    try agencies for temp work or just keep an eye out for shops advertising for xmas staff

    i know it might be hard but be thankful you have a job this time of year and remember the grass is not always greener - you might be out of work for sometime before something else comes up - that is not to say your manager should be taking advantage

    any thoughts about the caring professions? you can join agency or hospital bank as auxilliary nurse etc at above minimum wage.

    you aint going to get much at 17 anywhere on minimum wage though
    perhaps set your sights higher?

    maybe yeer but dont have a clue what i want to do ,just anything which pays well

    :thumbsup:

    Where do you currently work and how long have you been there?

    I work for the best boss in the world . . . . . . me !

    Work for yourself, it's just a question of deciding what to do.

    A pal of mine (young and unemployable) now makes a healthy living by selling organically produced food items which he buys in bulk from local producers.

    He started with eggs and cheese, knocked a few doors and sold the produce and offered to call again next week.

    Before he knew it he'd got a bigger round than most milkmen.

    The clever bit was selling once, thereafter people buy from him

    Just a thought . . . . . . . .

    Cheers

    yeer would prefere to work in a bigger store,tesco,asda etc
    cheers:thumbsup:

    McDonald's would be a good place to start. I started there about a year ago part time, slightly above the minimum wage. Now I've worked there a year and been promoted twice - now as a manager I earn over £2.50 higher than the minimum wage. It's a pretty decent job, and you can have set shifts, or hand in an availability and they schedule you around that.

    If you've been there over a year you have rights, why do all the work and watch others do nothing?

    Have you followed the company grievance procedure in regard to your manager?

    dont think so as im 17,and how exactly is yeer shorter to type than yes:whistling:

    Try the catering and hospitality agencies, there should be a shed load of work at this time of year.

    I used to get £6 an hour waitering and £12 an hour doing silver service waitering and could easily double that with tips. That led on to some tasty bar jobs, and a few private jobs as Champagne Waiter, which was cool as I used to open the champers with a champagne sword, always pleased the ladies.
