I'm just joking, But most pay anywhere from $6-10 an hour depending on experience and immigration status.

I don't know what they pay in Chipley but that sure is a small and old run down place. I was there last year and notice the old school from back in the 50's with no a/c was still in use. Good luck with your change in scenery.

well im simply just looking to stay in the field, so if i had to travel a half hour or so to get there then so be it. I'm a white male, early 20's that has 6 years experience owning my own business, and a many classes under my belt including business classes, so a managerial or foreman job would be reasonable i believe.

You might get $13-15 down here, with one of these big giant corps.

I'd learn Spanish if you wanna be a foreman/crew leader. Bilingual is A+++ down here.

Golf courses are always hiring. Don't know what they pay though.

Depends on the company, spoke to an owner of a big company and he pays his guys - get this
Blowers and edgers (raking & weeding to) $250 per week
Weed eater and hedge pros $ 350 per week
Mower operators $ 400 per week
crew foreman/driver with irrigation knowledge $ 600 per week

All workers MUST work a minimum of 40 hrs
Crew forman is responsible for everything from gas to blades, dumping box,
equip maintenance, etc.
Good luck with the move, welcome to Florida
