    Vermount is very different then AZ, the winters are very cold and lots of snow, the cost of living is less than AZ, and some towns are small, if you are use to a big city there could be culture shock. Not sure about sign on bonus these days.

    Vermont can be a great place but it's not for everyone. The towns you mention are in northern Vermont which is colder, snowier, and has longer winters. We have far fewer sunny days than Arizona--last year only 81!

    I could be wrong about this and don't want to offend anyone but my impression is that those towns have less going on culturally than, say, Burlington or Brattleboro. If you like winter sports, you'll like Vermont. If you want the arts, you can find them but your choices will be fewer.

    I expect the cost of living is different than AZ but not necessarily less. Housing is expensive here relative to wages--not San Francisco or Manhattan expensive, but still hard on most folks. Heating can eat up a lot of your money. You have to have a reliable car here, and depending on where you live you may need 4 wheel drive.

    Good luck!

    For average pay, go to the Vermont Department of Employment.
    Vermont can be a hard place to live, if you like the sun and the big city.
    St. Albans is kind of desolate and isolated. I would move to Burlington, or to Southern Vermont. There are two Kindred facilities in Burlington. I used to work at one, and it was a TERRIFIC place to work. It's called Birchwood Terrace Healthcare.

    Hi evgace! This post was been a while but I just would like to know if you finally end up working in Genesis ( Bel-aire or St Albans ) and how is the working condition there and what's the nurse-patient ratio. I will really appreciate any info. Thank you very much.
