Please don’t curse us that way, @Joel. I thought we were friends.

Or, wait, is that $14 Canadian? Is Canadian money like Canadian beer? Stronger, right?

Could work in your benefit.
Nothing wrong with a counter offer. Lay it on the line what your new offer is and if they can match it or better it then you will have some more thinking to do.
At the end of the day it is whats best for the family and you.
Ive moved jobs a few times but it wasnt because i didnt like what i was doing it was because the new job would better suit for what i wanted for my family.
Congrats on the new job. :+1:

Does any of that $10.00 depend on meeting sales quotas or anything related to commission??? I worked with a guy twice once before he took that kind of job and then once when I hired him back at his old job, he was in line ahead of me to be offered the foreman job and would have been my boss had he not left for the greener grass and then found himself released due to a slow down in the industry.

Congrats and best of luck. I get head hunted all the time, but typically the salary is the same or less. I work at NASA as an accountant since 2002 as a contractor and the working environment is so flexible (working from home, take time off anytime I want) that the pay would have to be at least $10 more an hour before I’d consider leaving.

I’m sure your friend will understand why you need to lookout for yourself and further your career. Hopefully finding a replacement for you won’t be too difficult.

Thank you, yes it fairly flexible here as well. But I have to follow the money. I know he will have trouble finding a replacement. He does as well. The good part of that is I can just call him and come right back.
