    Some of them rip you off.

    Pre Uni pays you $15 per hour as a starting rate.

    These tutors did not work to get 99+ ATAR (though some scored lower) so they could get paid less than a 'checkout chick'.

    Also, what are you doing at uni. Jobs that relate to your chosen field come in handy.

    It is more entertaining than most service work. Easy work. Lots of interaction with different people. Late hours are probably the worst part. Pay is good, like $25 an hr maybe, double time on sundays etc.

    Bar work is only good if you don't mind working while all of your friends are going out having fun haha. Also you have to have a fairly good sense of humor to deal with all the different personalities/levels of intoxication/aggressiveness (in some cases) that you encounter.

    while big chain stores tend to provide hours, often casual work at small local businesses (like work as waitress or receptionist) pay quite well. i was a dishwasher at a local cafe and got $15/h at 17y/o
