For me, I started working part-time at the age of fourteen at my father's shop as a cashier or crew. It was like burning my weekends away beside finishing my CCA in school and rushing to finish my homework before going to help out at the shop. It has helped me to be a better planner for my finances and time management.
Even though I was working in my father's shop, I was not given any privileges. I was supposed to work just like any another staff of his. Reporting to work on time was one main question that I have to consider as I have to estimate the amount of travelling time that I require for travelling to his shop. Next, I have to manage the homework that I have yet to complete. So what I did was to have a plan that was able to fit into the duty roster that where I can work. Upon having discussion with my supervisor, my weekend schedule was like from after 4pm onwards till late like 11pm for Saturdays and Sunday mornings till around 5pm. With this kind of schedule not only was I able to complete my homework, I was able to have ample rest before school starts on Monday.
So remember to choose a part time job which suits your personality and capability then you will not find it tiring when struggling with schoolwork and the part time. You will then be able to enjoy and excel in the job.
