So for those who read my last couple of posts I've been on the hunt for a new job in the area I'm planning to move to. After a couple of weeks of no phone calls, ignored emails, and "we aren't hiring" responses I've finally got some call backs and offers! The only problem is the offers I'm receiving are A LOT less than what I'm making now. Right now I'm currently working at a high end department store and doing very well, I make good commission that usually doubles my hourly and have a great group of people I work with and an amazing discount! It is just very far from where I need to be. And even if I transfer to a different branch of the same department store my hourly and commission rate won't be any better than my current offers from other places. With the offers I'm currently receiving it would only leave me about $300 a month after rent for gas (but I have a Prius c and school is 5 min away and work at my best offer is 20min) groceries and school supplies which I'm afraid would be cutting it pretty close. I'm in the process of trying to negotiate but a lot of the boutiques said they wouldn't be able to do much. I have to be moved in by September 1st so time is running out. Should I accept one of the offers? Or go ahead and move in and commute to my current job (2.5 hours away but only $4 a trip) until I can find a better offer? Any advice would be appreciated!
