I have been fortunate to have a great week and wish the best of luck to the unemployed. I have a pending job offer to work for a trucking company. The salary is 44K and they offer insurance and benefits. They sent me the offer and I accepted, now we are only waiting on a background check and drug test for a start date. I also had an interview to work in a union office. I didn't think much of this because I already had a job offer, I just wanted to see what they had to say. I really liked the managers there. The starting salary is going to be at least 36K, but I would be a union employee with the benefits. The salary would go up 2.5% yearly and there is the job stability. The manager really liked me and said he will try to speed things up to get me on board because I explained to him that I have a pending job offer. He was looking for a data entry clerk, but also wants someone to act as a manager in the union office. These are the pro's of each: Trucking company: Higher starting salary Union office: Closer to home, seems stable, holidays are paid with bonuses, salary progresses up every year. Cons: Trucking company: Schedule is not always consistent, might work overnights. Not a union. Union office: Do not have an offer yet, only the manager's word that he liked me and wants to push for me despite having other interviews. Any advice would be appreciated. I am leaning towards the union position, I just don't know how long I should stall on the previous job offer. I don't want to end up losing both. Anyone have experience working in either a union office or transportation industry?
