Should I switch jobs?
My wife currently works as a teller at a bank, she may be offered a personal financial rep job and just found out a major insurance company wants to interview her.

Go with the insurance - personal financial rep job since there's far more financial perks and growth, especially when it comes to sharing renewal commissions. Good luck!
