    I need a part time job for some extra dough. Can you suggest one that doesn't suck?

    I'm looking for one with the least amount of responsibility.

    I would but because English is my first language that may put me at a disadvantage it seems.

    And although in places like Sweden, to work in MacDonlad's seems to be quite a cool thing to do, in England for some reason it's looked down upon. I suppose I could move to Sweden. But then again I can't speak Swedish.

    I haven't worked there but places like the Co-op are good. My friend makes like £6.40 an hour and he is 16, that is really good to be honest.

    I work at WHSmith (only started a week ago) and it is okay, £4.80 an hour and customers don't seem to be really annoying or anything.

    unfortunately, if you are a teenager like me, it won't be that easy to find a job anyway.. I applied to maybe 30 places before WHSmith

    How will it put you at a disadvantage?
    A job is a job. Future employers would rather you have a job than none at all. Plus its decent money, flexible shifts.

    It's just a joke. Most of the people round where I live who work in MacDonald's are from overseas. They might think English people are not hard workers!

    I might give it a go. Maybe not MacDonald's but another fast food place.

    I'll agree with you on flexible shifts, not so much on the money part.
    I enjoy my job there, but if money is your main incentive and you're under 18, try to work in a supermarket. My friends who work in supermarkets get paid £2 more than me per hour, easily.

    I guess the money varies by store then- like wether its company owned or franchise etc. Im on a lot more an hour there than at my main job at as nursery (i work at mcds on sundays still). In fact, ive handed my notice in at the nursery and am going back to mcdonalds full time (and am hoping to train as a manager etc)

    Give it a few months... they're really stingy when it comes to budget so in winter won't put on heating and no air con in summer. Overtime is paid in arrears and then they won't sort out tax rebate stuff for ages. and getting shouted at by customers everyday for charging for plastic bags and by your manager if you don't reach tpc or bounceback quotas

    I wouldnt let the fact that a lot of foreign people work at your local mcdonalds put you off.
    And why would you try other fast food places but not mcdonalds. They are all similar. Mcdonalds really isnt that bad. I should know ive worked there for over 6.5 years. Go for it for gods sake.

    Worked in Morrissons supermarket before. I'd put that job under the "jobs that suck" category. It would be nice to have a job where you can chat to people or at listen to music while you work.

    That would be good because they'll never need to call in the reserves... unless...

    ISIS attacks
    Ebola attacks
    Russia attacks
    China attacks
    Syria attacks
    Iraq attacks
    Scotland attacks
    Ireland attacks
    Wales attacks
    Previously unknown deadly enemy attacks

    But apart from that. a pretty safe job I'd say.

    Plus I was looking for a job with the least amount of responsibility whereas this one seems to putting the responsibility of protecting the free world on my shoulders.

    Probably, it could also be that I'm under 18 and the pay will get better as I get older.

    Good luck with manager training!

    Oh wait you said least amount of responsibility. Never mind :rolleyes:

    Well...take the job plumbing toilets at the local chippy. That should do it. But that to me would suck. So...yeah.

    Night shift at a supermarket, the money is quite good and no customers to annoy you. Depending on your manager, they might let you listen to music while you work too.

    I would be a male escort if I could restrict my client base members of the Swedish beach volleyball team.

    However I think the job requires you to be less discerning.
