It sounds like the $ 12 per hour number would be about right for your area !!

I would say with your experience they will probably offer you $10 an hour.

Good company to work for. I did an internship with them summer of '03 and learned a lot. They gave me the keys to the truck and radio my 2nd week there when the crew chief for that crew went on vacation.

I could have went with them in an upper management position when I got out of school and they wanted me to, but they didn't offer company trucks so superintendents had to use their own and I wasn't doing that.

Went with another company instead that worked 4-10s and it worked out where I could do my accounts on Fridays and now I've been almost 3 years full time for myself.

Good company to work for though, I learned a lot.
