I don't know if it would be worth applying

I found this add, and I was considering part time afternoons or if they wont work around my other schedules, than work midnights. BUT its a 40 minutes drive from my house, I cant find a job that will work around my schedule right now, and I want to put so much money away to save to move out. http://jobs.localwork.ca/jobs/detail/51050663/15?utm_source=Indeed&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=Indeed

I opened the link and am curious about the type of job offered. Since I'm not from Canada, is this a grocery type of work? I am late on this one. I hope you find what you are looking for.

If it will not any conflicts to your time table, that's a great thing.

I'd say your decision on whether or not you apply depends on just how badly you want to move out. If you can stand being where your at until something better comes along then it may be a good idea to wait. If you want a 2nd job then I'd say give it shot so you can at least see if you'd get an interview. If so then maybe it's meant to be and the job ends up going well.

I'm in the same boat as you. I also found a job that I wanted to apply to, but it's about a 40 minute drive (depending on traffic). It was an overnight shift so there wouldn't have been any conflicts with my current job. However, it was only part-time (5 hour shifts) and with it being that far away, I didn't think it'd be worth it, even if I used my car (which gets about 30mpg) for work. It would have cost about $10 a day for the gas alone. So I didn't bother to apply. Too bad the shifts weren't longer. I would have jumped at the chance then! Happy mylotting!

I think there would be some things to consider. Is the pay worth your time and gas for you to drive there? My hubby works about a 45 minute drive from home, but that's 45 minutes at best. During busy traffic hours, it can take well over an hour to get there or back home. Gas prices are only going up it seems - and although his car is working well for now, we know sooner or later he's going to have to get another car as it's getting old - it's getting a lot of wear and tear with these long drives. So that's another thing - maintenance on the car and putting the miles on the car. For now, my hubby goes in super early (so he doesn't hit morning traffic) and he comes home a bit late (8:30pm-ish, so he misses the evening rush hour). Although it's long hours at work, fortunately the company is very generous about overtime (and other things and benefits), so it's totally worth it for him. Don't forget the poop-out factor too . . . you don't want to be too exhausted to drive all the way home after working - especially if you've already had a hectic, long day! Good luck!

If moving out means enough to you than you should take the job even if it proves to be somewhat inconvenient. Just stick it out for a while until you have the money to move out. After you do you'll think back and see that it was worth it. I hope it goes well and you're able to get the job. I know myself it can be hard to find the perfect job for yourself but I see it like this. If you need the money and your goal, which in this case is moving out, is worth it to you than you should do whatever you can to get the money even if its not the perfect job you've dreamed of.

If its an uncertainty that it will work around your schedule I would suggest looking elsewhere. Don't go through more trouble when you'll end up having to drop it otherwise is what I say. Or at least have to switch around your schedule if you're able, to fit their needs. That I wouldn't enjoy but that's a decision you make if you feel you could do so. Best of luck in the search that you will find something that sounds perfect for you.
