The rate of pay was competitive at $65 per hour, paid travel, meals and gas all based on the PGE Timecards.  It was supposed a real project with real payments just like I've done in the past.

The PGE project was too good to be true and came it just in time - almost too perfect, barely an interview, no background check, no car, no license and off the street for just a few weeks.
