    Work is always available. You just gotta keep persisiting. If your not picky about where you work, then you shouldn't have any problems finding work. Even in hospitality. There is ALWAYS work there. I've been doing it for 7 years. I can give you a name of a hospitality agency if you'd like...PM me if your interested.

    I hear all supermarkets and department stores are looking for shelf packers at this time of year. Its not great work, or high paying but it fills in a gap between being employed and unemployed. ;) And potential employers are usually impressed if you are doing something rather than nothing. They like to see you busting your gut to make an effort rather than you sitting at home.

    This is truth.

    Even better if you have done volunteer work. That really shows initiative and good work ethic.

    Ebay buyers, who 6 weeks after receiving their goods and leaving positive feedback, launching a paypal claim to reverse their payment!
    I can just tell that Paypal is going to shaft me regardless.

    That sucks Merrick.

    As far as jobs go, I just got an email from the HWY saying that they want bar staff and others for summer. I might do some for a laugh...I worked there for five years a lifetime or two ago...

    Waiting around for Tradespeople - when you book, you are the first job of the day, then they ring to say that they will be late, and instead of coming at 8.00 am, it might be closer to 10.00 am .... meanwhile, I sit here and wait, with barely any furniture in the house and only the internet or foxtel (if I want to lie in bed and watch it) to keep me company ....

    Public transport!!!


    for the most part it works fine but when you need it to be on time so you can get to places before they shut they are always running late...

    Bus or Train??

    I love it when the bus is late in the morning, and it pulls into the train station as the train is pulling out.

    Or vice versa - catching the train home, the bus driver will see the train pull up, and leave while we are coming down the stairs!!! That has happened more than once.

    Of course, there are also times when the bus just doesn't turn up!!!
