I was offered $13 and accepted thinking that was the standard they offered other new hires. I don't know how to bring this up. we all have te same job and same duties, same serving background experience, and I have a degee unlike 2 of the employees. what do I do? I can't bring it up and say everyone told me what they make because I don't want to get anyone in trouble for talking about it. and I feel like I can't stand working this new job anymore knowing I am doing the same thing and have more bills and student loans to pay making less, I need advice!!! please

  • What job should I take?

    Hi, I recently moved to a new area and I have been looking for jobs for 2 months. It's been a tough time job searching after graduating college last December- I've not found anything and have kept working at my same bartending/serving job. As I said, I recently moved because I just got married, and after 2 months, only 2 opportunities have popped up--- another bar/restaurant job, or an admin assistant job that doesn't require a college degree.... Neither jobs do, but the restaurant job I know I'd make more money and drive less, but gain "office" type experience.... where as the restaurant job would just add more time to my customer service experience and I'd make more money... I told each job I would take them, and they both want me to start on the same day next week. I took them because one came up before the other, and I didn't know if anything else would come along. I figure maybe with a restaurant job, I could continue to look for a better job that requires what I went to school for and am paying student loans for. But I'm torn. Any insights or opinions? Because I need to let one of the places know asap that I cannot accept the job any longer. Thanks. My bachelor's is in Business with an emphasis in Marketing... the restaurant is a high volume, expensive, popular restaurant

    My boyfriend and I have been together over 3 years now, we know we will be together 100%. We did live together the past year, but had to let our apartment go because there was no reason for us to live in North Dakota where he was going to school- he just finished his last in school semester of his Doctorate of Physical Therapy program...now he is doing clinicals in 2 different places until May, so I am back at my parents waiting for him to be done. I graduated with my B.S. in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing in August 2011. I have not actively started looking for jobs until recently because I knew I planned on waiting for him. Anyways, to cut to the chase, he has great chances of getting a high paid Physical Therapist job anywhere he wants basically because Physical Therapy jobs are easy to land. I, however, only have a Bachelor's degree with no experience yet because I've been working as a waitress and retail jobs my whole life. I will need to start out entry level, and in this economy, I think entry level is even going to be tough to land right away. He tells me that it makes sense for him to follow me and wait for me to find a job since it will be harder for me....and what I think is it makes more sense to follow him because he can start working right out of clinicals and after his PT test in July. and his income is definitely going to be higher than mine no matter what I end up finding because he will have a Doctorate, and I only a Bachelor's. I think if we moved near a larger city, he could start working right away while I look, and in a larger city, I would hopefully have a good chance of finding something soon after moving because there are more businesses and companies near larger cities. I don't want him to wait,.... what if it takes me a year or more to find a job? This economy freaks me out, and especially going into it with a degree but no experience. What do you guys think makes more sense?
