The salary is what you are able to negotiate.  While the average salaries can
be found for various parts of the country, there may be a wide disparity

To me of equal importance to the salaries are the benefits packages, sick
leave, vacation, medical, dental, retirement contributions, shift
differentials. Other important factors to me would be the work load, working
hours, length of service of the individuals there.Unless it is a new facility,
I would be suspicious if  most of the individuals had only been there a year or
