    I can’t believe that it is legal to not give someone benefits because you are part time! That would be illegal here in the UK!

    But to your questions

    1) don’t count your chickens – get the interview and the job first

    2) if you get the job go for it. This sounds like it is only to pay for university job not what you want to do when you finish. Take the job that pays the bills and works for you better.

    From what I’m reading, I see no downside to job #2 other than the vacation issue, which seems like something that can be worked out. But frankly, even if you have to cancel vacations, to save 45 min a day eac way communting–think of that as an hour and a half “vacation” you are picking up for yourself every day! That’s a huge difference. That alone would swing it for me.

    i would be up for the interview if they call and save stressing about the decision until they actually make an offer. i understand how the wheels start turning right away tho!

    OP: You’d get much better benefits AND growth opportunities if you worked for the financial institution I work for! (There’s benefits for permanent part-time & FT)

    @soontobemrsm11:  I started as a teller 4 years ago. Last September, I work in Accounting & Finance — where I have always wanted to end up doing. 🙂 Because I live in Alberta, we’re mono-phone. Some speak French, but you rarely see translations of English to French unless it was a federal message.

    Most full time jobs don’t even have benefits anymore. Always take the job with benefits.
