I thought Sharon's remarks about histotech salaries were excellent.
Geographical area is a definite factor, although the gaps which existed
between the midwest and the west coast (USA) for years seems to be
narrowing. I hadn't thought about considering the opportunity a job offered
but of course that is important. I would consider benefits as well. The
private lab in our area pays a higher salary but our benefits are far

Our hospital's salary range for a staff histotech is:
13.70 to 19.58 per hour. Not the highest wages in the country but it is a
fantastic work environment. I would probably offer  a person with four years
experience who interviewed well, somewhere in the mid-point range. I would
also take into consideration what they were making at their previous/current
job and how desperate I was to fill the position! We are somewhat
geographically isolated from any large urban areas and recruiting can be
difficult because the person usually has to relocate. Fortunately, we have
very little turnover, even with 9 people.
