If that is 2400, bi-weekly, that is about average for someone that is green. Looking at the big picture, that is ~70k+ before taxes. You'll make 90+ in 2-3 years I'd wager.
Personally, if its even a semi-reputable company and the work interests you - take it until you find better(you will). While it's pretty simple, easy work...it's important and you can learn a lot from it.
IMO, If you take the gig and you get the time(and if they allow), tear down a Separator and learn it from the ground up. It will pay dividends when things get quirky.
That said, my old man may be able to help you out if the production side is where you want to establish a career.
