Insurance cost is $60 per pay check ($120/month) for health insurance - POS plan for family. Dental is $25 per pay check ($50/month) for full family coverage (100/80/50). Significantly less for single dudes.

Training contract is prorated: 1 year for uniforms, 2 years for relocation and type rating.
