Re: Which job to pick?

Good point. I don't think it is really a big deal if I just tell them I decided to stay with my current employer.

Justin, have you ever considered running for public office. You apparently have all the qualifications.

I've given it serious thought. Seems like a lot of work though. 8)

Re: Which job to pick?

After he has started at job #2 there is no harm in calling back the person who offered job #1 and share with them the real reason(s).

Availability 24/7 availability would be top on my list. That is something #1 can change, it reflects their staffing plans. That factor may also be the reason why others have passed on the opportunity.

Good point, although I wouldn't expect job #1 to care all that much. There will always be someone desperate enough to take a job, no matter what the working conditions are.

True enough.* Desperate hires look for other opportunities once they have options.* They may stay a year or two just to make sure the resume doesn't convey employment instability, but they are very poachable.* Odds are HR has told them this, they may be waiting for an applicant management really wanted to support their position.*
