Okay, I work at the movies. Here's what my day is like:

$5.85 an hour (minimum wage is less, so work out that ratio to where you live).

Today, I stood in the same spot for 6 hours (never sat down) taking tickets (I literally didn't move out of a 5 feet radius), took a 15 minute break and did another hour.

Being an usher, sometimes I clean theatres....filthy theatres.

I also work in concession sometimes, which means you sit down as much as the ticket-taker (never), and you deal with food.

These are my two options:

1) Look for a new job.
2) Keep this job and get used to it.

I'm not to good at finding jobs, especially where I live.

I'd keep the job and look for a better job. Ask some of the employees or friends who work there. Although your job sounds boring, it also sounds like easy money. Although the pay isn't grand it's better than quitting.

Find a better-paying job. When I lifeguarded over the summer, I made $8.27 an hour.

Minimum wage for standing round doing nothing sounds pretty good to me. Just live with your job for now. 2 reasons. The first is that you may not get any better paying work and it may require more work for that extra 50c u might get. 2nd reason is that you probably get staff discount which makes dates to the movies affordable.

EDIT: When you need a better paying job then i suggest looking, but while its easy and you have no use for more money then stick with it.

Look for a new job but don't quit till you find one.

Condemned by what you condemned before

Underground is your joy your laws

Minimum wage is $5.85 or am I misunderstanding what you're saying? Anyway I say keep the job, you aren't going to find an easy job where you get to sit, but you can still look for another if you feel like.

Looks for a job at a dry cleaners. My friend says it's the easiest job in the world.

Become a soccer referee.

You set your own hours.
Work outdoors.
Get paid in cash or personal check.
Get a lot of breaks.
Free food from parents.

I can make anywhere from 14 to 35 bucks a game.
Last fall I worked 3 hours a week and made 105 bucks a week.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Be a pizza delivery guy.

Lots of tip money, lots of free food, and it's fun as hell.



Yeah unless you are like my friend, who decided that running into a car was less important then letting the pizza slip on the car floor. Then you get sent to the dishwasher!

I hear the movie theatres suck for work. Somebody I know from school said he had to clean up somebody's urine in a cup.

Just keep the job while looking for another one.

Try teaching some kids guitar, it's more fun and you get more money.

I bus tables/fill water/random jobs for 6~+ hours with no breaks for NC minimum wage (6.15ish) and I get jipped on tips (Around 15 dollars tips). =[

My ankles seriously don't work by the end of the night.
And the waitresses act like I'm some slave to do their jobs too.
And the owner gets in the way and is incompetent.

I want a new job.

Keep the job until you find a new one.
Even Mickey D's pays better,
but I get the feeling you don't like food.


Maybe make friends with one of the projectionists on your time off?
He could teach you how to do that.
Easy money, baby. No standing.
