Actually, you would take the $2.00 per hour raise as it is permanent versus the one-time bonus is exactly as it states, one-time and not permanent.

Let’s see … $2.00 an hour vs $5,000 one time bonus? (5,000/2080) comes down to $2.40 an hour.. key phrase.. “one-time bonus”

Depends if it’s a permanent position and how many hours a week. I would take the bonus because the job description if vague.

Take the $2.00 per hr. The bonus would be taxed at a higher rate so the net pay would be less

Depends on my starting salary. If I'm making min wage at $15.00 an hour, I would take the $2 raise as I would come out ahead by $60 for the year instead of taking the one time bonus. I would also see more money in my overtime wages by taking the salary bump.

I would take the $5000 bonus. Because you don't know how long you will be there. A bird in the hand is better than $2.00 in the bush.
