Can I get there on time?
How far is the commute to your new job? Do you have dependable transportation or are you utilizing public transportation? Is your work schedule or shift variable or fixed?
A long commute may seem reasonable during the honeymoon period of your new job or when you are considering accepting the job offer. However, do consider the long term challenging affects a long commute may have throughout your employment with your new company. Are you prepared to make a long or difficult commute every single day? Will inclement weather introduce any unforeseen challenges? If you are unable to utilize public transportation, which is often common for US based employment, consider additional items such as parking, tolls, and fuel expenses. Is carpooling or ride sharing an option?
Consider all of these and any additional potential issues before you accept a new job offer. Simply speaking, if you can not guarantee that you will have a way to get to and from work every single day, then you should consider not accepting the job offer until you have your transportation issues resolved. You do not want a new job opportunity to end because of transportation challenges.
