Thanks! After getting a couple of low-ball offers, I'm very excited about this. Being able to have 2 full weeks off at a time is a huge plus, too. Course, that means I'll be putting in long hours the other 2 weeks, but lots of OT at $40+/hr adds up fast. Actually end up working more OT than straight time, which is part of the reason the pay is that high annually. But, when you think about it, I will literally only work half the year....lol.

Worked there years ago when the name was Casino Express. Hence the XP in my screen name. Just wondered how the new buy-out was going to affect things. Thanks!
