    Got some sort of a job offer but confused and cannot decide

    Job A:

    -very physically demanding, involving constant bending, standing, lifting, pushing
    -is probably permanent
    -pays probably about 6.19 pounds per hour

    Job B:

    -less physically demanding, only involves standing for long periods and moving light things
    -not sure about the pay but I guess it's something like 7 pounds per hour
    -temporary but might lead to permanent depending on the need
    -is not yet advertised but approximately will be advertised very soon (it's a guarantee it will be advertised and the place takes on everyone)

    Which one is better? I do have small condition where I cannot do difficult physical activities (was tested by experienced doctors and was told to avoid physically demanding jobs). I'm worried that I might make it worse doing job A

    I haven't yet officially accepted it because I have to come for an interview on Monday I don't want to make a mistake and later to regret because I do make mistakes occasionally and later really regret what I've done.

    Personally I would say job B just because you don't want to risk making your condition worse but obviously it also comes down to which job you think you'll enjoy more - do you think you'll massively prefer one over the other?

    I agree with Liv_97; you definitely should not go for Job A if it's going to make your condition worse, so if it was me, I'd go for the safer option(:

    Thanks At some point I was like obsessed with jobs like A and was desperate for money, even though there are people who I know very well that were in exact same job and quit because it was very difficult to handle. Oh well, if I won't be able to make Job B into permanent, I can always go for something else By the way, Job A is Room Attendant and Job B is Postal Worker :rolleyes:

    That small condition is nothing serious and it's considered to be normal but once I did some physical activities and got into trouble. I'm now waiting to be tested again and to see if I am able to apply for physically demanding jobs at all
