Would you apply for a job at your current employers competition?

Ive worked for the same company for over a year...recieved a raise..bottom line i LOVE LOVE LOVE my company but bottom line theres no where to really move up...and for the position I do right now our companies biggest competition starts people out making 5 more dollars an hour. I would hate to seem like IDK an ass for lack of a bettter word for going to the competition but my families gotta eat so I figure its worth a shot?! What would you do?!

  • If you need the money, then by all means apply. If you get the job and your current employer asks you why you're leaving, tell them it was because you want a position with room for advancement.

  • Make sure you didn't sign anything that says you can't do that. Some companies don't allow it.

  • If current employer would not find out then I would. A bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush.
