    I have just secured a job (weekends only) however it’s 38 miles from where I live and the pay is £8.31 an hour. Should I accept the job even tho it’s so far from me? What do u guys think. Is it worth it?

    Why would you apply for a job that far away? There must be jobs closer to where you live. Travel costs will be ridiculously high; you'll effectively be working a good few hours for free to cover them.

    I searched for jobs in my area and it came up as a result and at that time I didn’t check the location but now that ive got it I checked and was very disappointed. I’ve applied for loads of jobs in my area but no one is getting back to me

    You need to do the maths!

    Can you actually get to and from the job, do you drive? will anyone drive you both ends of the day? is there a bus? is there a train? How much do you need the experience, rather than the money?

    Only you can say if it's worthwhile to you and what you need (money/experience), but whether ti can practically be done seem to be the first question.
