I got an email yesterday from an old boss. Let me give you the background on the old boss and why I left. I was so happy working with him. It is where I met Max. They started having financial problems, so I was forced to find another job. I left, then Max did. Have all our eggs in one basket was scary. Shortly after we left he closed down and someone else bought the place and re-opened under another name and do a little different type of work, but the same industry. He still runs the place.
It is less than 1 mile from where our house is being built. Out of the blue yesterday he asked if I would be interested in working close to home. This came out of left field. Who wouldn't with gas prices, right? Anyway, we emailed back and forth all day. We discussed money, benefits and etc. It would be a little more money. About $200 more a month. Not much, but a little. Health insurance is better. I would have maternity on there where I don't now. It is casual dress 8-5, I could go home ever day at lunch. If I started before we move I would have to commute until then, but there is no traffice either way and would be more miles, but probably less time on the road due to traffic. Also I would be out there to go check on the construction of the house so Max and I wouldn't have to take so many trips in the evenings.
I like my job now okay, but it isn't my dream job by any means. I am loyal and feel bad for leaving or even wanting to leave. My old boss told me I could put in a notice and stay until they found someone to train. He would work with me. Just let me know the date I would for sure be there and he would have the position open for me. I wouldn't have to do any accounting anymore, which would be a great stress reliever. So, what do you think? I'm so stressed about possibly giving my notice. I have an email to my old boss to meet him today for lunch. I want to talk to him in person before I make any moves. Please tell your thoughts. I need some support in a bad way.
Have a great weekend!
Stop stressing darlin'....I think it sounds like a good move. Old boss is willing to work with you and obviously knows that you are a good person to hire from previously. I say GO FOR IT!!!! Give your notice and tell them that you can stay until they hire new, employers like that!!!! You said yourself it is not your dream job and look at all the good things that will happen if you take the new job!!!!!!! Email me, i want to know what you think now!!! smooches to you too!!! Some days I wish I still lived in Texas. :)
Good luck my friend!!!!!!
It *sounds* like you really want the new job. It sounds like it's a really GOOD job. I would go for the new position. If it were me.
But of course what Cherish said make the most sense. LOL
GL w/ your decision! Keep us informed on what you decide. :)
closer to your new home...even though you have to travel at first..that's just temporary
save on eating out by being able to go to your new home
insurance is the biggest especially maternity...babies cost you a fortune...and it doesn't get any better when they get older...trust me..toys just get more expensive
more money..hey it might only be 200.00 more but it's more
you liked your old boss so i am sure you will still like him if not like him more b/c now he doesn't have to worry about money
less stress on you and no accounting
sheesh...should i go on??
You could leave your current employment and in a while your new place of work could go under thus leaving you with no where. Not good especially at this time with I presume a mortage to take care off.
Just my 2 cents chicka :)
Best of luck coming to a decision! Keep us posted!
HELL YES YOU SHOULD GO BACK! You loved that place, plus, we could meet for lunch again! *grin*
Any of your old employees still there?
I think you already knew that is what you should do. You can also leave the current job on good terms by just telling them the honest truth about why you are going. This leaves the door open in case something happens down the line. Employers respect honesty.
Let us know how it goes!
Nutz <--- always doin' the math! *grin*
