That’s good!

Will take a time through to see how the company uses that plan. Some companies really reward with it and others don’t. My DH’s company bonus program is very much used to reward employees on an annual basis. They stack rank then put employees in a band/percent range on a curve. So it’s very competitive to get a high ranking so the bonus range is higher…

Yes, I plan to take it anyway

Like you said, it’s better than $0. The travel is just for training – I don’t see having to travel much other than that. It’s a salaried position, so I wouldn’t qualify for overtime pay. I’ll also be eligible for “an annual discretionary bonus based on performance and Company profits.”

They are a staffing/consulting company, correct?

What happens when your assignment ends? Are you an employee of Kforce or the actual company that won whatever contract they are trying to staff to? That should also be a consideration, IMO because I would imagine you don’t want to join a company only to be off contract in six months to a year. That may also be why the job offer is less than you were expecting — they were probably the lowest bidder (or your labor category is lower due to lack of four year degree — I’m in defense contracting and I see this all the time).

I agree though that this is a chance to get back in the workforce, continue to gain experience, get health coverage and benefits while continuing to look. It’s always easier to look while employed than not and who knows, you may meet someone who knows someone who has a need for your skillset…

Then again, the six week assignment you just took might also pay off… at least you now have options!

Good luck however you decide.
