here is my situation. i have about 40 lawn accounts. i have a full time machinist job. (no day shift positions ever available) i work 2nd shift 2:30 to 1am. mon-thur, friday's off easy job(easy for me since i've been here for a long time) pay is good good bonuses (got $8000 last year) 5 weeks vacation, not a typo. i've been here 8 years and i get 5 weeks. my current job allows me to mow from about 8am to 1pm mon-thur and 8am-5pm on fridays. i can knock out quite a few jobs in a week. got married in november, wife can't stand me being on nights. she wants to see me more. i can understand her reasoning. all my other friends have "normal jobs". i got a job offer from a nice shop about the same distance away from my home. day shift position 6-2:30 mon-fri. $2 more an hour more difficult work slightly less 401k match not as good of medical ins 3 weeks vacation, they were at 2 weeks but they can give me 3 they said. expanding shop. higher pay potential i'm in limbo on what to do. i love mowing lawns during the day. my business has really been growing this year. to the point where i can't keep up. i also like where i'm working. if i take this day shift job i'm not sure i could get very many lawns done when i get home in the evening. i'd love to just mow lawns in the summer full time and find a part time machining job in the winter(i don't plow) my wife has a job and would cover our health insurance for now. she said in a couple year if we have kids that she doesn't want to work. i'm not sure my lawn business could support a family. i'm not sure where the question is in all of this. i was just hoping maybe someone out there might have some advice or maybe can relate to my situation.
