Uh Oh, Might Have ANOTHER Job!

So I applied for a lot of jobs for this summer and now I'm getting them. Eeek! I thought it would be a lot more difficult to actually get a summer job so I applied to several.

On Friday I had an interview with Community Living for a respite position. The woman called me on Thursday to ask me to come in for an interview and mentioned that she already had someone in mind for me to work with.

The interview went really well. The social worker told me a little about the two boys she would like me to work with this summer. It would be with a 6 year old boy on Mondays and Fridays all day in a day camp setting for $100 a day. Then I could also work with a 10 year old boy Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for at least 3 hours each day for $12.43 an hour. However both are ONLY for 6 weeks (until mid-August).

It sounds more teaching related than waitressing and the aerial park. However now I think if I do get this one for sure that I will have too much on my plate this summer. I don't want to run myself into the ground working this summer. Not really sure what to do though.

I don't really want to keep the aerial job because they have poor management and organization. However I do really like the job and people there, and I would feel bad quitting after only being there for a month. I WANT to keep the waitressing job I haven't even started yet just because I think it will be something different for me and I think it could help me get a waitressing position in my own town for the school year (since this restaurant is only open for the summer season). I WANT to do the community living job since it sounds interesting and would actually ADD to my teaching resume. Hmmm decisions!

For now though I am going to keep working at the aerial park. I worked Saturday and Sunday, and have shifts for next weekend as well. I don't want to do anything until I know I have the community living job for sure, and I won't know until June 24th at the latest. But I will have to decide what to do soon enough.


  1. Nice that you have choices. I'm sure that you will make the best decision that is right for you. You will definately have a busy Summer.

  2. That happens a lot, when you get one job, others keep popping up.

    Sorry I can't offer any advice on what you should do but I think you will figure it out on your own. It's good to have options

  3. Don't feel bad about quitting when you get there. From what you're blogging, I wouldn't be surprised if there are a lot of turnovers. Clearly, the management is not there for you. You need to remember, if they did not bother to invest in their workers, they should not expect the workers to invest in their jobs. There's no need to play nice as you are not screwing them over - they'll easily find another person to replace you.

  4. Girl, you are hustling your heart out. My kind of chick. I agree, don't feel bad. Sometimes jobs we like or want aren't the best fit for us, so sometimes it's best to go onto another one. But wow, I wouldn't be surprised if you get more jobs girlie. Go you!
