    The description states a Minimum salary of $37,652 - Minimum means the least amount you could be paid in this position depending on your qualifications. Obviously the more qualifications you have the higher the salary...

    Probies make more than that in most places, but that's what you get in the Southeast.

    Read the Charleston hiring thread, they pay FF $9/hour during the academy.
