I enjoyed the job, most of the time. The mall is hardly my favorite place to hang out, but it's nice being in a place where there are always people wandering around. That was something I always enjoyed when I worked on Capitol Hill or on the UW campus, and something I missed when working in suburban office parks. The dynamism of the setting lends a certain energy, I think. That said, there were times when the large number of people in the mall, combined with the too-small number of people working in the store, made the experience less than enjoyable. I'm thinking specifically of the last few days before Christmas. I remember one day, the MOnday before the holiday, I think, when during my four-hour shift I was only away from the register for a total of 15 minutes cumulative. That kind of sucked.
So now I've only got one job, the one at the sandwich shop. But in a fortuitous bit of timing, I've just been asked to take on some supervisory responsibilities there, so I'll be getting more hours and more money. Can't complain about that.
