I've been needing out of my current job for a while now - I am burned out from the animal shelter I work at now as an animal care attendant. I applied for a position at a very small animal clinic with 1 doctor and 1 other staff member as a vet assistant. I had an interview, it went great, but then I didn't hear from them for about 2 -3 weeks. In that time I applied for a reception position at a larger animal hospital. Finally the first position called me back for a working interview and they hired me right away.
Now, the larger hospital called me in for an interview pretty much the day I started at the new place. I still went to it. I've had a simple interview, an interview with the doctors, and a working interview. All went great! The pay is a littler better here, and the position is quite a bit less stressful.
I honestly love both jobs. But the stability, hours, and pay are better at the second place. Also the possibility of an animal care position in the future as well as possible benefits...... they are getting back to me Monday if I got the position.
I feel like I may take it if I'm offered it... but I am feeling extremely guilty about leaving the new job as they've already put 16 hours in to training me, there is only one other staff member there besides the vet. If I leave, I am going to completely screw them over.
Everyone so far keeps telling me it's not my problem and I need to do what's best for me and don't let guilt make the decision for me.. but I feel like I need some unbiased opinions!
