    Hi Chad, do you have a salary range (commensurate with experience is not an answer)? Is the position strait salaried or hourly with OT? Benefits? Time off/sick/etc?

    There's a bit of wiggle room with the salary (commensurate with knowing one should always ask). Straight salaried with accrued comp time, flexible schedule, medical, and dental.

    Care to post what the actual salary is? We have way too many issues in this business with people adjusting salaries due to gender, age, or other discriminatory practices. Putting the salary out there alleviates some of these issues.

    @Footer For instance; dental coverage is only good if you can be spared time during daylight hours to get to a dentist. Don't ask me how I learned this.

    Or to be able to afford gas to get there... or food to eat with said teeth... or be able to keep that car running... or a roof over one's head.
