Not sure about taking the HVAC offer

I recently just got out of heating and air conditioning school. And I have been applying for jobs at assorted heating and cooling companies all over the local area. I got one offer that I was not too sure about taking. I did not end up taking it but it took me a week to decide. It turned out that the money offer from the heating and air conditioning company that was going to hire me was low as ever. I did not know this at the time until I started doing some serious research on what a certified heating and air conditioning specialist working for a local heating and cooling company should be getting paid. When I found out I was so in shock. I could not believe that these sleazy people were wanting to take advantage of a new and upcoming heating and air conditioning specialist like myself with low ball pay! Needless to say, this heating and air conditioning company just recently went out of business. So I see why they were doing this at least. It was because they were short on funds and hoping to get good heating and cooling specialists who did not know any better for a low cost in order to help rebuild their heat and a/c company. While it was a good idea, it was still sleazy and wrong! There were other ways to try to save their heating and air conditioning business. They just could not see the other options I guess.
