Just starting the career...pay is crap.

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to find a pt job evenings/weekends in a LTC facility as Activities Assistant. I completed my certification in the past 6 months.


I received a call today for a pt positions/PRN position. Would probably be mostly a few hours on the weekends driving the bus to church, etc. I go for an interview on Sunday afternoon.


I was given a short phone interview, and was told the position paid minimum wage......UGG, that is it? You want me to drive a bus load of people at minimum wage, which here is $7.40. UGG again.


I realize this is a good way to get my foot in the door, and I understand that, but seriously, isn't the pay of minimum wage for this job a little pathetic? I would have to work the first hour to pay for the gas to get there as it is 20 miles away, and it was mentioned a couple hours here and there. I was hoping to find a pt job working every other weekend at least 8 hours. My ultimate goal is to get experience and hopefully eventually a full time job.


I will know more after Sunday, but sure hope they want someone more than 2 hours at a time on a weekend day, or else it won't even be worth my time, but giving me experience.


I know this isn't a job that makes a lot of money, but I certainly thought it would be more than minimum wage. Thanks for you thoughts on this.
