I’ve been offered an interview for a cleaning job at a school near me. I think it’s a great opportunity, it’s 3-5pm, weekdays and the pay is £8/hour.
But my parents think it’s a bad job and I should do something like tutoring or receptionist etc.
And I’d love to, but the hours for those jobs are crazy, they work on weekends and have late nights. And I want it to be more free.
Should I listen to my parents and find another one?
It’d be my first job.
As I said in another thread, the crap jobs make you grow as a person. You're unlikely to move out at your age presumably, so you can go for a job that doesn't pay well while still gaining work experience
Money is money my friend. At the end of te day your not selling yourself or scamming anyone so who cares? Its an honest job.
It depends partly on what you qualify for? You shouldn't settle for something too low below your professional capabilities. Take a long-term perspective as well. The hours for this other job might be crazy now, but consider its future prospects versus those of a cleaning job
Any job is good for a first job.
I would recommend you read up on the relevant health and safety legislation to stand a chance of getting the job, the most impost being COSHH (Control of Substances Hazourdous to Health) when dealing with cleaning materials.
Sounds ideal tbh. A lot of people think they're too good for cleaning jobs but money is money at the end of the day and at least you actually have a work ethic. The hours suit you and it's better than minimum wage so I see no problem with it.
I assume you're studying? If you are then these hours are great as it's regular but wouldn't interfere with your work. If you're not studying and this is you working for a living then I would possibly suggest that more hours would be preferable, but as a way to get into the world of work it's not bad at all tbh.
It sounds like it might be perfect for your current circumstances. Would the 3pm starts clash with any of your lessons? Don't forget travel time, time to get changed etc.
