Which position is best?

1 hour commute to job that pays 15/hr. Or drive 20 minutes for job that pays 12/hr. Which would you take?


1 hour commute to work would run me $60.00/week

Both positions are full time

    Based on the info you posted, remain unemployed and don't bother the rest of us.

      But if I'm unemployed that gives me more time to bother you.. Lol

    Your description is completely irrelevant to which position is best.

    That's four times you've asked the same question. Once is sufficient.

    * SIGH *  Most Americans cannot understand simple math.

    Actual cost of driving a car is over $0.50 / mile.  That is for gas, oil, maintenance, tires, fixed costs.

    That is with a wimpy economy car, better cars cost considerably more.

    Assuming you average 60MPH, assuming two-way commute.  8-hour day.  Daily cost:


    $120 - $30 commute :  $90 = Better

    $96 - $10 commute : $86

    If one-way commute:

    $120 - $60 commute :  $60$96 - $20 commute : $76 = Better

    Take the job where you will make $20/hr after 12 months

  • 1 month ago

    $15x40=600-$60= $540.00

    Which you would be making more.  

    All so the $12.00 you would still be paying into gas, oil, etc.  

    You should allso weigh her options on health care.

    I'd go for the one that's closer just because I wouldn't want to be driving for 2 hours every day.

    how are the health benefits, tuition reimbursement, chances for advancement, and the people you work with in each job?  It's the intangibles that make you stay or leave a job.
