    I was wondering if there were many ppl here on GR who are part-time workers and wondered how it is for you guys. I currently work about 24 hrs/wk and its a tight schedule. Problem? All my friends offer my social gigs that I gotta reject because of lack of time. I am also doing an internship and schoolwork, so I never have time to really do anything decent. All my friends are pissed because they tell me to take less hrs, but my boss wont give me less for more than a week LOL How about you guys?

    I have a part time job as well. 5 Days a week for about 3 hours each day right after my school lets out. It is a nice easy job and I can do some of my schoolwork while I work there. :)

    I curretly do not have a part time job, although I would like one. I'm at College doing a Web Development course, while all my friends have full time jobs. They're all starting to have alot more money that I do, and are able to do things i can't; upgrade their car etc...

    I work at Pizza Hut, 3 nights a week, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. I hate it. I have been working there for abot 6 months or so now, and my manager is a total dick. So, I'm going to quit there and go somewhere else in the near future. IDK where tho...

    Funny thing is I have the same scenario. My management is a pain in the ass to deal with in terms of needing days off (even if its like SAT testing or Model UN) and rely on me to do a lot of the stuff cause of my half-ass co-workers. I want to quite and go onto something I think will be more enjoyable - like a video game store or book store - but I doubt I could pull through in getting a position before quiting.

    Worked part-time in high school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, 3:00-9:00. Not all that bad, decent pay. Guess it's just where you work and what's available.
