Summer Jobs - May 25th 2012, 07:33 AM

So I've been looking for a job for a month now and I got hired at McDonald's and I accepted. But then I get called for an interview and I'm not sure whether to go or not. The interview is for a clothing store that sells Japanese brands and I would really like the job but I already accepted the McDonald's job. Should I try for the interview anyway? And in the chance that I get hired, should I accept? As of right now I don't feel that taking on 2 jobs will be difficult since it it summer time but the conflict will arise when I have school. I will probably have to make a decision and I plan to do a senior project so my schedule will be packed. In the instance that this happens, which position would be worth taking on more? A McDonald's crew position, or a sales associate one? Summer is only 2 months and I don't want to seem flaky for quitting after such a short amount of time. I've never had a job before so I'm overwhelmed with all this opportunity and decisions to make.

I'd take both and then drop the McDonalds one later.

I suggest that you keep the McDonald's job for now and go to the interview for the sales associate position. If you're offered a job, you can accept the job if you feel you'd enjoy the job. From that point, you have two options: 1) Keep both jobs and, when school comes, select the one you enjoy most 2) Drop the McDonald's job if you feel you'd enjoy the job as a sales associate more.

First impressions last. Start behind the eight ball and you'll never get in front.

I agree with everyone on that, through I cannot imagine working in a MacDonalds personally (mainly because I can't eat their food, nor is there any MacDonalds where I live.) It's good to try for both, and decide what you like better, because they're basically very different jobs that deal with costomer service, so they can be good experiances for later on in life.

I've said it once, I've said it twice, I've said it a thousand fucking times
That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind
But this has got the best of me, and I can't seem to sleep
It's not 'cause you're not with me, it's cause you never leave

I understand that the other job is much more appealing than McDonalds.. But you already made a slight commitment by accepting the position.

I would just go to the interview and see if they offer you a job position, if they do I personally would resign from macdonalds and accept from the retail store. It may seem like a nasty move on your part but look at it future wise. Working in both retail and fast-food places alike, I can tell you that you will learn much more skills in a retail rather than fast-food. In retail you are able to gain more knowledge in customer service as they provide you and expect a much higher level of customer service than at fast-food.

It also looks alot better on job applications and scholarships to have retail than fast-food.

And remember should you chose to resign from your macdonalds position although you just started they can't hold anything against you.

Good Luck
