Jobs that won’t totally suck over the summer


by Chloe Jordan | Editor-In-Chief

Are you looking to be employed this summer, without the dying of heat exhaustion? Do you want a job that offers decent pay and flexibility? Here is a list of jobs that won’t totally suck!

Drank – Soda | Lone Star Soda Shop in San Antonio, Texas

If you want to be a “Papa’s Freezeria” employee IRL, you should apply to Drank Soda! It is like a Starbucks, but instead of coffee, it’s soda. And, instead of dealing with Karens, you’ll be dealing with laidback teenagers. The application process is simple, and you just need to DM Drank on Instagram to discuss applying. More people will want refreshing soda over the summer, so you’ll get good business with the benefits of staying indoors. If you like customizing drinks or mixing things, perhaps this is the perfect summer job for you.

If you prefer a job where you can mostly stay away from people, but take care of dogs all day, Nest is perfect for you! You’ll get a mix of working indoors and outdoors, and should have limited interactions with customers. If you are a dog person and enjoy being surrounded with animals, this would be your ideal workspace. 

Flip Flop Shops – and blue flip flip shops logo with a dark blue flip flop

If you want a less stressful retail job, Flip Flop Shops definitely has a more isolated environment. Since it is so specialized, there are less customers in general, which means less piles of stuff thrown in the wrong places. There isn’t anything customers need to try on either, so that eliminates any dressing room hassle. If you’re a fan of flip flops, apply at Flip Flop Shops!

6 mochi donuts of various flavors and pink boba and mochinut decor on the wallMochinut –

Mochinuts are donuts with a chewy twist! They make new flavors daily, so there is always variation. If you want to work in the food industry, this would be a fun start! It is a small storefront, so hopefully, there won’t be too many customers. And, it is inside and air conditioned, so you can beat the heat, while making tasty treats!

Learning Express – Express colorful logo

If you used to be obsessed with slime as a kid or are an avid Squishmallow collector, perhaps you’ll be excited to work in an environment filled with these things! If you want a job that nurtures your inner child and cares for others, Learning Express is a great option. It is in close proximity to the school and has a medium-sized storefront. If you want a low-pressure, air-conditioned summer job, Learning Express just might be the place to apply!
