    I would take the job and keep applying elsewhere for a full-time position.

    i would take your old job back at this point. Especially if you are looking to go part time in the future, because they do seem like they would be ok with that. If you want a full time position, I would take it until you can find something that better meets your needs.

    @lovekiss:  +1 I agree. You don’t have insurance now I’m presuming so making money and not having insurance isn’t a whole lot different if that’s your only contention and as sh wrote you can still look elsewhere. 

    They realize your value now so you have some leverage.

    @ButterflyButterfly:  I think you should start fresh somewhere else. As you said, insurance is not an issue here . Taking a job just because you are comfortable with the people and setting is not a good reason. How about the pay, benefiy package and career potential? 

    I am an accountant too and I have worked at 2 company in the past 4 years, and I am ready to move on to another place. My reason is that we are young and there are so much to learn out there. To be honest, if I know what I am doing in and out and there is no more incentive, it is time for me to leave.

    @ButterflyButterfly:  I would take it, especially if you are planning on having kids. Im sure you will have a welcomed returned. I would much rather work where people know that they need me, than risk it somewhere else. 

    This may not be ideal but maybe legally marry FI for the insurance (if need be) prior to the wedding. I think anyone would understand, especially with having a well known diagnosis- people will know you had no choice.

    @ButterflyButterfly:  i would take it, and do what my FI and i did…my company offers VERY EXPENSIVE insurance…and we couldn’t afford it, and i was stuck without coverage, so we went and got a marriage license and found an officiant who was willing to do nothing more than sign our license declaring us married without a ceremony or anything – so we are married on paper – but we don’t consider it an emotional marriage until we exchange rings and vows in may!

    FI’s company added me to his insurance effective immediately.

    well…i guess he’s technically my husband now…but i don’t like referring to him as such because i don’t want to ruin our upcoming “real” wedding!

    Take it, but don’t stop looking for a more stable full time/full benefits position. I would feel zero loyalty to a company that had previously laid me off, so I wouldn’t feel bad about leaving shortly after they hired me back on. Plus, it will be much easier for you to find a new job if you are currently employed – many employers hesitate to interview candidates that are not currently working.

    @ButterflyButterfly:  If I found a new position that gave me the hours I wanted, the benefits I wanted, and was something I was interested in, you bet I’d jump ship. I would feel absolutely no loyalty to a place that laid me off. None. Use them the way that they use you. It’s business. 🙂

    @ButterflyButterfly:  I’d work here while looking elsewhere for fulltime employment. It feels to me like they’re using you kind of – they want you to help without committing to you fully.
