You have to be 17 to work at starbucks because of "Hot milk". Therefore, i am still unemployed.
you want to work at starbucks, but ikea is a big nasty corporate no-no!!
"don't want no job in Starbucks!"
he just prefers the idea of being a 'barista' to assembling furniture
Instead of employee of the month they have "Sandwich artist of the month"
What the fuck? The mongs in my local Subway can barely manage to hand you a cup for the coffee machine, let alone create "art"!
Im desperate. I have to pay my dad back £150.
However, if i did get a job, it would be an ironic job, therefore, it is ok. I'd be the cheeky, rebellious teenager who arranges the muffins into penis shapes and gives people change "sarcastically".
Once i turn 17, come into my starbucks and ill give you a complimentary sneeze-muffin.
I look forward to it.
if you're going to do a shitty job like that, might as well make the most of it.
i hate grumpy people who work in customer service, i make the effort to be polite and friendly with everyone and im not even being paid.
so when i come out of a place where i've had really bad service i just feel really 'grrrrr! why do i bother?!'
There is no chance of me working at star bucks, until at least december.
dont be one of those tossers who we walk away from muttering 'service with a smile eh?'
is The Biggest Tosser.
just hated you, and were using any excuse to get rid of you.
And remember, any time you want encouragement, turn to me!
Pretty much every place i went into seemed to have a little chuckle when I asked for a job. Plus, in woolworths:
Me: "Im looking for some part time work"
Woman:"got a CV?"
Me: "No, i didn't think showing your qualifications was neccessary to stack shelves at woolworths"
Woman:"get a CV."
Bloody hell, this job malarky is gay as fuck.
it was because you didn't bring a CV.
She was just really rude.
I said "i didnt think id need one"
whether it really helps you get to sleep or not. The answer is: yes. Yes it does.
it's horrible! My parents are obssessed with Starbucks.
The only good jobs for 17 year olds involve being a professional sportsman (or maybe woman, I guess)
Also, apply for co-op if theres one/more near you. At one stage almost all of my friends (and myself) worked for the co-op, spread over 4/5 stores. Shit job but whatever.
with a skint at Marks and Spencers in between.
Working at Boots was AWESOME!
This phenomenon is, in my experience, rare as anything. You're totally lucky. Or intensely sarcastic, I'm not sure.
Unless you just love cosmetics/pharmacies/whatever else boots does. In which case you're a bit odd.
that I almost asked in superdrug. Luckily the manager (who Id just seen walk into the "employees area") wouldnt answer the door.
Rudness potentially saved me from a summer of selling lipstick and fake tan and all that other junk.
I just really enjoyed working there. My boss was lovely and it was the first Saturday job I adored. I eventually got moved to the perfume counter and it was wicked. Free Samples!
Lovely boss - liked colleagues.
Free samples! - you love perfume. Which, as an ignorant man, I'm going to class as a cosmetic.
Also got cheap make up.
Goddamit, I wish I still worked there!
I'm-a hit up partick tomorrow, yo.
if you're looking for a summer job. But if you're gonna be around part-time next year (ie at college) then keep going, some shit place will take you eventually.
Also bare in mind that it'll take some of them forever to get in touch with you. I was once rung up by a branch of B&Q three months after I applied. "No I don't really live near there anymore, bye"
you stink of steamed milk and everyone gives you funny looks
your uniform is stained :(
I don't like it.
I don't know why I don't like it, I just don't... You're not meant to enjoy your job really, are you?
Ah well, seven pounds an hour ain't too bad.
but, yes, I am weird.
'you're not meant to enjoy your job'
