I highly suggest avoiding fastfood... those places are horrible and usually with minimal wage, no sunday rates and unpaid breaks. I have friends who work at subway and get no benefits. Retail is generally a good place to start.
Going to try getting a job at a supermarket/retail store or maybe a receptionist/data entry sort of thing, my employability for christmas casuals is kind of shot because I'm going on holiday between christmas and early January.
For anyone thinking of working in fast food places, it really isn't that bad. I do work at Mcdonalds and have stayed for a year + now. It depends on the management really, like any job. They will make you work, but most of the time you actually want to be doing something because of how boring it gets when there's nothing to do.Peak times can get to you, but most of the time it's just easy repetitive work. The wage..is well it's a wage..like most jobs, hovers around.
