The job in fact is in the food industry. It'* the only area I have experience right now and in Michigan, it'* also the only thing really hiring. But, like I said I can make as much as I'm willing to make. Everytime you move, you make on average $1,500 more/year per move. (excluding promotions in job title.) Within a year most people are making closer to 40k. The work schedule is what made me not want to consider the job. It is 50 hours a week. Five ten hour days per w eek, and two consecutive days off guaranteed. I'm pretty sure my shift is going to be 5AM-3PM. They do not want you to work more than 50 hours.

Daily Total: 12.00 11.00 12.00 11.00 11.00 4.00 2.00 / 63.0

I'm well aware of that, This is my first job out of school. I'll be there a year next month. Next position up is salaried, pays significantly more AND i get a yearly bonus based on store performance.

I've got an unheard of house downpayment set aside, my current employer will match 2-3x my dollar for retirement savings after profit sharing has been distributed, and I'm able to save on my own as well for retiring with my pay.

No kids now, not for years And I'm not going to have a gold diggin' wife either.

Congrats on the job, you can do a lot with 31K, and from the looks of it that'* a 50% jump from your old job. Rich or poor it all comes down to how you manage it

Another thing I thought of, but forgot to post. Michy'* economy hasn't been good for, well a while. Yes you have lots there between family, friends, etc, but Moving away isn't necessarily bad. Prob have more opportunities down the line if you're someone else if things keep going the way they do there.

Yup! It'd be about 1/2-3/4 cost of anything i'd consider... I'd prefer my cashflow to be higher on a montly basis before getting a mortgage, and all the other bills and such with home ownership, and the housing market to level out, or even begin an upswing.

Just an update.. I turned down the new job. I didn't want to relocate, especially since in the paperwork they gave me after being hired said things like you can't make long term lease agreements (more than six months) because relocation commonly happens often. That'* not the lifestyle I want of always moving. Even moving once is bad enough for me. It'* just how I am. I called the Rep and told him that the job wouldn't fit into my lifestyle and appologized for not taking the position... They chewed me a new one and left me feeling completely worthless and humiliated. I was stunned about how I was treated. These are a few of the things said to me.

"We never really did like you much anyways. We were doing you a favor by hiring you."
"I had a bad feeling about our association since the beginning."
"You wasted our time, I can't believe how you are."
"Have fun wasting your time at a dead end job instead of coming here."
"Don't even think about contacting us for a job again. The offer is off the table for you. We want people worth our time."

I don't think any job should treat someone like that. One thing that told me to turn down the job was I had severe anxiety and a horrible feeling in my gut anytime I would think about the job. I was hired nearly a week ago and I still couldn't sleep at night. That was telling me something.. Regardless, I contacted my area manager at my current job, and he said I can get my job back definitely. He even gave me a slight raise. I just feel really crappy right now with this whole job thing. I think changing jobs has got to be one of the most stressful things I"ve gone through just because I absolutely hate change.

What they said was TOTALLY uncalled for. I would contact a corporate office, and let them know of the things the representative said to you.

I think it'd be more of a waste of time to finish the training or start working and quit then. my start date wasn't even for more than two weeks from now. I just think it'* better to say 'no thanks' now than later on.

I do the hiring in my current job position and I've never treated a job candidate that way. In the times I have been told they were going to decline the position a polite "thank you for showing interest in our company anyways, and I wish you the best of luck in the future." You don't beat the person into the ground and make them feel like an insignificant pion.
