Posted:well, I suspect after a year or so, you could probably get a better shift as manager. question is, how long do you think you'll be at that job. Is it the sort of work you'd like to do long term, if not necissarily at that particular place? If so, then it might very well be worth it to make the sacrifice. If you are going to university in a year though, perhaps you should take the personal time with your friends on saturday night instead since being a manager for 6 months in some area that is probably going to be completely unrelated to your degree won't make much difference one you have a degree.

If it meant I didn't have to work a second job, and I figured I'd be around a while, I think I would take the opportunity.

Posted:Consider whether or not its worth it. Often management is on salary, and you end up working more and getting paid less than you would if you were on regular-pay. And if someone calls in sick with no one to fill in, guess who gets pressure to cover?

You've been asked to do a highly responsible thing and your boss is putting a lot of trust in you, displaying how much you are respected. Take the job, you can always stop it later if it really doesn't work out for you.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.

That is absolutely true. I've had more fun since I turned 30 than I did before (not for lack of trying). It's like I finally figured out how to truely relax while goofing off with my friends or at parties or festivals or traveling or whatever. Having the extra money and self confidence, both of which tend to come with getting older, makes it a lot easier to enjoy things too.

If you take the manager job it will take you higher up the ladder and soon you will have more money and better days off to play. ubbangel

Posted:my advice... take the job- if you get too stressed you can always quit of your own free will and it will still look great on your cv, you don't even have to do if for long, just enough to prove that you have the skills...
good luck, whatever you decide

Posted:Take the job and go have fun. I've opened stores at 7:30 with no sleep a few years ago. It's possible but somewhere between that and going home early is preferable. I'm sure you'll find that balance yourself.

If you find it really sucks then you can always do something about it later...

Best of luck, I'm sure you'll be fine. smile
