    Hello all, Last year I started working for a restaurant, 25 - 30 hours during the school year. Huge mistake. I didn't realize how hard working and studying would be. Only a freshman, I was working nights and weekends, constantly staying up late and going to school the following morning. I struggled to balance working, family, and school. My body even developed a physical reaction (seborrheic dermatitis) due to stress. You get the picture. I am starting my second year of college next week. I told my boss I needed her to cooperate with the fact that school is my priority, but she said she still needs me on all these shifts. My dad told me I need to give my two weeks notice if they won't work with my needs because the business is their problem, not mine. My mom said I shouldn't quit until I find a new job. The reason I need some kind of income while in school is because I pay for my own tuition, books, car insurance, gas, and self-care expenses (dentist appointments, visit co-pays, etc.) So yes, I need at least a part-time job. But I can't be somewhere that doesn't respect the fact that I am a student. I am really torn. I know I could find another job, but I just don't want to burn bridges. Campus jobs are great because they are usually no more than 15 hours a week and they allow a great balance, usually no nights and weekends. But if I quit, I will always need to find work during breaks. Help! What would you do?

At the same time, they have not given me an answer yet regarding full time employment, and the temp agency is the one who is paying me. Please tell me your honest opinion, does it make me look bad? What should I do?

  • Should I quit my job without another? I have to work Saturdays now and I can't get off for interviews? I been looking and unhappy for year?

    I don't have anything to move onto. I do have one potential lead for an outside company. I can also ask for an internal transfer I doubt either will pan out. Why should I keep being unhappy? I hated my job since I started and things never improve. Should I be unhappy for another year? Another 5 years? 10?

    I get that there is an absolute need for college for people like medical field staff, scientists and that sort of thing. Some of my coworkers, for instance, havea 2-year or 4-year degree and graduated. However, they are working where I am. A lot of them are horrible with the computer and I'm showing them stuff that I have self-taught myself over the years. It honestly makes me wonder how they even graduated. Every job that I have been at, they trained me for the job, for the most part. I had "some" experience from previous jobs in the same job field, but they still had to train me on the policies and procedures. For reasons like this, I don't really see the point of college for those who aren't trying to be a doctor, teacher, etc. You gain a lot of extra skills while being employed. So why do employers want a 2-year or 4-year degree for something if someone doesn't have real-world work experience? I trained a guy months ago who talked about nothing but a 4-year degree that he had and the guy was dumber than a brick. While I was training him, he would always say, "I've got it, I've got it" and he ended up getting fired because he didn't have it. Do companies just want to see that you "tried" to extend your education or something?

    I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome at age 16. It doesn't mean I'm stupid. It means I have poor communication skills and listening skills. I don't understand people. I can only handle dinky jobs like Starbucks or McDonald's. At best, I can become a waiter. The problem is this does not pay enough to live on. Working full-time, I get $1,700/month. Let's say I get $600 in disability every month; that equals $2,300/month. Is that enough to live on for the rest of my life? Is that a good idea? (I'm from Los Angeles, CA)

    if you're ever in doubt, you can always err on the side of more formal, but i really don't think that'll be necessary
