  2. At least this paper is honest about it, but it always amazes me when a company won't contribute $500 to help lessen moving costs for the right candidate.

    Can a person live on the "$20,000 to $25,000" that's being offered?

    That's the one saving grace about Jacksonville - it's 30-45 minutes from some nice beaches.

    Whoever gets it should keep a copy of the ad. When they leave at the end of 40 hours, and the boss complains, show them the ad and tell them that they're admitting to making people work unpaid OT.
