I have been at Wal-mart in Electronics dept. for 6 months. I am paid $ 7.80/hr. I can only work 25 hrs. until I am 18. Then I can switch to however many hours I want. I work 5 days a week there. I am quite happy with it. I get 8.80/hr on Sunday, and double pay on holidays. I received a job offer from the local library. It pays $ 8.76 as a starting point. I can only work 18 hrs/week. I will only have to work 3 days a week. Wouldn’t work holidays so no extra pay. I fear the Wal-mart job is more interesting than library. But the library is a job for the local gov. Wal-mart also offers a 10% discount, and the guarantee that I can transfer to any Wal-mart in US if I move away.
I want to have a job for as long as I want. Both jobs will let me do that. I can not work both jobs, because I am an Ambassador for my college, and I will not have time for it anymore. I also will have a lot less time to study. I am not concerned with any health insurance or anything like that for either job.
I am 17, I have been in college for 1 yr. and will continue to do so. I will be transferring to a uni in spring 09. I want to be a doctor. I have a 4.00 GPA. I am taking Cal II, Org. Chem I, and College Physics I in the fall.
What should I do?

2 Thoughts on Which job should I choose? Please help, need answer by tomorrow.?

    Personally, I’d stick with Wal-mart. You’ll shop for for sure anyway..10% discount is good.You’ll be working there more.More money. And as for helping out the local government..Forget that. When your a’ll be helping people that need it

    Look at the Pros and Cons of each job.


    Don’t they offer tuition reimbursement?
    You get a 10 % discount
    Earn extra money on Sunday and Holidays
    If you move, you can transfer
    You make about $ 780/month gross depending on how many hrs you work on Sundays.

    Local Library:

    You’ll lose about $ 149.28/ month working here
    Since you’ll be working a fewer amount of hours, you’ll have more time to study.
    With all the information you gave me, this is the only thing I can think about!

    If I where in your shoes, I would go stay with Walmart, with only 25 hrs a week, that should give you plenty of time to study. Walmart is a good company to work for and you never know, when you turn 18, you might become eligible for a promotion. Keep working hard and it will pay off.

    Stick it out, jobs come and go, but right now jobs are getting scarce, and I think you are safe with Walmart.
