The Chinese sandwich shop
The problem this year has been that since I'm moving this fall or winter, nobody wants to hire me. Where are all the temp jobs? I dunno. Anyways, my in-laws' favourite little cafe was hiring, and I think they put in a word with the boss, because he called me in and hired me on the spot. Slightly unnerving.
It's part-time, and he needs someone who speaks English to take orders accurately. Most of his staff are new immigrants and only speak Chinese. I suspect I'll be learning some bits of it myself. He's Chinese too and has never hired any westerners before. This will be fun.
Get this -- he said outright that I'd get minimum wage for servers, which is almost two bucks less than regular minimum wage, and that since the tips from his customers tend to be low, any time I made less than regular min wage per hour after tips he'd be topping it up. What kind of crazy ethical businessman have I encountered?
Anyways, the job hunt is over for now. When I get to where I'm going in the fall I'll start again, and apply to all those general labour and customer service jobs that I was qualified for but didn't get because I wouldn't be around long-term.
