Why not just quit this job and find one that you could work during the same hours your husband works so you can be home at the same times?

What do you do at the fairs?

I vote quit. But that’s easy to say. It’s not my job.

Just curious as to why you don’t get tips? I thought that was the whole point of waitressing, since tips usually make up the bulk of the salary.

I would personally quit. You can get a job at the mall working better hours.

$8 an hour and no tips = not worth it. I made $9.50 right out of high-school working as a teller at a bank and I was done by 4pm every day.

The only way I’d stay stick with that job would be if it could launch you into a position you desired in the future and you needed the experience – otherwise it’s too much stress.

 What @SoontobeMrsA: said.

And just my personal 2 cents.  I waitressed for years and my experiences working where it was a mom and pop shop where you work with the owner was always.. not so good. 

And what do you mean you’re not making tips?

$8/hour to work at a busy restaurant is so not worth it.  If I were you, I’d either look for a daytime job at a store or a better-paying restaurant job.

I would quit and find another job.

@SnowPeony:

If you do support work, then you should be ‘tipped out’ (Either a % of what the server sells or what they make).

Honestly, doesn’t sound like you need the stress at all!

@Oneeleven: Agreed.

I would definitely quit.

I would try to stay at this jo as long as possible while you look for another job. Even though it is crappy pay, a little could go a long way just in case. I’m sorry you’re not enjoying it though & hopefully you’ll find something even better soon!
