Random question but I figure that this may be a good way to get some tips/ideas/assistance given the breadth of people on here.
I’m an apprentice electrician. Up until a couple of months ago my working week would consist of the following:
Mon to Friday - Full Time employment through my electrical apprenticeship
Thursday and Friday evenings - work 5 - 930 at my casual job
Saturdays work all day at my casual job.
Apprentice wages suck a fat one (first year was $7.5/hr) which is why I have the casual job on the side. As I’m a ‘mature aged’ apprentice my financial responsibilities force me to have the second job. However, my shifts have totally dried up at my casual job. We have a new manager and I have a feeling my lack of availabilites isn’t working for her and as a result she is weeding me out.
So, my questions is. Does anyone have any suggestions of other employment that I may be able to persue to supplement my apprentice wages. Keeping in mind my availabilites are only after hours and a Saturday or Sunday but not both as I’d go insane.
I’m currently in retail and wouldn’t mind something different.
So far I have:
Bar work, wait staff, or paper route. None of which are super appealing but beggars can’t be choosers.
Any constructive advice would be great!
