Kim’s Answer

Gavin,

You are to be commended for wanting to help support the family - not easy to do!

One of the jobs where you potentially stand to make a lot of money is as a waiter. I say "potentially" because it depends on the restaurant, getting scheduled during prime hours, and being good at it! I know a girl who was making over $40,000 a year as a waitress at a steak house! Since people usually tip a percentage of the bill, and steaks are expensive, the tips were really good. But, this requires awesome customer service skills. You will learn it as you go. You would probably start in a different style of restaurant, perhaps a diner, IHOP, etc.

The down side is you never know how much you will make in any given week. There are jobs at carwashes, retail, fast food, call centers. Hotels, parking valet, etc. Any job that is based on tips has the potential to pay well, but you really have to learn the art! And get scheduled for good hours.

hope this helps!

Kim
