    Does anyone else hate the part-time job that they have while at college? I only have one day off every 2 weeks and my work is suffering, so I'm really thinking about either reducing my hours or quitting. Plus most people there treat me like **** and boss me about because I'm younger than them. It really is a stupid job.

    I'm sure a lot of people dislike their job's - but what are you there for? Money.

    The general advice is - you ought to try and work in retail - such as large shops and supermarkets - forget all this washing pots and collecting glasses, or mixing cement - students should work in very structured, large-based firms/companies where their is a lot of government intervention - that way you have many legislative rights and your "bosses" can be reported for misuse.
