Better do it now because even with low paying retail jobs, it takes forever to get that first check. It took me 2 weeks to go through the applying, interviewing, waiting for the drug test results, and all to actually start working and another 2 weeks to get the first check.

retail jobs can lead to a professional office job. such as target. dont wait or you can do it parttime as you search for your fulltime job. it is better to find a job when you have a job
