    Too many to list..
    Buy the looks of it, Job #2 has a communication problem.. That's a huge red flag for me right there.. 20 min before you were to start working, no thanks. Hopefully they paid you for the day..

    BTY we are wheeling tomorrow if you are interested..

    My opinion?? If that company is that shotty and getting you into work, they don't seem very dependable and professional. I would go with the first one as long as the base pay isn't too low to manage.

    the only reason im still considering Job #2 is bc they are offering 13,000 more then job #1 but then again with my residuals ill have additional 5,000 above my base off the bat. This sucks but in a good way.
