RHU Advice: Need Two Jobs, And One Job Isn't Worth It


RHU HeadFrom: Timekeeper's Twit

I live 35 to 40 min away from work, only get four hours at a time, and really only once a week. I'm lucky to get two days. It's annoying because I know it's not entirely my manager's fault. I've seen the chart that Home Office sent with the allotted hours.

However, I have told him I need at least six hours to make the trip worthwhile for me. It hasn't happened yet.

One of my other pet peeves is that I do not get my schedule until at least 5:00 on Saturday, and my week starts on Sunday. So I never know what time I am working. (It's usually the same days though, because I actually have another job that's not retail during the week, but it's only part time with VERY minimal hours as well. Whole other story.)

This makes it difficult because I can't drive. It sucks having to tell my husband at the last minute, "Oh yeah I work tomorrow!" Because he works too and it's hard to get another ride if I need it. There is no public transit from where I live to where I go.

I've been debating with myself, because really I need both jobs. I need all the money I can get right now, and I am supposed to go on maternity leave at the end of May. So I don't know if it's worth just quitting now, or waiting or what? I've been there for five years now. It's tough.

If it is putting stress on you, is draining you out, and is causing you more problems, then it's not worth it.

Agreed. It sounds like it's more trouble than it's worth, especially if you're soon going to be a mum!
