    moneys been getting tight and im trying to pay off some bills so I can afford to go to grad school. Been doing loss prevention for a couple of months but I need more money. I have a bachelors degree in criminal justice.

    Any one know of any jobs that pay around 17 an hour I can get? Ill pretty much do anything right now. A freind of mine is even offering me a job as a maintenance guy with the city because they get paid that much. Kinda want to find something else though

    get a real job and goto grad school at night. many places will pay for some if not all of your school cost for grad school.

    Getting in with the city is actually really good if you stick with it. Maybe work the counter in the planning department or some other easy desk job. They pay decent and have good benefits.

    You have a degree and you only want $17 an hour? Fuck that.

    I admit I lucked up, I really did.

    But I was POOR in college, I mean loosing weight because you can't eat kinda poor(I'm not exaggerating, seriously). My parents make shit for money(they try though, I don't want this to come off like I'm complaining about them, love them to death). I'm not saying I deserve it more than the next guy, but I didn't have a silver spoon up my ass growing up.

    Just being an elitist prick, don't mind me. :hsd:

    I'm just saying that with a degree he should find a salaried position that will pay for his MBA. Hes short changing him self.

    And if it wasn't for this job I would be working in Memphis making around 40K(about what my degree is worth there with no experience). FYI :squint:

    Is it so hard to believe that Memphis is the hub of the south and there /are/ actually jobs there that pay decent money?

    And you say I have zero experience, I say I started, ran profitably, and sold for profit my own marketing company while I was still in school. I was accepted into every scholar program that my state offered, I've been to national scholar programs, and invited to international scholar programs.

    You seem to think I'm not a marketable person besides my uncle having some pull in a big company.

    get real work experience now and the money will come later. passing up valuable time getting work experience to shovel shit for $17/hr is just stupid.
