I got myself into a poor paying job recently, working in a restaurant. The job was tiring, and the boss was ever demanding. You have to serve customers, remember the names and price in the menus, mop the floor, wash dishes, clear tables, cash in and cash out money...
My first day was a total disaster. I had no experience working in a restaurant before this. I had to tell a white lie to the boss that I had worked in a similar position in a winery before, or else she would not had hired me (how I came up with such a lame excuse/story was another story). She was expecting something from me (since I said I had experience), but it turns out to be the opposite.
I had to learn to clean tables, which type of plates, spoon, fork, chopstick, bowls or cups to serve. Remembering the menu was also another problem, nut it turn out that several dishes had the same price, just that they have different charges for different size. Huh, that was easy, and yet it took me 2 days to get it!
It was quite a nice experience working there. I met different people, made good use and planned my time, gained a (or should i say, several) new skill, visited different places (or else I'll only be familiar with my studies area!), bought my girlfriend an ipod nano and myself a 512MBM DDR2 RAM, and got myself some pocket money. Yeah, I have to say that I enjoyed the experience.
Should I quit the job now? Well, not yet. It will still be my part time job while I'm still planning my own business at the moment. So, stay tune.
