So i can get a part time job at the LFS for $10 an hour part time.:banana:
Now here is why i want to work at the store other than the obvious. i am currently in school to get my BS in IT specializing in MIS. ( i like saying it) and i am currently a part time student and in the fall i will be full time and need to have a more flexable schedule for class. now my problem is that i need to make about $150 more a week. so fingers are crossed. i am looking for one more part time job.

oh and i would get corals at wholesale, same with well anything in the store.:dance:

WOW that sucks, most LFS even offer good customers 20% off on a regular basis. Most LFS I deal with offers employee wholesale or 10% above wholesale.

i know it might not be my place to say this, but they shouldnt stop you from getting a job somewhere thats ridiculous. if its something you have a passion for and you get a discount i cant see the downside. yall need to tell them that your grown *ss men and can do what you want, then go buy a red corvette and have a midlife crisis. but seriously, they should be happy for you. and mshonk2 i would go for it. thats a great discount and they will pay you too, you cant ask for more

sounds great!

do something you love, makes life a bit "more better" :D

that will also give you more time with your son/family, or about the same?

Just be careful...most everyone I know that has every worked at a LFS had the same problem...they never seemed to bring their paycheck home in an envelope, but rather in bags of saltwater.

Less stress and the Guy said I will have like 5 hours a day to do schoolwork and that leaves time for family. And my wife would be out the door if my check were in corals.

Yeah, that's no good... I wish you luck with your new job! Now you get to see how many knuckleheads are in your town that don't do things properly....
Try not to beat their heads in too hard! ;)
