I've been job searching for 6 months and I've received 2 job offers. I accepted the first one I received because I was afraid I wouldn't get another one. I am having a hard time deciding what to do. I've talked to everyone I know about it, and I still can't make a decision. I thought I'd ask you all for advice.
Major Retail Company
Part Time 20 hours
$1 less then the full time job
I like the manager
the job duties change daily
10 minute commute
Morning Shift M-F and I would have rotating weekends, about once a month
Major Financial Company
Customer Service Rep - Call Center
Full Time 40 hours
$1 more an hour then part time job
I don't know anyone that I will be working with or the manager
repetitive work dealing with cutomers over their credit cards and bills
15 minute commute
Afternoon shift 1230-900pm
I would have to work every saturday and have off sunday & tuesday.
My husband works Sat-Mon 12 hour shifts during the day.
I'm leaning towards the Part time Job because I will have my afternoons to spend with my husband and dogs.
But I would be giving up half the money
I would have a variety of tasks to do, not the same thing ever day over and over at the call center.
Plus I wouldn't have to deal with mean cranky customers on a daily basis.
But we need the money! and I can sleep in. But with that schedule, it seems like thats all you would have time for is sleep & work.
Oh decisions! I honestly thought I would get one offer and I would have to take it. I never thought I would have to make a decision!
And there is one more potential Job working for the State. There is no problem making a decision there, State Jobs are great!
So what would you do? Job#1 or Job#2?
