Contemplating job opportunities
Wednesday, October 24, 2007 7:38 PM
So for the past 5-6 months at work, i've been thinking of finding another job for one reason or another. Last Friday i hit a breaking point and decided that i had had enough and would go to the staffing service that Tim works through and see what they could do for me Monday morning. Well, things didn't work out that easy monday morning, what with the computer not understanding the formatting of my resume and all, so i didn't go, but instead updated my resume on monster.
I got home tuesday afternoon, after a kinda stressful two days and there were two phone calls waiting for me on potential jobs. one i discarded right away becuase it was retail and i kinda want an office job again. the other i thought would be perfect. So i called them back as soon as i got home from work today and the lady wants me to come in for a job interview on Monday.
The onyl problem is that the job would start training on the following monday, which doesn't give me time to give a 2 week notice. and i feel bad about it. I worked for these people in high school. They gave me this job two years ago and it helped me to get out of a job i really didn't like at the time. They have been flexible with me during the deaths of my grandparents. I feel like i'm deserting them by taking this job, which hasn't even been offered to me yet, and yet i don't want to give up this opportunity.
the new job sounds like it is far better than the job i'm at. $2 more an hour, plus at least 5-10 more hours per week, with a pay increase at 6 months. Full bene's, which we found out the hard way we don't have through my husband's job.it's about 20 minutes from the house, which is 10 minutes farther than my current job, but it is FULL TIME which means, better pay, and better benes. i don't get any benefits where i am now. not even an in store discount. but can i do that to my employers, one of whom considers me to be like a daughter to her? I just don't know what i'm going to do...
