  • No it is a waste of time and money. Not worth the trouble. I would find a different job.

  • Well just for good will for your supervisor. If they know they can count on you then you will be asked to work more.

  • Nope..too much money in gas for only 3 hours. Wouldn't be worth it to me.

  • Probably not, unless it meant I may loss that job.

  • It depends on whether or not they would fire me if I didn't work that day. If yes, then I probably would go to work. However, if I could decline, with no adverse reaction from management, then no, it probably isn't worth the trip.

  • nope! waste of time!

  • No. My time is too valueable for that. Plus, that is not including the wear and tear on your car.
