  • I would go deliver pizza. It is an easy job that makes pretty good money depending on where you live.

    Thankfully I am a professional potter so if we were desperate I would make more pots.

  • As long as it's legal, I wouldn't rule it out. I had a job cleaning up after births when my old job refused to take me back after maternity leave.

  • i would do anything that pays!! we own a company and have had lots of employees who seem so grateful for a job, then decide it does not pay enough, it's too hard, just not what they wanted, or they preform badly, (sick days, being late, not doing the work, ect). i would flip burgers and do it with a smile! i would take out the trash, pull weeds, pick up dog dirt, or take a job that is commision, all with a smile on my face and a happy attitude. because there are thousands clamoring to take that spot from you!

  • I haven't turned down a job ever in my life. I do work with a smile on my face. I have been promoted very quickly in every job I have ever had. I despise lazziness at work. It doesn't mean you get hired. The economy sucks, retailers would rather hire teens and cater to student's hours. I have 2 kids that depend on me solely for childcare. Its not as easy as just deciding you will take anything.
