If you are looking at taking a job that involves a long commute to work there are some things that you need to consider. Communing to work can have an affect on your life in so many ways, firstly there is the cost of it. Unless the company is offering you a company car or fuel costs then you may find that even going for a job offering a higher salary actually means that you may be worse off. There is not only the fuel costs but also general wear and tear on the car such as tyres to budget in too.
The time you you are out of the house could increase substantially. If you are going to be travelling during rush hours or on the motorway you will have to allow additional time for traffic to ensure you get to the job on time. This can become very tiresome and should be taken in to account before you take on any role that will require this. Some people do not mind a long commute especially if they can go on the train or share journeys with someone else.
