Working for the State of Delaware is a blessing but also a curse. Many positions require that you have a B.A. but began your pay at $31,912 per year which averages out to approximately $912.00 biweekly after taxes and family medical benefits are taken out of your pay (Working 37.5 hrs. per week.) It just doesn't appear to be enough to live off of here (Standard of Living is higher) without getting an additional job (I obtained a second job) Working for the state does have its great parts to include longevity, permanency, health insurance, life insurance, and a 401K plan. Another positive is that you meet some really great people IF and I say IF you are lucky. I have been working for the State of Delaware for the last 11 years and I'm seriously thinking about going over the bridge to MD, or VA so that I could survive on working 1 job and spending time with my young children. Promotions are available.... Again, working for the State is what you make of it.
