If you can be the main guy at a fairly busy place, you can get like $400-$500/week salary if its busy, and then just ask for rain days off, also ask if you can get a packer to help you wash the plane in exchange for jump tickets.
The diverdriver website is awesome, but let me know if you have questions about working at a DZ, you can end up working your butt off some weeks and not flying at all others due to WX, that is why I would really try and get salary.
