CA Results

Recommended Posts

I'm just sayin' - many of you know this, but just to calm any frazzled CA Board website checkers:

They haven't updated the website yet - it's still stuck on the same license number it's been on for the last week. So, if you don't see your name there, it doesn't mean you failed.

OK. Back to work. 30 mins left, yay!

I'll be expecting to see some pictures of them heels over the weekend...

Hope you you will be celebrating tonight. I am planning on knocking back a few single malts tonight!

On Monday I am going to march up to my Boss and demand a raise. Depending on his reaction and outcome, I'll know if this bloody thing was worth busting my arse for...

Now that I passed it is rather anti-climactic.

I wonder how that feels? WHERE THE HECK IS MY LETTER? LOL

HELL yes it was. And, if you don't get a decent raise, I recommend you take your newly-stamped self elsewhere......from what I'm told, that's the way to get the biggest bump in pay.

Depth was Geotech. Morning was pretty fair and basic, afternoon was more difficult than the first time that I took it but I studied a lot more for it the 2nd time. I felt the first time I wasted too much time studying for the morning session which contained mostly very basic questions and neglected to study enough geotech which was to my detriment because I am in the field nearly 100% and not conducting much analysis.

Congrats.

I will get my letter tomorrow or Monday because I lived in NY.

First time or not first time? It says 36% passed NCEES.

If anything, I tell my boss that I don't expect a raise because of these tough economic times and thank them for the support. Much more honorable, and you are in complete control. Any way you spin, you are in the drivers seat.

Way to go... brown nose the old boy/gal and you'll have a job for life.

Agreed. If you say that, you are 100% guaranteed NOT to get a raise. If your billing rate goes up as a result of your PE status, you definitely should get a raise, otherwise they are just making $$$$ off of you. F%#& that!

If you are denied a raise, ask for a reason and carefully consider their explanation. If you feel it's bullshit, don't threaten to go elsewhere- just do it (of course, don't give your notice until you have a signed/accepted offer elsewhere). You don't want to work for a place where you have to fight to get paid what you're worth.

Good luck, everyone!

It's how you approach it really. I don't have a problem with being honest and there's nothing wrong with thanking your employer. However, every promotion I have ever gotten is from leaving a company.

True - in my present situation I feel like I'm getting used by my employer (as do many of my coworkers). But if you have a good boss, and you're getting a fair wage, then I can definitely understand and agree with your approach.

Plus, I'm kinda drunk, so my crankiness at my current situation is coming out ;)

Time to get on the bus....goodnight, Cali PE test takers! Best of luck....let us know how you did.

I have been a silent observer past few days on the forum and it helped me deal with my anxiety. So thank you all a lot. I just got my result letter as well and passed the 8 hr and seimic but failed surveying. It was my first attempt and I kind of knew I would fail surveying. I think was expecting around 28-30 on it but the cut-offs might have been higher. Good luck to all you guys who haven't opened their mails yet and all thee out of states who have to wait the weekend.

Good luck everybody, I am been watching the site these past few days going through all the emotions with you. I decided to finally create an account and thank everybody for making me feel normal for all the emotions i am going through...I am in SLO and hoping to have my results today, i figure i am close enough to the Bay Area...and of course I am stuck at work because the storms that just blew through. =(

There will be no raises where I work this year.
