    I was thinking of working 2 jobs in my gap year- one from 9-5 and one 6-11. I can already get the 6-11pm job as ive worked there before so i would just need to apply to say tecos or another general retail store. Any of you think it might be too much? In that year all I need to is apply for uni having received my A levels. I want the extra money for uni and have already saved 3.5k for it.

    Are you going to be able to organise leave from both at the same time? otherwise you'll never get a break? Will they both stick rigidly to those times, otherwise it won't work? Is this 5 days per week?

    One job only opens from 5 PM so should be fine all I need to do is ask for hours say 8-4 or something. I don't need a break lol I'll just go to sleep when I get home

    You should do the night one everyday and have the 9-5 every other day or vice versa so you don't burn out. It's important to have other hobbies and interests too in your gap year because honestly, you won't get time like this again in your life where you can still live with your parents, with no bills to pay and pursue something you like, so use it wisely!
