New job interview Input please ..(Interview scheduled!)

Well I sustained an injury at work today and lay hurt in front of the tv right now. Apparently horseplay at work is dangerous I like my job I work for one of my friends doing installs for a lumber company (sheds, kitchens, windows, doors, swingsets, floors and maybe decks soon) I like what I do but only work out in the field when theres work, otherwise warehouse work or leaving early are my options which neither is for me. But as I'm watching tv a friend calls and says his just official as of 2 weeks ago brother in law wants to know if I am interested in doing the software end of installing security systems. Very local vs my 4 city commute now, more money and seems like interesting work. I agreed to an interview to see what its about but I'm wondering do I stay where I am for job security (large company vs small co.) and work with my friend or go for the probably better opportunity with added risk? Any thoughts/opinions would be nice.

Your young, and if your a hard worker, you will always be able to get a job. Go for the better oppertunity and see where it plays out. You will never get anywhere staying still at the same old job. Go for it!

Go for it. If nothing more, it'll be a good learning experience and you'll be able to recover easily since you don't have a family to take care of

Re: New job interview Input please

sounds safer (no accidents) which means more riding time, which leads to more accidents.

go for it, a friend is not a reason to stay at a job.

Agree with everyone above but be VERY careful working for family. Having a relative as a boss (or worker) brings "extras"

Must obey the sheep dog

Re: New job interview Input please

Man you go through jobs like most people change their underware.

I say go for the new opportunity, as GFJ says, take risks. Do you want to work at Cyr for the rest of your life?

I love my job, it's great money and pretty secure, but I'm going for my Real Estate license. Something different that I can make my own hours at, be my own boss, take vacations without getting fired, and make a **** load more money. It's a tough choice to make when it comes down to it, but I say go for it.

Re: New job interview Input please

ok now that you've got the input how about some for me. I have an interview at AAA to be a tow truck driver tomorrow (sort of a last resort, I'll take it for now kind of deal) and Pepsi finally called me back and I have an interview to be a bay delivery driver (deliver to stores) on friday. so I don't really need input just wish me luck for friday.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Go for it, young dumb and single means you have the right. Sounds like a better career opportunity too.

Good luck to both of ya-s!

Maybe I'll put a burger on a plate and stick it under my rear seat in case I decide to do that
