    current job pros:
    -Most stable job in the company
    -max $73k with zero overtime. over $100k within reach with overtime.
    -excellent union. Although I hate unions.

    Current job cons:
    -heavy, heavy use of chemicals.
    -work in dark, cramped spots 6+ hours a day.
    -possibly layoff still there.
    -possible to be designated overtime any weekend. Up to twelve hours a day weekdays
    -limited ability for advancement

    New job pro:
    -computer job
    -no overtime required but optional
    -not physically, mentally demanding or draining.
    -more professional dress attire.
    -Ability to move up.
    -looks great on resume
    -starting pay more than current
    -no max pay. Guaranteed 2.5% yearly pay increase

    New job con:
    -one of least stable jobs
    -no max pay ceiling.
    why is the second job so unstable?

    personally i like stability. and you are making excellent money now.

    but there is the fact that the new job is easier and you get a raise right away.

    question: if you get the new job then get laid off from it, can you get another job in Boeing or are you done there then?
    I could get a new job. But, I'd have to get it from the street. Not internally. A lot harder.

    Essentially its health vs. security.

    Its engineering. engineers aren't necessary on established programs. Its just the nature of that specific business. an engineers job is to work themselves out of work. Essentially.

    Well technically its a manufacturing planner job. They work with engineering. I see job postings for planners all over the place outside of the company. So its not an unheard of job.

    I'm going to the interview and if I get offered the job, I'm taking it. Sometimes we take risks in life.

    Risking my security is better than risking my life and sanity. Plus, in all honesty, I don't care for unions all that much. Sure, they do a lot of things very well, but when it comes time for layoffs and ****** workers with seniority stick around and good workers lower on the totem pole don't just makes me mad. The new job would be performance based, so if I get laid off, it's my own fault to a degree.

    Hell, if I get laid off, I can get on anywhere after companies see I worked in ME for the biggest aerospace company on the planet.

    Its just tough because I'm trying to buy a second home right now. Whilea layoff wouldn't kill me, its not ideal. My wife is planning on semi-retiring I'm a few years and that won't be possible if I'm laid of.

    If its second shift, I won't even consider it. So, that could suck.

    ^ Yeah, you nailed both points. Should have stayed for his development, but who knows if he would have ever been a real leader/team-player.

    I was surprised about Terrence Ross going 8. I knew he was good, but not that good.

    Word. My second cousin or something is one of the many of the electrical union out of work list, and because he doesn't have much experience, he isn't getting work, and he techinically isn't supposed to work anywhere else, so he has to sneak a job.
