Thank you all.
I can't imagine waking up at 5 a.m. during the summer though . That would be tough.

Congrats.

100 hours will get you an EMT, 1000 hours will get you a Paramedic.

I went back there today to make my schedule, I am starting orientation this FRIDAY I'm so nervous. I will be working there during the weekdays (not all, of them of course) and every other weekend. Of course they have to put me to work when the only coin shows I attend regularly are on the same day , meaning, I will be missing A LOT

Any words of encouragement or advice?

Hmmmmm-- not great.

Tough it out for a while. You're going to miss some shows but after awhile I think you'll find that people swap weekend hours.

My niece works on the weekends and she's got double shifts all Memorial Day weekend. She traded hours so she could go to her brother's college graduation ceremony in MN.

It might not happen right away but I'd be really surprised if it was not allowed.

I wish you good luck at your orientation! The issue with your hours is unfortunate, but it could be worse- my uncle (the nurse) always gets the night shift. He also has to work most holidays- what about you?

I'm thinking about working there as a summer job. After that, back to school I go to continue with my education.

The hours must suck, but, hey, atleast you are doing what you want for a job!

My uncle is also a nurse... funny story on how he got there:
My uncle has been obsessed with US military collectables since he was a kid. His uncle (my great uncle) fought in WW2, and his mother (my grandma) had been a Lieutenant in the Navy during Vietnam (although she never saw combat). All my Uncle wanted to do was be a pilot. He was in the Civil Air Patrol growing up (since he and my dad grew up in Minnesota). He joined the airforce in 1992 and was in the 101st Airborne Division, 50th Medical Company (Air Ambulance). He wasn't able to fly due to his poor eyesight without glasses (and he is partially red/green colorblind) he became a medic. He was stationed in Korea for a little bit longer than a year and he returned to the US. He then got a job as a nurse, and currently works as a Anesthesia Nurse at a hospital.
Just a note on his military side of things, he joined the Air Force Reserves in 2006 and he is now a Major in the Air Force.

So basically he became a nurse because he wanted to fly a helicopter.


But anyways, back to the OP.

I wish you good luck at your orientation. Hopefully this job suits you well!
