    being a waiter/waitress is the best job, it usually pays well and you get loads of tips too.
    Also its quite fun as long as you work in a nice.posh one.

    I used to get paid £5.77 working in Boots as a qualified Medical Counter Assistant (woo :rolleyes: )

    My bf got £80 in tips from ONE party once so came home with about £200 in tips that day. It's a pig of a job though.

    It's bloody hard work, but you can make LOTS of money in tips. I got about £800 in tips just over christmas.

    No, if I was going to go down that route, I'd be a stripper (and probably earn a lot more money!)

    It depends what job I am doing, if its a web development contract from this company I work for part time I get paid anything from £8-£12 an hour depending on if its weekend or during the week. I prefer weekends because not only do I get paid more but also I get to work at home.

    Doing leaflets I get typicaly around £4 an hour but I hardly do any these days. Thatrs more of a summer job. Hopefully in a couple of years time I will be £20 ph.

    £4 an hour for standing about in a shop and occasionally selling things to customers. Also known as a Co-op food store.

    It's incredibly boring and badly paid...generally quite sucky.

    I get £5.09, those retarded employees won't even round it up to £5.10

    I only get 1 and a half on bank holiday, where my sister get twice her hourly rate.....instead of my bank holiday being £5.09 + £2.55 = £7.64, they give me £5.09 + £2.54 = £7.63.......THAT 1p makes all the differences man

    Being a waiter sucks, i would not even work as a waiter for £10, all you do is stand and ask customers what they want????...my 10 year old brother can do that!!!!!They just stand around pretending they are supermodels, and stand around for like 10 hours a day. You get loads of retarded customer as well, and keep are getting asked to do this, do that.....

    Also, you got to clean up the mess from customer meeting, pick up left over food, clean all the leftover food on the table and floor.....

    The only thing going, for being a waiter, is that the pay is good and you get tips......

    Its bascially, just better then working at Fast food restuarants

    PERIOD

    I dont get paid by the hour I get paid by each time i do something. But I baby sit for some stupidly rich folk and I get £40 if they are back before midnight and £70 if its after midnight. I usually start about 7.30pm and they are usually back before midnight. So its pretty good pay-plus they have a well stocked fridhe,score!

    I think I get 4.46 or something ridiculous like that, working in Budgens. Could be worse I suppose, I got double pay on the Christmas bank holidays. And it's not as if I actually do a hell of a lot (unless you count sitting in the office with my fit manager!)
