Job Contract. Does this sound right?

  1. I am moving to Michigan from Canada so I am so unfamiliar with the pay / job contracts and do not want to take a job that is taking advantage of me. Does this seem fair?

    Home Infusion 40 hrs / week. Pay at $30/hr. No holiday pay until 1 year of employment. Benefits after 90 days of employment, no dental. Requires Detroit home visits. Mileage reimbursed at 0.41 / mile.

    Any advice / feedback is welcomed. TY

    I work in Toronto in a hospital 40 hrs a week $30 an hour. Benefits and sick time (12 days) after 3 mths including dental. 3 weeks vacation a year but slowly accumulated so really it doesn't start until after a year. Depends what city you are working in whether Detroit is an ok distance. Hope that helps

    That sounds about right for the states. Companies not giving benefits until 90 days is not atypical. Thinking about a move there also after I am done school so I can be close to family in Ontario. I hear MI is boring though.

    Not true. Like most things in life, any given location is what you make of it.

    Detroit, eh? Pay sounds pretty good, but are you provided a bodyguard?
