Would you commute an hour to a job you wanted?

    Currently doing 12 hour overnights in a job I'm not very fond of, mostly clock watching. But this job is 15 minutes away. I have been offered a position I'd really enjoy, on the day shift, but requires a one hour commute each way. Live in an area where the winters can be dreadful. Any thoughts?

    I currently commute an hour to my job. I really like my job most days. I work nights, and the drive in isn't do bad. The drive home is a killer though! I also work the night shift.

    I commute an hour each way and live in an area with snowy winters. It isn't so bad, worth it if it's a job you'd like! I work nights so my drive home can be rough but it's definitely doable.

    There is only one small hospital close to me that is never hiring- the closest ones are 1.5 hours away. Most commute at least that long in my area.

    I have commute an hour+ for work. There is just no work available in my town & the work that is I have to drive over an hour to.

    I hate to drive so that would be a "no" for me. I have a 20 minute drive to get to work. That's long enough for me.

    I would. I have had jobs as close as 10 minutes and as far as an hour. I think an hour would be the absolute MAX. I currently commute 40 minutes (still a student, but work in a group home) and that's not too bad.
