Protip: go to every restaurant near you--literally all of them--and apply for a job as a dishwasher. Trust me when I say that, for the most part, most dishwashers don't last long at all. So if they're not looking for one at the moment you apply, they'll be looking for one in the near future.
The place I worked at last fall had four diswashers, me and three other guys. Two got fired, and the only reason they didn't fire a third was because he was a roommate/close friend of the kitchen manager.
Being a dishwasher is barely a step up from being unemployed, but it's something, and many places pay them better than minimum wage because it's such a rough job. And if you're not a shithead, the rest of the kitchen staff will like you because the kitchen staff appreciates and understands the kind of shitty job a dishwasher has. In addition, you could eventually become a cook if you pay attention to what goes on in the kitchen, or a server if you prove you have the personality and work ethic, and both of those jobs pay a good bit better. Hell, even if you just move up to busser it's an improvement because in a lot of places servers have to giver a certain percentage of tips with the bus boys. At the restaurant I worked at, bus boys could go home with $500 on the busiest nights.

this is basically exactly what I am doing.

The lady doesn't like the idea of me working 4 nights a week, but if that's the case, then so be it. HOWEVER! DO YOUR WORST, ADVERSITY! I AM A SCHOLAR OF YOUR DEFEAT!!

She doesn't like you working four nights out of the week?


What's she going to do when you get a full time job?

Hell, four nights a week ain't bad, and there's a good chance you wouldn't be working more than six hours a night, at most. A standard shift at the restaurant I work at is six hours. A bunch of people work less than that, and very few work more and only if they've specifically asked for it.

I work anywhere from 3 to 7 days a week, depending upon the time of year. Most of the year it's five or six, and I work eight hour days.



AND TO GET TO WORK I HAVE TO WALK FIVE MILES IN THE SNOW UPHILL.

both ways? Damn man, mines just a ten minute jaunt from the traaain station!

And trust me, four nights a week when you're also doing school that runs from 7-330 doesnt sound none too exciting.

This, only being a dishwasher is only bad depending on where you work. I do dish for an upscale catering company and a cafe owned by the same company, and make a few bucks more than minimum wage at either. And a good attitude will really take you a long way. I went in with no experience, but I worked my ass off and was friendly to everyone. Now they love the shit out of me, I prep food, and I get to help out at events doing more than just dish.

But yes, it's not terribly difficult work. It just kind of sucks. But like Cobalt said, don't be a shithead. And aim to be better than the ones before you. It helps.
