A job seeker recently asked this…
I have interviewed with two separate companies. I have been offered the job at Company #1 which is a good job, but the offer is pretty much we are gonna pay you X amount. Do you want the job? No info on insurance, parking (it’s located downtown city). I wouldn’t mind the job but it’s my second choice.
Company #2 was a 5 step process (4 interviews, 6 interviewers, and a computer test). Very through and I know all the benefits already, but I don’t know if I will be offered the job yet. I emailed for an update after a week and was told they were further in the process but it would be longer.
My dilemma is that Company #1 wants an answer by Monday. I don’t want to tell them no and then also not get the job with Company #2. Is it bad if I accept the current offer from Company #1 and if 2-4 weeks after I start I leave bc I got the better offer?
