I am having a really tough dilemma with this whole job thing. I mean, I really need a new job but I'm not really wanting to take a pay cut. There are two reasons I'm leaving my job. One, because its so physical and two because the pay sucks. Why would I leave one labour job for another sort of labourish job for less pay?
I'm going to work out some pros and cons here.
Love the staff
Will have benefits in less than 4 months (really need dental soon)
Can look for another job that has more pay in the meantime (easier to take time off)
Already have future dates booked off that I need with no problem
I get really cheap farm eggs from my boss, lol
The pay SUCKS
It's physically draining. I have pain in my back and my hands (going to the doctor Monday)
My coworker broke the microwave (ok, ok it's not a reason to quit but it sucks) :D
Will save $60 on carpool ( I like carpooling though)
Is close to home
Get discounts on store items and at Bed and Bath ( we don't have Bed & Bath in my town)
The manager and her assistant seem really nice
I get to sleep in an extra hour because it starts an hour later than my current job
There are no guarantees I will like this job any better than the one I have now
I will make less money at this job ( I CANNOT afford to make less than I do now)
I get off an hour later which means I can't really get a second job because its kind of late in the day to start another shift somewhere else.
I will have to find a different job soon to make ends meet which means starting this job and possibly leaving in the near future (ugh)
So there you have it. There may be other reasons that I can't think of off the top of my head but that's basically what is rolling around in my brain right now. I just can't afford to make less. Bottom line... but I'm tired and sore. Sigh* BF says to set my sights higher, for a better paying job so I can work less and be more energetic. He's right. I underestimate myself.
So fellow bloggers and readers I really need your help and to hear your opinions on this matter. I was going to give notice tomorrow but now I think I will take the weekend to think it over. There's not much difference in telling my boss tomorrow or on Monday so I think its the best thing to do. I'm so indecisive!
I'm going to try and set up a poll. Let me know what you think PLEASE!!!
