also if you Need work and can only get seasonal positions, make sure while you take the seasonal position you're still looking for stable employment, because most of the time that seasonal gig isn't going to bring you on as a regular employee
also, uhh, always take every rotten second of your break, whether or not you get paid for it. seriously. use all the time available to you to decompress and relax. its worth it, trust me
@CyclopsCaveman I worked at a grocery store for five years and a customer asked me one time towards the end of October if the company was gonna be getting any seasonal help.
I just laughed in their face.
@Ethancdavenport yeah grocery stores are especially bad about this. they almost never hire for seasonal stuff, and if they do its probably just low-level employees like baggers
@Ethancdavenport oh you work in the deli? good luck adding handing out roasts to all the normal tasks you already do. no we're not going to add people for the increased demand during the season
