I wouldn’t have taken the job, if the perks hadn’t been so great.

OR

I wouldn’t had taken the job, if the perks hadn’t been so great.

Have or had here ?

In this sentence, your subject is “I”. The correct conjugation of the verb to have is based on this subject. It is correct to say “I have”. In addition, using the word “would” should not be combined with past tense. You should never say “I would had…” or “He would had…” The correct verb phrase is always “I would have…” or “He would say…” or “We would want…”.

So, the correct sentence is:

  • I wouldn’t have taken the job, if the perks hadn’t been so great.

 

I answer to my question. The answer is more likely :

I wouldn’t have taken the job, if the perks hadn’t been so great.

 

Another similar example I found in my notes:

If Napoleon had not invaded Russia, he would have conquered the rest of Europe.
