Should I or shouldn't I?

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

I have been debating on applying for a job at a new T-Mobile call center that is opening near by. I swore I would never work in a call center on the phones again when I left my last job. They are open 24/7 so that means working holiday's and weekends and possibley even nights. I was looking for IT dept openings and nothing is listed. But there are plenty of CSR's. So, do I apply for something that I know I can do, and have done it for just under 4 years but don't really want to do, or keep looking for something I WANT? It's really close to the house so I could come home for lunch (if I get an hour lunch) and see the silly dog that isn't used to being home alone and I can get some money coming in but more then likely end up working yucky hours and holidays?

Just because where I worked the last time at a call center doesn't mean this one will be as bad, right?

    Cindy - You know I just took a job that we know I don't really want, but I need because of money issues. I can't tell you what to do on this, but you know what I did. *HUGS* I hope you and Mark can figure things out.... I figure doing something that pays and still looking for employment is better than sitting at home making nothing and looking for employment you know. *HUGS*

    I agree with the first comment, only you can make the choice and unless it is a must then why not continue to look?! Then again I've noticed when you are working and still looking that dream job appears, hmmmmm. Don't jump at it if you will be unhappy.

    I think only you can make that decision. However, how bad do you need the job and money? I think that sometimes the hours vs pay vs personal needs one out weighs one another. However, my personal opionion. If you need the work then go for it but, don't stop looking for what you really want. If you really don't have to work and you are doing ok. then keep searching for that perfect job.

    I think your right about the one place vs another though. the people that you encounter make a huge difference in the enviroment so, you may go and find out that you love it. I

    sorry...I am not much help :)
