Pros and Cons of Austin fire department?
I am lieutenant for a fire department in Ms. I have been here over 10 years. However, I'm looking for something that pays more. I want to be able to provide more for my family. I currently make around 43k. I was looking at Austin pay scale I would make an extra $450-600 a month on top of what their firefighters make. I have been looking at federal jobs with FEMA then I saw Austin was hiring. I'm undecided on if I want to give up 10+ years to start over with another fire department or stick with applying for federal jobs. Could someone that works for Austin fire department give me some pros and cons of your department?
