Thread Name: BS: Need Job Advice FAST!
Subject: RE: BS: Need Job Advice FAST!
I went ahead and took the new job. I talked briefly with my (now former) supervisor, and while he was definitely disappointed, he made no effort to shame or berate me; he simply requested that I make arrangements to have my uniforms, etc returned to the company's offices. He only wanted to know what the deal-maker (deal-breaker, in his case) was. I told him it was the better schedule, which is almost 100% of the whole matter (the other reasons were a poor location in a rotten neighborhood, and basically inept and unsavory characters as co-workers and clients.

In short, I do believe that if I contacted him at some later date and needed work, it would be at least more likely than not that I would be able to work for his company again.

My pastors would totally have understood if I was no longer able to attend services, but the schedule and the location and the more familiar commute (lots of shortcuts that I knew already, as opposed to places where one DOESN'T want to get lost at night) were just too good to pass up.

As it stands right now, I've got at least a full 2-week paycheck coming in from the old job right as I will need it, and it falls where a pay period with the new job would be, so there won't be any lapse in income as far as I can tell.

All in all, after one day at the new place, seems to have been a good decision. Time will tell the overall tale, but I am optimistic.
