    I wanna get an opinion from my S80 fam. Today I was offered a full-time position as a stock handler at the library I work at. Currently I'm a custodian and I make 13.07 an hour, part time. The position I turned down was 11.00 an hour. Despite the fact I would make 100 dollars more a paycheck, and I would have paid vacation/sick time I decided against it. This is a purely financial decision for me. I plan to peruse another part time job and make more money then 100 extra a paycheck.

    I'm very close to a full time job as a custodian where I'd make 13.07 and hour, plus a yearly raise, and benefits. It's also a Union job. My real goal is to go to study a trade (welding/carpentry) and make good money as I don't have a college degree. Personally I feel that I made the right decision because I have time to go back to school and can make more money than I would if I took this job. Opinions? (also I'm 22, long term plans aren't what I'm looking at rn)

    Do what u need to do, people.on here should not be your financial planner for u. I worked at bank part-time had benefits and paid vacation and quit cause the pay was shit. I left to work as a temp to hire at a major Corp with no beneifts and I had to ride a shuttle bus for a year and half and only making 2 dollars more so i can put my foot in the damn door. I grinded and now I'm full time with benefits and like literally 70 hrs of paid vacation still left 401 k all that shit. Just do what u think works and see what happens.

    @King of Kings is 100% right. But from what you've said in OP I can totally see why you made that decision.

    Life is too short to think too long about these things, just go with what u think is best!
