I Need Advice

So I need anyone's opinion on this. I have two jobs lined up one I started this week and the other I'm supposed to start on December 2nd if I dont like the first one. I have an extensive background in Mechanical ,Troubleshooting and Maintenance

The first one is pretty much Repairing grocery carts and Equipment inside of a Retail store at 19 an hour with a company truck and a company phone. My previous experience overpasses this job by far but its income.
The second one is a Commercial Roofing company and they want me to be an advisor for them at 50k a year with a Company phone and a Company car paid training for a week in another state but the only issue I feel like this one has is they dont pay for expenses till after 1 year of employment as far as food goes.

I'm stuck in a rut I keep looking for work seeing if something better comes along. #joboffers

Lucrative out of State job offers do not always lead to increased prosperity if other calculations have not been considered or explored. It is always wise to pray before you stray.

Hi Robert how are you doing? well the only thing that i can say is which one do you think that you can benefit from the most at this point and time.I don't know what to tell you but the only thing i can say is go with your heart. Do what you think that is best for you because they are both good jobs with excellent pay but on the other hand if its going to take you out the way and cost you more maybe you should think about it, before you make a move . Too me the best things is to do is weigh in the odds and you should come up with your answer good luck wishing you the very best.

Honestly is kind of tuff but honestly I will consider the second job because it's more concrete because at least after one year you are going to receive benefits and you going to receive paid training at least for 50k. Another thing you can accept the other job for 19 dollars and hour but if it over passes then you have to say to yourself which one is more beneficial to you for the future and which one do you feel most comfortable with. To me it seems as if you are weighing to the second one. This is the advice that I always give to myself, " Go with your gut feeling and weigh all the option out to buy" I hope that you and I know that you will make your right decision and I hope that I am making sense and I wish you all the best and you willl make the correct choice. All blessings

Although the no expenses for the first years condition seems awkward, you can deduct these work expenses from your taxes as itemized deductions. Save receipts and keep logs for mileage, meals, lodging, and other expenses. By logs I mean written logs; as those don't run of juice, break if you drop them, or get hacked.

For job number 2, you can write off around $50/day as per diem on your taxes until the year is up and they pay for it... it sounds like the better job in the long run if you can pay for those expenses for a year....repairing grocery carts sounds like it would get old quickly and repetitive, dull work

Depending on where you live C&S Wholesale is a fine place to work on Big trucks

My opinion is to stay with the first one. Yes the obvious choice would be the second one, but all things seem great when the grass looks greener. You need stability now. Time can make that progress for you later so the bills do not hit while you wait for benefits to kick in. Life does not wait for promotions or pay raises. Life just moves. Patience is the key. You can do this.
