I currently work at a hotel front desk, and when I did this in undergrad it was perfect. I was able to work close to 40 hours a week and was able to do a ton of homework. Before that, I worked in my dorm front desk and again, was able to do a ton of homework. Flash forward to today, and I work at a SUPER busy hotel where I have almost zero time for homework. I am allowed to work when I can, but like I said, there is very little time. I'm staring into the next 9 months or so, and my program is going to get even more demanding, and it doesn't look like the hotel is going to get any less busy. I need a job that is relatively flexible with hours, due to class schedules, and hopefully not too many night/evening hours. So where can I work close to full-time and be able to do as much homework as possible?
Details- I checked the job boards at all three universities in town, but none of them are offering anything more than 15-20 hour positions. I can try finding a job a less busy hotel, and considering that I'm only making 8.75/hr, taking a job at minimum wage in IL (8.00/hr) isn't a huge step down. Is there anywhere else I might be able to just occupy space for 6-8 hours a day and get paid for it? Am I asking too much?
