This is a little bit of a story, but I'll keep it short. I've been trying to get a job repairing computers and I have my foot in the door of one in particular that pays a lot of money... The problem is, I talked to the owner of the shop about it yesterday and he said.. That's almost word for word, so that means I won't get the job I wanted as the "all around tech guru". I've "worked" there twice so far, because he wants to see how much I know. Thew owner said that I've been invaluable having around though, and he'll continue having me come in a couple days a week to help out when they are really busy or to fix stubborn computers. But he said he isn't going to put me on the payroll and just pay me cash (Amount is whatever he sees fit) for the days I come in. Of course, I worked for 5 hours yesterday and got paid 20 dollars. Very disappointing. A week ago and went in for several hours and got paid 40 dollars.. Which was close to around 8 dollars an hour. But what I get paid really doesn't bother me.. It's the love of the labor for me.. There's nothing more I want to do than fix computers. And for this reason, I'm thinking of sticking around. I need something like this on my resumé and I really need the money. It's also something I absolutely love to do, I just feel like I'm being kind of used though. He's also offered me another side project of selling his computers, parts and other merchandise on ebay. He'll give me 15% commission on the things he sells, all I have to do is post the sale and answer people's questions about the product. I'm pretty intent on staying because I need money, love the work, and the resume thing and the side project would be good. But I'm not sure if this is what I want. I'll probably have to get another job to support myself. What do you guys think.. Should I stay or should I go?
