So lately my WAH job has been stingy on hrs, only giving phone reps 10 hrs a week. This has been going on for 2 months now. They say it's about to pick up again because our clients ( Abercrombie, Hollister, and Gilly Hicks ) seasons are going to get busy. Probably because summer is right around the corner. I've tried to be understanding. I've grabbed shifts from friends. In the mean time I'm searching for a 2nd job. I've applied to several reputable WAH companies, and no call backs. So now I'm applying for Wal Mart, Winn Dixie, K Mart, McD's, Taco Bell, Wendys, and Disney. I'm just getting annoyed because there's been no call backs, and I've called all of them to make sure they got my application!

I know I'm doing all I can. I've been working almost straight through for 11.5 yrs. I'm lucky that I have a room mate that pays there half of the bills, and food. I do get SS for my daughter (Autism), and it's enough to pay my rent, but I still have other bills to pay like food, utilities, gas, car insurance, car payment, cell phone, house phone and internet (for my WAH job). So right now I only need like 30 hrs extra a week to get me through!!!! Please god help me get a 2nd job!!

Ever thought of applying at a nursing home?Some places you don't need any certifications and its okay pay. Gas station? umm hosptials in the kitchen or dinning room or even laundry or cleaning. It hard getting a job so apply everywhere you possibly can.

I don't understand if you get SSI for your daughter and i'st used for rent? Is that how it is supposed to be used? Isn't to get help for her?
