Jobs that everyone hates

I'm really tired of my job. On top of disliking my job, I've had my hours cut severely so I'm working 6-10 hours less per week than I used to. I'm spending my paychecks practically before I get them. I applied to a few jobs and got rejected, and then my friend, who works at one of those huge corporations that has a huge turnover rate and hires everyone, told me about her job and I applied for a position.

I applied on Sunday. They called me back yesterday. I called back today and they told me they were going to put me into training on May 24, but I told them I wanted to give two weeks' notice at my job so they said they'd have someone else call me to train for a different position that starts training on June 7.

I'm worried because they obviously accept everyone who applies, you don't have to have any qualifications whatsoever, the training starts almost immediately and I didn't even apply for the position they want me to train for (in fact, they didn't even tell me what the position WAS) so they're obviously really desperate.

BUT the job pays a little more than my current job and would guarantee me 40 hours per week. Even though I would only make about 35 cents more per hour than I do now my paychecks would be almost twice as much! But I'm worried that since the job has such a high turnover rate that I would end up quitting after two weeks and then I would be completely out of a job.

Should I take the risk and start doing this job? Working both jobs at the same time is not an option. I've tried working two jobs before and it's always been a nightmare.

It's not telemarketing, btw.
