    I have three job offer:

    a plumbing job which pays really good but is an unstable job because sometimes they may not need me. for example in one hour fixing a heater, i get around £20 and that is only 20 percent of the profit I get.

    A retailing job which is stable but pay is shet * £7 per hour and very likely that the managers are going to be rude and boss me around. I hate people that think they are know it all and boss me around.

    a mechanic job but very unstable but do not want to work there cause the guy wants me to rip off customers and I hate doing that.

    Just go with whatever job you prefer, managers might boss you around but if you work hard enough one day you will be in there position and earning a load of money. Its just starting off as a job like that..
    I do not want to work in there position though and I would be A WAY NICER BOSS, compared to them. I wouldnt treat people with disrespect. Yes ofcourse we all need discipline but its just isn't right. i just want a part time job while going in uni. I hate the retailing environment.

    What do you enjoy doing the most?

    I personally would go for stability over pay since you're more likely to be working as time progresses. Managers may boss you around but this is the real world now. Perhaps look at retail as a short term prospect then apply again after a few months
