I would take the $8/hour job. The other job may be more money, but you are probably going ot get tired of that schedule quickly and quit.

well it all depends on you if you dont have anybody at home that would miss you then i would take the $10/hr job. but if you have family and especially if you have kids $8/hr is a small sacrifice to spend more time with your kids.and it also depends on how old you kids are too. if they are younger then they will definitely need you more.

it fully depends on your situation and preference. for me...i won't spend my whole time to work. i want to do many things else: doing my hobbies, reading, enough sleeping, well, many thing. so i will choose the first choice though i will get less earning.

If I were you, I would take the one higher pay. Because, you start higher, when you get the job next time, it is easy for you to get a job higher than $10 an hour. And you can save more, after you have more money, you have capital, you could start your own business and investment to get a good cycle in your life. This is my opinion. How you choose it depends on which job you like the most.

I think 8am to 6pm is a good job to hold, it only pays $8 an hour but gives you more free time. The 5am till 11pm job will pay you like you have 2 jobs but you won't have a life man....work, work go home and sleep. It really depends what you want ..some money and a life or more money but no life?

Wow. I would take the job that pays more if you really need the money. If you do not need that much money, then I would take the one with less hours. You will be so tired working the other job for many hours. It will take your time up daily.

hi dear friend. if i was in your place i wd have accepted the one whch is paying 10 dollars per hour. in aweek of five days and 8 hours daily working it comes to 40 hrs. per week and that means a difference of 80 dollars per week. a big difference . you can always buy extra things, save this money or use for charity , whatever you wish. well the timings . there is a plus point. you will have extra hours before the day is out and u can use it the way u like, mylot or some other options are available. another secret benefit for health. one who rises early definitely lives long!!!!
