I'm still pretty young and in college. Unfortunately the only job I could find was a min wage job as a barista. The job offers paid vacay if I average 35 hours a week after a year, and a raise every year with my first one coming up in a week. I enjoy doing the job in optimal situations, however recently they have ignored my requests to change my availibility. They repeatedly scheduled me to work 8.5 hours alone when the store is busy enough for two. and this schedule is five nights a week and then a sixth day with 6 hours shift. The hours are exhuasting and have conflicted with school so much I had to take the semester off. I understand that the benefits are great for a mininum wage job and i dont have much choice without a degree and I havn't worked there very long.
My question is should I consider looking for a new job, or do I owe loyalty to this employer? I feel guilty for thinking such things after only four months. I need seasoned career ladies/gentlemen, will this reflect badly on me in later searches
Follow your heart?! Seriously! Quit that job, talk to your school career department. You may even be able to find an on campus job. Do not work at a dead end job (even if it seems to have good benefits, they are overworking you because they can). I had a job like that for three years (just rolled over my 401k to an IRA). Don't put off school for any job without advancement opportunities. You owe no loyalty to a job that would work you like that and ignore your availability requests. I quit my job because I wanted to finish school. I now have my degree, a much better (albeit entry level position) job WITH ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES. Yeah, follow your heart out that door and back to school!
Quit the job, as soon as you have another job lined up! In today's economy, any job is better than no job. As you said, you will be getting a raise so you won't be at minimum wage any longer. It always looks good on a resume / employment application that you have gap-less employment.
