    I think I would hold out for other better offers. I had a job much like what you’re describing what you think the new job will be like, and it was really miserable. It seems like you’re on a good roll with the interviews lately.

    I’m the kind of person who was hired for a crapp job in the morning and accepted… In the afternoon, I got a job that paid 150% what the first position offered, with more hours and benefits. I took the new job and folded on the lower offer.

    I don’t understand why you’re considering taking a job that pays less than you make now and with all the added stress of management yelling at you.  This doesn’t sound like they “treat their employees well” at all…

    dont take it. i have a job now where i get reprimanded but it’s “not my fault” and its so stressful. save yourself the trouble. also, don’t take a job where you make less AND get yelled at. it doesn’t sound worth it.

    I would counter offer 1-2$ more per hour than what wouldn’t to make. You make 15$ an hour at your job now, I’d tell them I want to make 17$. 

    Not sure what kind of negotiation you put forth today. 

    If they say no, I’d reject the offer.

    I think you don’t want to work for a company where they mention casually you might be yelled at. Combined with low pay, it doesn’t sound ideal.

    If you have to make a decision now, ask to start in 2 weeks and back out if you can get the other better job first.

    Wait, you want to take a pay cut to be yelled at? Why?

    @canthugallcats:  i’d still be wary of a work environment you know could be problematic. if your situation isn’t dire, I’d keep looking.

    I took a job somewhere I was uncertain about the work environment, thinking it would be an adjustment, but that I’d get used to it. I quit 6 months later because I couldn’t take it any more.

    Honestly, I would wait for another offer because being yelled at all the time is so NOT fun! And can be very taxing on your mental state.

    I recommend holding out. Fiance had a job he loved, but with a boss who criticized him harshly and yelled at him fairly often, and it honestly ruined his experience.  He was beat down and exhausted every day.  You’d be amazed how much the boss matters when it comes to a job, even if it’s your dream job…based on my guy’s experience, I have to say, don’t do it.

    Myself, I cannot stand to be yelled at, so I would wait for a job where I wouldn’t be crying everyday.
