Oh yea def #2, if you are planning on staying there a while, you want a place you can grow.

I should not be allowed to type early in the morning while trying to supervise my child's school preparations... I cannot believe all the errors! In judgement and typing. Sorry.

I should mention ~ the pay being offered by both labs is not at the top of the pay range for my certifications. (Not gonna be making 60k) Only job #2 can GROW to 60k. Job #1 is at the top of what they can afford to pay me right now. If "the force" is strong within me and I take Job #1 and make it a more profitable lab there would be raises, possibly bonuses.

And for Job #1 I did type that Vacay and PTO had not been negotiated - not that they weren't available.

I just don't know if I want to be Mom or be Mothered... :/:

I didn't read what everyone else said, but if it is an hour drive for #2, the cost of fuel and wear and tear on your car is goign to make the job less pay. I say go for job #1 unless you just REALLY want to work with little kids all day. Not to mention, that is 2 hours extra those days you are away from your family.

# 2 sounds like the better opportunity, but you're the one that will have to make the drive! GL with whichever you choose!

Your first post stated that this was to make ends meet. You didn't really say how long you will be doing this?

If it is going to be something that you are going to do from now on, Job #2 is the path. New certifications and a very good chance for personal/proffessional growth.

If we are talking less than a year and this is just a job to get out of a crunch then Job #1 is the way. There will be responsibility but you will have assistance and a chance to deligate (lead position) and it won't really matter when you leave b/c you will have trained your replacement while there.

Sorry for the confusion - My 3 part time jobs are making ends meet - the job I choose will replace all of them, cut my hours by 30% and more than double my income. I plan to be there a long time, so I'm leaning towards the job with less responsibilty and more room for growth, however the cummute is a big draw back.

Number 2.

If you want to think about career and advancing then there is no question. It is an excellent resume builder and in the end, also sounds like a heck of a lot more fun and you have learnt and continued to advance. Plus, benefits sound really good and you need to start saving for retirement now.

The commute is a factor but maybe you can get a carpool, find a bus or something.
