the end of a job interview, the Human Resources person*)
asked a young engineer who was fresh out of MIT, "What starting salary were
you thinking about? "The engineer said, "In the neighbourhood of
$125, 000 a year, depending on the benefit package."
The interviewer said, "Well, what would you say to a package of five weeks' vacation, full medical and dental insurance, a company retirement fund of 50% of the salary, and a company car leased every two years - say, a silver Lexus?"
The engineer sat up straight and said, "Wow! Are you kidding?"
The Human Resources person*) replied, "Sure, but you started it."
