I'm going to an interview today and I'm about 90% sure I'll get the job based on what I was told during a phone conversation. I'm currently working for the State -- it doesn't pay a lot and the morale there is not good (it got so bad I turned a notice in in March but was asked to stay at least until I found something else) but it is a very stable job, it has good hours M-F, I've already put in 3 years towards my 25 year retirement, and I'm afraid if I leave I might not get back into the State again if I need to.
This new job pays better and has benefits but it isn't nearly as stable as the State job and the hours are hectic (I would have to work Tuesday-Saturday and though I would get at least 40 hours it is not always at a set time, I would basically be on call Tues-Sat to go in at 8 or 1 and some days would be short, others really long).
My hope was to find another job within the State, but I've been applying for a very long time with no luck. Should I take this job if it's offered to me?
