Just started new job and have a better job offer
Ok guys here is my dilema. I have been a POC for 2 years. I just got a job as a contract medic/firefighter and I would be working 24/48. There is not really any room to move up because it is contract. I have made it through my two orientation days and I am do to start on the dec. 31 as my first offical shift day. I am making $30,000 a year. I also applied for another job at the same time (the one I really wanted). Well they called me today and offered me the job. I would much rather work there and the pay would be near $40,000 a year. I could really use the extra money and would rather work there. Also there is room to move up in this job I was thinkg about working 48/24, but that will get old fast and do not think the first department will let me do that after coming off shift of the second department.
My question: Do you think it would look really bad if I went in and told the first department that I had another job offer and that I was going to take it. I do not want to make a bad name for my self in the fire service. I know things get around fast in the fire service and I would hate to make a bad name for my self that would follow me around.
Any advice would be great because I have a day to decide what I want to do.
