    I'm considering doing a transfer to SW FL from the Chicago area. Would my pay rate stay the same, or would it change to whatever rate it may be in that local for the same amount of years worked?

    And, does anyone know how the contracts of those 2 locals stack up against each other?

    This is my first post. Thanks for any responses.-David

    Naples is 4 hours away to Disney. That's what I consider SW Florida?

    You're asking him something that only you know?

    I imagine you'd be red circled at whatever rate you're at. And the local supplement you end up under in Florida probably won't be as strong as what you're used to in Chicago. Just the nature of a relatively weaker local in a RTW/southern state.

    That sucks. Coastal FL isn't really all that southern in ideals. I'd figure there'd be some northern political influence over there.

    Your pay rate will remain the same. At least that is what happened with our last two educational transfers.

    Correct.

    Surprisingly though, with one of our educational transfers he could have won a FT bid within 6 months of starting here. Came at the right time. Said if he was still at his old building he'd have to wait another 4 years. Results aren't typical though of course OP.
     
  11. Some buildings its really bad.

    We hired 4 guys FT after peak. 3 off the street, 1 insider. Only 1 inside guy signed the FT sheet. Couldn't believe it.
     
  13. That's crazy
     
  14. Of course who in the Hell would want to drive there?

    Sucks in the winter, but our center's atmosphere is a little more bearable than most buildings it seems.

    There's a certain point where you can't feel the difference between -10 and -35. Just get used to it.
     
  18. My feet know the difference.
