Long story short: I hate my job and need a new one.

I need a job to finance my musical instrument collecting fetish and my trip to portland this summer, and even though the money is good at where I work (a grocery store, Jewel-Osco, where I get paid $7.85 an hour and $8.85 on sundays) they take out almost half of my paycheck for union dues, which is complete BS seeing as I get no benefits from it. Also, they have been stiffing me on the hours.

I already applied at Panera Bread, which is like a bakery/lunch place across the street from me; I applied yesterday. Basically, there are alot of restaurants, most of them fast food around me, and a mall filled with Department Stores.

Staying at the grocery store is not an option.


tl;dr- I need a new job, hate current one whats a good place to work at?


PS I am applying at Guitar Center in September, when I turn 18.

Find a local Golf & Country Club or a Beach Country Club. Work as a porter setting up for events, or as a busser bussing tables. Should fetch some good money.

i love living in Ontario, $8.75 is our minimum wage. Don't work fast food. It sucks. Movie theater? Golf course? Chill music department store? Those would all be fun~ish.

Do something that's more of a vocation than a job, become a lifeguard. The pay is decent, there's demand for lifeguards, and you get to check out girls.

I actually work at Panera Bread. As far as entry level food service industry jobs, it's probably one of the best you'll find. Excellent management, good benefits, growing company, and we stay busy. The only way they're going to short you hours is if you're a bad worker.

Right now I make the paninis for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. They're not made to order, so I go in at 8 and make anywhere from 80 to 120 sandwiches for the day. So for me that's a guaranteed 17 hours a week and ofcourse they schedule me a few other days so I'm getting a consistent 25 hours a week. Not super but in the current economic climate it's something to be thankful for.
We're only strays.

I really don't understand what makes some of you think that you have the right to whine about your jobs. I've applied for more than 40 jobs since December, when I got laid off from my last job. I haven't been offered a single job yet. I haven't even been given an interview.

So, before you start bitching, remember that there are some people out there who would take your job in an instant.

Well, maybe it's time you took a hit to your dignity and applied for jobs that aren't exactly "worthy" of your skills. Everyone's weathering this recession, not just you.
