I got my trainee license about a year ago, and I have been working under a supervisor for around that time too. We have been doing the inspections together, however, I do all the work before and afterwards.

How much should I be getting paid for each assignment I complete?

I work on comp checks, home inspection, data gathering, and type reports.

From each assignment I get paid from $175-$250, depending on fee. I am in SoCal.

Is this fair?

minimum wage is probably overstating the average trainee's income

I started as trainee for 40% of the fee, as an employee, working up to 50% in fourth year of training.

Okay, so it seems I'm getting paid pretty good compared to other trainees out there. Won't complain then, thanks guys. We have been getting pretty busy, the load work is just getting to me :)

I would guess your pay is competitive but am unfamiliar with the pay for SoCal Trainees. Hopefully it is!

I've been a trainee for around six months and make anywhere from $35-$100 per report. More or less I do the same work you do but really it depends on the specific assignment.

To be honest I feel lucky that I have Supervisors that give me work, teach me, and answer all of my appraiser wannabe questions. All worth a lot to me.

I was in your bracket of income for 3-4 years. ~$90 a report.

The OP is definitely a 1 off. Very charitable bossman.
