What kind of pay and schedule does a 350 cap get at Carson? Can a guy afford a mortgage and food on the goBig rate somewhat near the airport?

The short and easy answer is no. However, if you are single, or d-I-n-k, yes, you could afford a place near the airport on their starting salary. Otherwise, it's the Burbs. You're looking at $1500 per month for a one bedroom within 15 min drive of the airport. YVR is expensive...only come here if you really want to be here in Van or are obsessed with the Ocean or prefer rainy winter to snowy cold winter. The mountains are great, but you can get that and much lower cost of living in Calgary. Otherwise, go somewhere else where you'd get the same or more salary and living expenses halved. Just my $.02

Schedule is something like 5 on 5 off, or 4 on 4 off...someone who currently works there should chime in. Starting salary is in the 55-60k range.

...or you could move to northern Alberta and make 85k and live in the frozen wasteland buy a cheap house and wish you were in Vancouver everyday until your bond is repaid...

Or you could move to Norther Ab and enjoy your community, your sub 1 million dollar house, go camping, fishing, or quadding with your buddies all the time, and be thankful you aren't stuck in traffic for 20 hours a week.

If that's the starting salary, yes you'll have no issues living in Vancouver so long as you don't want to live in Kits or something. Richmond rents can be around $1200/month for a pretty nice place.

To be fair, there was snow on the ground all winter last year. Also, it rained every day for 2 months prior to the snow and for 2 months after it left.
