Really like the position, people were great, and hours are what I was looking for. Downside is I make $21.50 an hour. Add in evening differential it's another $1.50 an hour add in weekend it's another $1.50. So I can make close to $25 an hour at times and at nigh it's $3 an hour.

Downside is I am part time some weeks working close to 50 and for a few weeks only working 24 hours.

The job I interviewed for requires less qualifications in regards tobdegree, but more technical qualifications are preferred. The manager when asked about my current pay was sure she wouldn't be able to get anywhere close to that number.
Looking at the possibility of $16 to $18 am hour.

Adding in differential since it's a night job be about $19 to $21 an hour. Add in parking is an additional $20 extra a month, paying $80 a month.

So now I am stuck on taking the job or turning it down. Really hoping to match my pay at $20 an hour.

Any insight can give?

If they can't pay what a good employee is worth, then I'd pass....

No sense is wrecking your paycheck or career for less money.

Where does the job fit in your long term plan?


A short term loss may be worth a long term gain. Being full time may give you more benefits and networking opportunities.

Benefit wise not to worried about. Part time benefits are the same. Except working full time guarantees you to receive the yearly bonus and eligible for $5000 for tuition reimbursement.
There's another full time job available, but haven't heard back yet. Debating to withdraw my application be working rotating shifts 5 days a week, tough with school.

Do online school to accommodate your schedule.

True planning to go to nursing school. Working night's is nice I am use to it and gives me time during the day. Where its doable, but more challenge tweaking my schedule when working rotating shifts.

I want to send a thank you email to the manager for the interview. Should I wait to use my work email or private email. Work email seems bit more professional.
