would you go back to your previous job if you're called back?

imaging you're work in a department and you decided to go for another job but your former employer promises you good pay, good working conditions, better incentives and among others better than before just that you were doing well but not satisfied with how your boss handles you.

I'm actually in that dilemma right now. I've quit my previous job because I didn't like the way my boss treats me, and I was bored with doing the same thing everyday. Now, after a few months of working another job with a very low pay, I got in touch with some of my colleagues lately and they told me that my former boss has been demoted. Haha.. I loved my former job, i love the salary, i love the people and i like the way the management treats its employees. I can not say the same about my current job. I'm still trying to decide about this too, maybe i'll wait for some other people's suggestions about it.

I think you better take this opportunity to make more better working performance; to prove to your boss that you are there for you and your company's good sake and not for your boss's sake. I think it is not fair to leave that company just only for one reason, at least there must be three(3) reasons.

I left my previous job on Nov. 2005. If I would be asked to go back, I would not accept the offer. I hate the politics and the discrimination that I had observed there. Besides, there is no growth anymore and I always love growing. I am happier now with my present career as an entrepreneur and as a freelance writer. I am really growing here and I am enjoying every minute of it.

Thats a tough question because even though the money and benefits would be great, i would rather be happy and enjoying my job as opposed to not being satisfied with my boss. If I have issues with him/her I would rather move on to something else if things cannot be worked out.

When my last job ended (ignoring the temporary book store job I did last year), I was offered a transfer to another location. I turned it down. Avoided talking to the wife about it for a week--turns out she agreed with my decision. I was extremely unhappy in the job for the last couple of years (basically, I was wanting for the job market to improve before I left). So when they decided to close the location I was working at, I chose to became a poor college student and struggling writer instead. Monetary the decision has been costly, but the wife agrees that I am much happier now. So no, I won't go back to my last job.
