Hey, I figured some of you guys out there might be able to recommend me some decent jobs. Basically looking for something that pays around $10+ an hour, full-time if possible. Next year(a year from now, that is) I'll have an opportunity to get a really good job: full-time, pays really well and pays for school, but I need something in the meantime as well.

Thanks =)

Bartend - are ya goin to school full time?  Cause its kinda a bitch to work 8 hours a day, class for like 3 or 4 and readin about twice that.  If ya work fri sat and a weeknight you can clean up in tips - you wont make 10 an hour but the tips will put ya over that for workin a LOT less hours - your school life will thank you.  Especially if next year youll be workin full time for sure - might as well get some quality study time in while you can.

Yeah working 40 hours a week is a nightmare when not just going to school full time but also trying to achieve good grades. I just quit my (albeit well-paying) 40 hour a week job today and I'm training to be a bartender but I think working at a restaurant as a server is great too if you don't want to struggle with memorizing so many recipies.

Other than that though, I could ask the same question.

Check Medical Clinics for basic desk jobs.  I find that's often an un-tapped goldmine in terms of a job that requires little to no education, and pays fairly well starting off.

Got any skills and what are you going to school for?

I personally did several jobs during school. From driver for a radiator shop to welding (building race truck chassis) to doing vinyl graphics for go carts. Most of them paid good (for the situation) but all required either knowing someone, or having knowledge.

UPS pays relatively well and has flexible hours.

I worked at Pizza Hut making pizzas about 20 hours a week.  Easy job and the crew I worked with was great too.

Tending bar has very real occupational hazzards. Wrestle with those hazzards before you get into it.

Do you make $10 an hour at a pizza place these days? My first job was at a Pizza place, depending on management that can be a great experience.

Medical transcription pays if you have the vocabulary and connections and time to do it.

Upscale table waiting is great, but if you are only going to put a year in, I suspect options will be limited.

....Unionized moving labor...stocking grocery store shelves, UPS/FedEX hub work is great if you have the physical ability to do it.

Have you considered a lucrative career as a professional ditch digger?

Thanks for the tips guys =) I don't think bar-tending is an option, wouldn't I have to be twenty-one?

I realize full-time employment and school would be pretty killer. I'd actually settle for ~20 hours a week at $10+ an hour.

I'll be going to school to study Electrical Engineering and Mathematics, primarily. I don't really care to take Math farther than I need to, though. I have certain goals and just need to be able to understand everything up to that point slywink



Thanks again =)
