  • What would you do?

    I interviewed for a new job 2 weeks ago and was offered a position. they are offering me $4.05 more per hour than I am making now and it is 13 miles from home (I am driving 45 miles each way now), seems like a no brainer right? Here is the deal the hours are 3:00PM - 11:30 PM Monday - Friday. I have talked with my wife and she is OK with it. But I like where I work now and the people are great and my job is very easy. My new job will be similar but I know I will be much busier.

    Any chance of getting onto days in the reasonably near future? Difference in benefits?

    Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

      Is the $160 a week worth being away from your family every night? What kind of opportunity for advancement does the new gig have for advancement?

        Great redundant question!
        If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

          More money and huge savings on gas, vs horrible hours. The busy thing shouldn't factor much - I would rather be busy at work than not (so long as it's not so busy all the time an 8 hour day seems like a holiday).

          Any chance they'd switch hours for you at some point in the future?

              What ChiTown said - if you can get the hours to change in the future I'll take the job.

              Just me though.

                I worked nights for years when I was in TV. Believe it or not, I loved it. I am not a morning person though, and I was single at the time. It just seems like your free time before going to work is longer and more productive.

                Would it be possible to go to a day shift at some point?

                Today, I wouldn't do it because I like to be home when the kids are here.

                  If you have kids, I say no. It's not worth it. You'll understand when they're grown up. You can't get that time back.

                    There is no guarantee on switching to days, I have already asked, but they did say when a day shift opens it is always offered in house first.

                    Benefits are better than where I am now. Where I am now there is no room to move up at the new place there is. And rather tan a 403b I will have a 401k, although they do not start matching until you have been employed 1 year.

                      Or don't take the job, and pass me along the info for this open position.

                        I would rather not work nights. And you have a sure thing now.

                              Wasn't there some issue of insolvency at your current place? Am I thinking of someone else?
