We did a floorset at Bath & Body Works last night and as Marie has decided that she likes me and that I shall be her favored visual kid, I was amongst the last to leave. I don't mind that; I like the job.

This morning, I'm supposed to start training at a coffee shop job. Man, I'm tired. This isn't a job I want, either. I only applied to my mother off my back - she kept complaining that I wasn't working enough. I didn't expect to get it!
Frankly, I think it's a bit sucky. It's only minimum wage for barista work. If I really wanted to be a barista, I'd go to Starbucks, where they pay for your training (this lady doesn't) AND pay $9 an hour, starting wage! If the owner of the business didn't live only a few houses down the road and wasn't the mother of someone I used to play with as a kid, I'd quit now.
Well, at least I only have to be there a few hours today before skipping off to Bath & Body Works at two to begin our SKU maximization project. Whee!

But what do you think? Should I quit this coffee job?

Another BBW employee!

Well, I only work there on breaks from school. They stick me up in front greeting customers because I'm the only salesgirl they have who can maintain a smile for 6 hours straight.

I tell my fellow employees that I like our customers and I'm stared at mutely ^_^; Then again, I don't work there every day, so *shrug* and unlike you, k00k, I've had the luck of avoiding doing floorset <.<;;

Don't know enough about general circumstances to advise about the coffee job though =( sorry...

And remember to PM me on BPAL one of these days! *poke*

absolutly, especially if you think you can get a better paying job doing the same thing or something easier. I see no point in working a low paying job and you certainly have the abilties and personality to earn alot more so go for it!

I'd say test it out, but if they take the same sort of action (that being never giving you raises, not paying you after store hours even though you still work, etc.) then get out of there as soon as you can. There's no reason ever to stay with a job that breaks the law and mistreats its workers.
