Job #1 - Retail/Food Service (working in a bistro in a furniture store), $8.15/hr, would qualify to buy in for health and dental after 90 days if I work part time; if I make it to fulltime (and 25 hrs/week might be considered full time; I have to check) I would get free healthcare and dental, with pretty regular raises. Discounts on furniture, Discount on joining an L.A. Fitness, low cost meals.|
Job #2 - Hotel/Front Desk, probably higher rate per hour (possibly starting at $8.24, but maybe up to $8.49) and will be getting a slight cost of living increase in January, as well as a raise after 90 days. Possibility of some tips as well, as I'd get to drive a van to the airport. Would have to work 30 hr weeks (maybe even 32 hrs) to get healthcare after 90 days, which I don't think I can handle with my class schedule next semester.
Both jobs seem to have really nice managers, I know at least one employee at each place, and now I'm torn.
Both jobs are a significant wage increase (at least in my mind) over my $7.50/hr I'm making now, but my current job allows for a lot of study time, which neither of these will have. I'm living at home until I finish my degree, don't have many expenses ($50/mo for car insurance, $10/mo phone, about $50/mo for co-pays for my doctors visits and medicine).
Which job would you take, TQC?
Why is it that when you have no job and you're looking for one, you can't find one for ages, but then when you have one you get more offers? :( This would have been so much easier if I hadn't gotten one of them.
