are absolutely incredible. They are very corporate on how they handle contract workers and your supervisor would have to make a stellar case to get around that.

    No e-brag but $28/hr isn't going to attract much talent in LA. If you nailed the interview I'd say you have a pretty good shot.

    Point being, ANY job you get offered that gives you more money than you've ever made - take it. Earnings potential is an incremental thing. Almost like your perceived worth is affected by what a previous company valued you at. You're MUCH more likely to get a 50/hr job coming off a 28/hr job, than jumping straight from 15/hr to 50/hr.

    Hope that makes sense.
    But what about job title/company prestige? Like if you get a new job at a new company they won't know what you were making before, you could always lie or not disclose it.
    Death is impossible for us to fathom: it is so immense, so frightening, that we will do almost anything to avoid thinking about it. Society is organized to make death invisible, to keep it several steps removed. That distance may seem necessary for our comfort, but it comes with a terrible price: the illusion of limitless time, and a consequent lack of seriousness about daily life. We are running away from the one reality that faces us all.

    Depends on the industry and how impressed I am by a candidate. If I sense bull**** I'll ask them for a copy of their previous signed offer or W2/1099.

    What the fk is your actual question? Do I make more than 28/hr? I'm salaried but yes much more if you break down the hourly... so fukkin what? Plenty of people who are happier with much less and many who will never be satisfied.

    Also obligatory childhood throwback:

    It will be the Glendale office, the DisneyToons studio. It's on 811 Sonora Blvd.

    But have you been to that office. Even it being Disney, it's still the same office papers all over your desk environment, the most Disney as it gets is maybe the cute paper cut outs of Disney characters on the walls, but that's about it.
