It better be "Top Dollar" of course!!!
Remember, I'm laughing with you not at you!!!!
In my experience "competitive pay" is usually just another way of saying we pay a little as we can get away with. "Industry leading pay" is something to pay attention to.
I work for FedEx. We top out at $54.27/hr. That includes license pay, shift differential, etc.

Worst year of my career
I did my year in 2000, it ended up being a great learning experience. They had Southwest sponsored 737 classes. SW and FDX had just computerized their MM and IPC, a nice change from reader/printers. The turnover was high and I never had to the same job twice. This made for a bit of trial by fire, which is exciting. Also got to see more dumb mistakes than I ever thought possible. Then Delta called and that job was relatively boring.
I'm sure me being greedy we'll see, if my body can keep taking it I'm going to keep doing it.
My biggest issue is that my ADD/ADHD is so bad if I don't work 50-60 hours a week minimum I start going crazy, I'll get depressed and my anxiety starts shooting through the roof. 60-80 is perfect for me. I get plenty of sleep, I still have a little free time to do some things. Hangout with the girlfriend, ride around, etc.
I've had a great run in aviation maintenance, past few years have really done me well.
