BreakfastCake posted a topic in Q & A CornerHey everyone, I could really use some advice making a big life decision! I have been talking to a shop in town and they recently offered me an apprenticeship (woo!) but I'm getting really nervous about committing to their contract. The apprenticeship contract states that after around a year of being an apprentice, I would be required to work there for FIVE years. Five years is a long time for anyone, especially a youngster like me. And this small town isn't the place I want to live in for most of my 20s. Seems like 2 or 3 years would be more reasonable, although I understand that they want to get a lot of work out of me after they teach me so much valuable information. Is five years normal? Is it unheard of for me to try to negotiate with them? Should I maybe just try for another shop in the town that I actually want to live in for the next six years? Thank you so much!
