    Nah. Never buy train. Just join 10* company that gives free train or join company/ city job that gives extra ws for the jp like edu, clothing, or lingerie

    If you're new, don't buy train, just join a 10* company and let them train you for free, easy peasy. 10* companies grow on tree and are willing to take in low stat employees apparently.

    "Just stop being poor" - some rich kid or something

    Inb4 "well, idk about others but I have my gang with me and they let me in when I'm low stat. I know I'm the outlier but still, everyone should listen to me"

    DedeSilver [2430598]

    No i didn't have anyone. I was factionless. But you know clothing company n some companies have really difficulties to get employees that they will take anyone right? N thats was the path I chose. Second i knew it gave 100 endurance for 10 jp plus mug protection i went with it. I just wrote all 10* directors n i got accepted.

    Yeh, and even with that, your job stats are only like 90k total. so the jobs you can select are just limited.
    I am half your age and have over double that

    Beeing able to freely pick more jobs is just a huge benefit, either for perks or for some people money.
    130k total.

    Yes but free. Love the word free :)

    There are two things being talked about here, and I think it's important we differentiate them. 

    For the op's scenari, the answer is mostly that it depends on how much he values being in a 10* oil rig. If he wants to join it and can't because of shitty work stat, he'll either have to wait in a company getting rotation, which would be slow, or Fastrack it via train buys.

    In general, for n average player, I'd agree with dede. If youre not very active and won't be able to make full use of the stats to jump to god perk comps, trains would just diminish your current networth.

    For active people who want to get ahead, trains would be worth it due to the plethora of companies they'd open doors to later. Rotational in general would be ~8 trains per month. If you're buying trains, you could get 120-280+ per month. Massive difference in stat gain. And while it is a marathon, getting things set up early on helps optimise your gameplay later. Its like having enough money to continually train with fhc's/stat enhancers later. You can plug along fine with xan and refills, but if you have hustled to save money it would be much easier later on.

    I could get into a 10* an and now am able to sell happy because I paid for the trains enough to get me in decentish stats. Had to put in ee merits because the stats are still bad, but if I can get trained enough, I can take out those merits at new year reset and put them in a branch that would actually help me.

    Once one is post happy jumps, it'd be better for them if they are in a music store/fitness centre. To be eligible for 10* fitness centre, you'd need to have high stats. If the high stats are delayed, they'd have to wait more to get into that comp, and miss out on +3% gains

    The value of it would vary, of course. An inactive player wouldn't think of it as much, or maybe even a player whose goals are already met with their current comp, so they can just increase train stats in rotational

    The worth of anything is hard to pin down. Just depends on your goals and priorities. In general, I think quick workstat increase to atleast edu Fastrack point is important, since you get the 19% reduction passive and it also makes you eligible for more high star lower req comps.

    Did you seriously spend 3000+ job points on work stats then???  buying them would have been more cost efficient then

    You got 500 trains total = 37.500 stats
    and are 663 days old so that is 50-70k job stats +- (depending on the job type)

    no i believe you, but that means you spend an awfull lot of job points on work stat bonussus

    10 job points = 100 stats (thats equal to 1,33 trains)
    10 job points are like 1million on the market +-
    While 1,33 train is like 400-500k

    Well the mug protection perk came in handy when i needed to build my nw by flipping items. If you see how much people could mug me since day 1 vs My total bazaar income you'd be surprise how low it was.
    Another good example of not buying trains by working in non favorite company will be my buddy fizzloges (i just forgot which account he had considering he restarted 3x). He worked in meat shop company while it hadn't got any boost by ched. 8 out of 10 employees were inactive. So the director just trained both active one 5x a day. Something like that. Meanwhile he then started working on his hunting merits.
    What I was trying to say was, if no money don't buy train. Just work with what you have and adjust the game play.

    Self-serving company owners will tell you to buy trains, but don't listen to them - they're after your money.

    There are lots of good company owners out there - just keep looking and

    NEVER BUY TRAINS

    only 100mil in trains can get u to a sweet spot in a AN or most companies where a noob may benefit from. And no once did the OP mention buying trains to join an oil rig for the 10* perk(i maybe blind its almost 1am god dammit).

    Take it from a noob who has below 3B nw, All the money I ever spent in trains was worth every penny and has already made up for the money spent. If buying trains gets u to a company u need to be for your growth, its much better than waiting for weeks or a few months. Time is much important than u think. But however I do get your point, for the average semi actives, they might as well never buy trains and still be good to go
    He didn't say 10* Oil Rig, but I'm having a hard time imagining wanting to buy trains for one of the other Oil Rig perks (he did say "to join an Oil Rig", after all):

    Yes - if you enjoy the idea of being indecisive about your job specials, and want to hop between the various different companies. (Especially if you want to try out new releases, which will likely be swamped by higher stat players) 

    No- if you really like the idea of Directing, or ultimately aren’t all that interested in Job Specials (being in a Hair Salon for your first game year, then hopping into a Fitness Centre is a perfectly meta, and viable option - and won’t need you to buy trains)
