Have you ever held two jobs at once? - August 11th 2010, 09:24 PM

The temp agency that hired me in June FINALLY called me to come into work tomorrow morning for first shift (meaning I have to wake up at 4:30am... bleh). I'll be doing this job five days a week (Monday-Friday) from 7am-3pm.

Thing is, I also have an appointment at another place (customer service, answering phones, basically sitting at a computer all day) which would probably be from 3pm-10pm.

If I asked the other place if it would be okay to work around my first job's schedule, would they do it? I don't have changing hours. It is and will always be 7am-3pm. I'm just afraid of waking up at 4:30am every morning, working till 10, then going to sleep right away. I'm afraid if it will be overwhelming or not... ugh. Help?

Two is better than one.

I've never held two jobs before, but my boyfriend decided to do it this summer, and he's SO overwhelmed. Can you imagine working 15 hour days?! I even hate working my eight hour shift. I think that the first job would be willing to work around the other job if that's what you chose though, but I would really think about it if I were you, is it possible to only work two days a week at the second job? Or maybe you could have less hours at both jobs in order to work both of them?

I've held 2 part time jobs, but not 2 full time jobs. Maybe talk to them, and maybe you can do like 7-3 m-f at your one job, then at the other one maybe do like 4-8 instead if you can.

How are you doing 7 am to 3 pm and 3 pm to 10? You have an overlap and you will have to leave early from one place or be late to the second.

It sounds like it will be very overwhelming. I was stressed out and very unhappy when I worked 12 hours at a call center and around 25 to 27 hours at a grocery store on top of 18 quarter hours at a university. I think you are insane for willing to be doing something 7 am to 10 pm. It is doable, but not many people can keep the pace very long.
