So what is the salary range?

Salary is completely dependant upon the candidate. We are looking for someone who has all the neccesary licenses, and certs already. OR the desire to obtain them within 12 months of employment (6 months for CDL).

The sky is the limit at Mayer. I have doubled my starting salary in the three years I have been with them!

Salary is between 30-50K a year plus, overtime, and bonuses.

Salary is VERY dependant on the qualifications, certifications, and licenses the perspective prospect posses-and is able to posses-in the time frame stated above.
