They forgot to tell you that you have to pay for your own transportation on your 2 week rotation. As one more cautionary note do not take anything verbally from anyone, if it's not in writing insist upon it, if they won't then run, I was bitten by this twice where I trusted them in my discussions only to be screwed in the end. It will cost you plenty if you don't pay very close attention to the details in the writing of your contract.
