      If you aren't trolling, why? What do you do and why are you okay with walking?

      Yeah I've had long commutes like that before. I'm more worried about wear and tear and gas expenses.

        Buy a 2010s car. They're easier to preform maintenance on

          1990s cars are WAY easier to perform maintenance on, are more reliable without all the computer shit and plastic, but still have airbags and ABS brakes.

            Cars are full of cheap garbage plastic since the 80s.

            I agree but 90s cars aren't fuel efficient. Newer cars are obviously best for that but are a pain to fix

            Gasoline itself is about 30% fuel efficient. There is no such thing as a fuel efficient car

    it's not unheard of but obviously depends on how valuable the job is. if it pays significantly more than anything else you can get closer to home, then I guess it's worth it. if you have family, that's 10hrs/week you'll be away from them. 520 hours / year--21 full days of just driving. I'd try to make the most of the time so it's not a complete waste, like maybe listen to audiobooks or something

    what do you drive? how old / how many miles on it?

    I'd love that. Time to zone out, listen to music and stare out the window.

    Depends on the job.
    Mon-fri 9/5? You must really want that job.
    I work at the firehouse, so like you can do 24 hours at once and then have several consecutive days off, so even a 2 hour commute is palatable to some of the guys.

    It's only worth it if you're making a really good salary or you have a gf/family. I recently got an office job and I'm having a hard time dealing with it because I lack good reasons to get out of bed in the mornings. If I had to add two hours of commute time to that, I guarantee I wouldn't do it unless I'm making like 150k.
    I understand that the job market is hard right now but once you take this job the reality will set in and you'll be trapped. It looks pretty bad to future
    employers if you back out of a job soon after taking it.

      You doubleposted.

      But thank you. Yeah, it's more or less, I'm trying to get a more beneficial job for me in the industry I was in for my last job. Right now I don't even work in the industry and it's annoying since I have long-term goals.

      I need to get back in, and I just wanted a slightly higher-than-entry level position, which this is, to get back in at.

    i do a 2h30 daily commute
    what matters is the mode, not the time - 30mins standing is worse than 1h sitting in a quiet bus

    I wouldn't be. The delays on a long commute scale terribly. If you have a traffic jam on a 20 minute commute and are 10 minutes late, but if you have a longer commute there is potential for more than one delay since you are traversing so much distance, and you could easily be a half hour late which then builds up over time and makes you look bad

    I do a 40 minutes commute on the way to work and I hate it. The way back in only 20mins. If it was 1 hour both ways I would just kms.

    Curious about this, I take like 45 minutes commute and doesn't feel that bad but I really wished that it was shorter

    1 hr to go and 1 hr to come back, or 1 hour total? Anyway, I don't mind that. If it's public transport, you can have a nice nap in that time. If it's your car, you can listen to music and relax, but I enjoy driving so it might just be my perspective.
