The engineer said,"In the neighborhood of $140,000 a year, depending on the benefits package". The interviewer said, "Well what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, plus 14 paid holidays, and full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary and a company car leased every 2 years..say a red Corvette?"
