    @StillAMiss:  I’m curious – what are the perks of staying with your current company other than it’s the devil you know versus the one you don’t?

    It sounds like the quality of life you get with your current is taking a big toll on you.

    I am not sure I see any benefit to staying at home really. I get no commute, but the rest just doesnt tip the scales in favor of staying at your current job.

    Run lady! Accept and never look back. Besides… you never know your current job if they really wanted to keep you could offer you a better schedule and a pay raise. I wouldnt bank on it, but its certainly is not uncommon if you tell them that you have another job, but would prefer to stay if they could match XYZ requirements.

    @StillAMiss:  I would def take the new job. Yes the daily grind sucks but those swing shifts are taxing on your body. And wouldn’t it be delightful to have those weekends all to yourself???

    @StillAMiss:  I’ve never worked at home so I can’t talk too much about it, but I have a friend who does and she hates the lack of social interaction.

    I say go with the other job!  Like another poster said, off and rotating shifts are horrible for your body.

    @StillAMiss:  Get it all in writing so she doesn’t change up on you in 4 months.

    I’m glad that you got what you wanted. Do you feel like you’ll be missing out on the other benefits though?

    @StillAMiss:  Congrats and I agree with everyone who said to get it in writing.  As an HR professional, it’s always important to get documentation of any promises or offers of employment.

    @StillAMiss:  That’s a good outcome.  Even if there is no raise the extra $4k wouldn’t mean much if you had to commute 1hr a day between gas, wear and tear and the wated time.
