  • Summer Job thread

    Alright guys, summer's upon us (well me at least) and it's time to get a job. This is for all you geezers in here to show your age with past work experience and such. Right now I'm in the major hunt for a job and have found:
    Burger King (not specific)
    Dunkin Donuts (again, not specific in which job)
    A&P cashier
    KMart Stockroom/Unload associate
    Michaels Stocking
    Babies R Us "team member"
    Pizza Hut- driver or waiter or whatever.

    these are just some options I found today. So any advice or questions on places you've worked or wanna work, post 'em here!

    The only thing I can tell you is that out of all the jobs I've had, working in food was by far the worst. If I were you I'd stay away from stuff like that. Although delivery for Pizza Hut isn't bad I hear, you make a decent amount through tips, but if it's anything like a restaurant then your initial starting salary will be pretty low.

    I think working somewhere like Borders would be kinda cool.

      One of the better jobs I had during summers and what not was Shipping/Recieving at Sears (kinda like your KMart job) you are moving all day and lifting and carrying things, so it kinda keeps you in shape as opposed to sitting all day or standing all day. And MOST of the time Shipping and Recieving folks are cool.


      Silverback....still the best.

        Lucky you, I had been looking for a job since August, but living in a town of 10k people which has a school with another 10k students mean there are no where near enough jobs to go around.

        Waiting tables is a crappy job, but you can make quite a bit of money if you are good at it.
        I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

          Last summer at 21, I worked 4 overnight shifts a week at Holiday Gas Station...easy, read magazines, listen to music, get paid extra for working through the night, etc...

          Then 3 days a week I'd ump 4 slow pitch softball games. BEST JOB EVER. 17 bucks a game, no tax. If you can get hooked up as an umpire, men's bar league or Parks an Recreation

            Ive been looking for a job for months. SO HARD. I have yet to get any type of call back and when I call them to try and set up an interview, I basically get blown off. The closest I came to getting one was Grounds Crew for a golf club which would have been awesome. Free golf.

              Look at your town, as they usually hire people during the summer for parks and recreation and whatnot.

                I'm hoping to get a job at Crew Stadium or Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Either grounds crew or something of that nature. People don't know, but jobs at venues pays pretty decent money, at least in Columbus it does.

                  I'll be teaching Summer School for the nincompoops who failed 2 out of 3 trimesters of Social Studies.

                  I don't care for teaching during the summer in a non-air-conditioned building with kids who are too lazy to pass... but the money is too nice to pass up.

                    so far I've got nothing, but I'm looking for a job in a callcenter. Yeah it's horrible work, but it's a decent enough salary, flexible hours and easy.

                        When I was 16 - 17 I worked as a Dishwasher, it sucks so bad!

                        After that, I mowed lawn for my aunt and uncles campground, now that, was a great job, I miss it.

                        I worked at Hy-Vee in the kitchen, it sucked lol


                        And now I work at Best Buy, I have for about 9 months. And I love it.

                              Don't work food service jobs, unless it's waiting tables and you don't have to share tips. Best jobs I had in high school were a photo printing place and Petsmart. Honestly, though, stockroom jobs are awesome. When I worked the stockroom at Nike, we goofed around a lot and never dealt with customers. It was so easy.
