    i think ive only posted once or twice on this thread but wanted to ask some advice lol!
    i got my job in sainsburys back in august but had also applied for another job for electronics company best buy at around the same time.
    well i ended up getting both jobs!
    it means now im working
    monday 9am-pmbest buy

    tuesday 6pm-9pm best buy

    wednesday 1pm-9pm sainsburys

    thursday 9am-6pm best buy

    friday 9am-6pm best buy

    saturday 9am-2.45pm best buy
    saturday 6pm-10pm sainsburys


    on top of those hours i also have my daughter who is nearly 2 to look after
    so i was wondering if any of you were in the same position as me then what would you do? would you carry on working all of those hours or hand in notice at one and only work at 1?

    on my 9-6 i normanly have to be out of the hours by 7.40am, 6-9 i have to leave around 4.30, i am the not getting home til late so in a way i feel bad for my daughter as shes not getting to see alot of mummy or daddy (her dad is a bus driver so has odd hours aswell)
    I'm not very good at giving advise so you'd probably want to do the opposite of what I am about to say.

    If your financial situation means you HAVE to work - then your going to have to "sacrifice" (Can't think of a better word sorry ) a few hours with your daughter. I presume you'll be setting a good example to your child by working in the obvious ways (I presume because I don't have kids).

    If you don't need to work for those hours, you should leave one of the jobs - but choose the organisation that will allow you to easily increase your hours should you require to on a temp or perm basis.

    i am doing it for the financial side, but im 12 hours a week at sainsburys and 32 at best buy (more during training though) but could easily increase when we open to public by offering to do overtime on other departments

    is it not financially better to only work one, but full time? So you'll get more time than current with your daughter. Also, don't you pay a basic 20% tax on a 2nd job? so you might not be massively worse off if you went full time, at either job.

    yeh 20% off 2nd job which they are classing sainsburys as its less hours (spoke to tax credits about it).
    i might wait and see if i pass best buy probation period then think about handing in my notice to sainsburys

    It's nice when you find out you have holiday that you didn't know about. I'm still doing extra hours this week though, I need the money, not a break. Shame I won't get paid for it for another five weeks

    That's the default, yes, but you may be able to arrange it so that this isn't the case. Take a look at this section of my wiki article on Income Tax and National Insurance: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...aving_two_jobs

    You wouldn't dare. A life-time worldwide ban from all - yes you heard me right ALL! - Sainsbury's stores, 50% deduction on your nectar, off my christmas card list and more that would scare even the most hardended employee!

    Laughing now? Didn't think so.

    I don't think I'm going to lose some sleep over the fact I'll be banned from ALL Sainsbury's stores? In fact, I'll probably have sweet dreams. :p:

    However, 50% deduction on my Nectar. I think I'm going to slit my wrists now.. :mad:

    No Christmas card? OK. Now I'm not laughing..

    lol, maybe I should it's just a bit bruised but I think it'll be fine ... er, basically pulling the rollcages off the delivery truck and there's a metal thing near the doors, the rollcage had dodgy wheels and pushed me sideways where my arm then got stuck between the metal thing and the rollcage, bending my wrist backwards and smacking my elbow against the metal thing!! I was practically in tears! I'm so clumsy. But the rollcages are a bit too heavy for me to pull or push when they're completely full, so if the wheels are dodgy I can't push them the opposite way without some help!
