I read a few Threads on this forum and I think I can learn a lot from you guys.
I need your opinion with something.
I always had jobs that lasted a long time. Right now I am working for a retail store (large corporation) as an Assistant Manager (almost 4 years). Everything is fine, but I am ready for a change. Customer interaction all the time can be tough after a while.
I posted my resume on a few websites and people started to call me. I had an interview 2 weeks ago and it was great. I love the position, the company, the salary range, etc. They postponed the hiring for that position until mid to end of May, but they called me and let me know basically that they want me (of course, no guarantees. They have to interview other candidates).
While waiting for them to call me again, another company called me for a phone interview for a position completely different. Part-time (6 hours a day, mon-fri), working from home doing something that I love to do. And I could keep my full time job. The pay is VERY GOOD. I would be making more on this job part-time than what I make on my full-time job. And on the interview they already asked me if I would be able to work for them full-time if they have the need on the near future.
Sounds too good to be true, right? Here comes my issue.
On the company that I am waiting until the end of the month I would have my office, regular hours (8-5, mon-fri), I would make about $10,000 more than what I make now, full-benefits and opportunity to grow. The job will be kind of boring, but I'm OK with that. I met some of the people that work there and they seem to be good people.
On the part-time job I would be working from 6am to noon, Mon-Fri (from home after 1 month training. The training will be on the Schamburg area, so 2 hour commute everyday), and I could keep my job right now from 2pm to 10pm. I would be working 90 hours/week on both jobs, but I would more than double my income since the part-time job pays about $4,000 more per year than what I make now and working 10 hours less per week. On the part-time job I would never have any face-to-face interaction, so I am a little concerned about it. I've never worked like this before. I don't think there is much opportunity to grow on this job either.
So... What do you think I should do? My interview for the part-time job is Friday. If they make me an offer and I accept I would be giving up a job that I already know that will be perfect (in case they decide to hire me), but what if I don't accept the part-time job and the other company decides to hire someone else? And I don't know for how long I would be able to work 90 hours/week and keep my sanity.
Help me please! Any comments are welcome.
Thank you in advance.
