Many of my friends also worked part-time (or as a student) in the restaurant/bar business. It is quite common for students to do this kind of jobs (in fact, a big percentage of this bussiness runs on student-jobs etc). Another common job is to work at local supermarkets and stuff. Or at big factories (although these are often not so pleasant jobs)...


Personally I work fulltime in a theater, being a theater technician, I'm my own boss (well I have a boss above me, but I basicly can do whatever I want when I want, as long a the job gets done), the hours are extremely inregular and you have to do a lot of overtime. But the job is also very extremely versatile.

RE: Where do you work?
i did a paper round and have worked in 2 restaurants (1st for 3 years - i was 11 when i started :D) and i DJ - but thats not easy work and expensive to start.
i might quit my job now at the 2nd restaurant because i hate the manager's and the pay is crap
but i might be starting up my own business if i can get the money of my dad (A) (on loan :()

RE: Where do you work?
If you can be bothered to do a paper round, then it's worth the money. If you can be bothered to do the morning paper round every day, then you'll have alot of money for a little job.

I do a weekly paper round, which I get 10 for. It's easy, and the money adds up once you've been doing it for a while :P

But, I would prefer to have a job in say, a restraunt, computer store, etc.

I don't really like my job, and I can't really be bothered to do it most weeks, but I just do it for the money :P So if you can find a better job with good pay, good on ya :P

RE: Where do you work?
yer i did a round for 2 years. and did it in an hour or 40 mins ish
even at the age of 11 i was on 3.25 per hour and now im on 3  :( but it isnt great pay - but when you think a 6 hour shift is 18 it seems ok - but realistically its crap pay. 3 an hour isnt that good either - but fo 1.70ish per hour (or slightly less) at 6 AM (5 some times i did it) in thunderstorms....nah thanks id rather not do it again
