comment Is my pay fair, just based on the fact I have little experience
If you are new to the testing field talking with a recruiter is a different experience but one you should definitely get some experience in. Finding a good recruiter is hard and requires simple trial and error. When dealing with a recruiter, understand their job and pay are dependent on placing you at a company. Some are pushy, some are understanding, some will only have a single company to place you at while others will be more patient about finding something good for you. Their understanding of pay scales will depend on the type of clients they have.

comment What types of testing are LEAST suited to using pairwise testing (and similar test design approaches)?
At least one of the papers @user246 is referring to is called "A Comprehensive Framework for testing graphical user Interfaces" found here: cs.virginia.edu/~soffa/research/dissertations/atif.thesis.pdf

comment Updates to scripts in test lab
Can you add some context to this question? Is test lab a generic term or a specific product that you are referring to?

comment Is a Final Release Report a good way to communicate results?
It's true I have two roles. Yet I want to separate the build information or "build report" (new features, release notes, etc.) from what happened during testing.

comment QA in Office Setting?
This question is really vague. Sounds like you need a better understanding of the problem you are trying to solve. Use the best quality assurance tool you have: your brain!
