    If you can swing it financially for that 1-1.5 months then I would do it. You hate your job and that really takes a toll. Sure the new job is only 50 cents more, but its still going in the right direction! Plus you have a fresh start with a new position that you might actually like. Go for it!

    Nah, not enough money to leave your current job, and who is to say it will be any better.

    @MrsPaperFlowers:  Other than the slightly higher rate of pay does it have any other benefits? Better hours,closer to home for example?

    I would say yes as long as you could make it financially. It beats working at a place you hate. At least at this new place you could grow, and if it is somewhere you like why not?

    If you can make it financially with those 30 hours a week at the beginning, I would take the new job. If you think you’ll be happier there, it’s totally worth it.

    Happiness > money, and the first month and a half will fly by. You’ll be fine and making just as much as you do now in no time. Ditch your miserable job.

    To be honest, you won’t even notice that $0.50 raise, thanks to taxes. But it might be worth it just to leave the job you have now. Is there anyway you could juggle both places until you would work full time hours at your new job?

    @MrsPaperFlowers:  If you hate where you are, then being paid more is not really the point, being in another company is, if you can swing it, do it…you’ve hated that place for a while….

    Also, do you and your husband not have combined finances? I’d hate for you to feel like you have to stay in a job that you can’t stand because you’re worried about pulling in your share of the bills.

    @MrsPaperFlowers:  There are a few things to take into account here:

    – Does the new workplace/job seem like something you will like better than your current job?

    – What does DH say about this (which plays a part, since it would affect your finances)

    – How will the commute differ? Gas/travel expenses can add up, so I’m hoping you’ll say the NEW job would be a shorter commute, because that’s a plus!
