That would really depend on what experience you have. If you have a limited understanding of the hosting industry, then you could probably expect an affiliate position at the most.

This also might be better suited in the employment requests forum or lounge.

A lot of good research here on WHT and a lot of education, at least to be successful.

yeah, deep pockets are always a big plus in any industry as well as a nice fat rolodex.

I think these are pretty much the basic requirements:

- a lot of patience
- in-depth knowledge about linux (or windows/solaris/etc depending what the company uses)
- basic knowledge about networking
- customer relations and PR
- a new idea. Unless you are going to offer something new, you're not really going to stand a chance against all the established competition

You need to give top priority to the customer satisfaction. Beacuse keeping the existing customers is tougher than getting new ones.

True that. As somebody who has been scraped and bruised by hosts in the past, I'd gladly pay a company that would just treat me like a human being for once. The customer isn't always right, but at least listen to what they have to say.

I found that companies are willing to train you if you sign a contract that you won't leave for --- so long.

A big part of the equation is how serious are you about this. If you are some young teenager looking for a few dollars or a college student needing some decent cash you have different options. A lot of small hosting companies give you a free reseller and maybe some money.... That being said there are plenty out there that pay a real living wage, it depends on your time comitment, experience, and some luck.

I may have to disagree with you on the "lots of contracts" part. Contracts are usually a big way for customers to be cheap. For example, in the technical services industry, you might get between $40 to $160 an hour for your work. But if you do a contract all of a sudden you are working twice as hard for one-third of the price.

Depends what kind of contract but for the most part there is no benefit to your average consumer EXCEPT they get more work done, for less money. Businesses on the other hand can benefit from contracts because they don't want to be easily ditched and have it disrupt 'their flow'.
