I've had the same and I say never again.

No job or salary is worth investing three hours a day five days a week (that's 15 a week, almost two extra work days!).
Basically, you're working two extra days at no pay.
I started working four days when I did that then I slowly felt my happiness draining.
After a two week Christmas break I cried when I had to get back to work.
You get used to it, but when you're missing it you get reminded about how much it sucks.
I just started working at a new company and my first job was at a company halfway across the country.
They promised me exciting new challenges like a move to Azure and Azure DevOps (or whatever it was called back then).
Ultimately, I ended up doing the same thing I did at my previous employer, which was 15-20 minutes by bike or five by car.
After less than four months I told them I wanted to quit, but in the end I stayed for a good seven months to finish a project I started.
My next assignment was about as far from home, but the times were flexible and I could work from home on regular basis.
That one was doable until people started to complain I worked from home so much (including a guy who had the same commute).
I'm now working for myself and rented a place which is 15-20 minutes by bike again
I'll never get the people who say "a three hour commute is just part of the job and I don't mind it, I've still got my weekends."
You're doing yourself and your family short with that kind of attitude (unless you hate your family and/or yourself).
And if people stopped having that attitude we'd solve a big part of the traffic problem as well!
