Pharmacy Buyer Advice

What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Pharmacy Buyer in Fredericksburg:
"Based Upon Location."
Ask do you get the rate as far as where the job is located because I work in northern va and since the cost of living is higher I should get a better pay rate but I don't since my other hospital is located in the south. I feel as though this isn't correct at all.
