What’s wrong with cutting grass and painting? I get working “security” is mostly standing around doing nothing, but are you really too good to have to work for the money?
Are they??? How much above min wage should he get for mowing grass once a week?
honestly I kind of agree, mowing grass isn't hard. however painting and yard work would be maintenance, so getting OP to take on part of that onto of their standard should get them 8-15% increase for full time worker. if they are just part time fill in sort of thing then I get tossing it in to a multi role job. And at this point it could be out of necessity. Either way OP should look into a raise, and keep looking for better work if they are minimum wage.
Find a different job if your unhappy with it.. or be thankful they are attempting to keep you on and allowing the cutbacks they need to take and having you do ONCE a week. It sounds like a company that cares and your just looking at the negetive side of things
Did you think of doing a counter offer on wages? If they have no one else, as for a $3-$4 above the wages offered as a counter and see if they’ll take it. If you have no intention of wanting the job, it will then be no problem if they rescind the offer. No matter what people believe, it is perfectly well within your rights to negotiate wages. You dont have to accept minimum wage. If you really are good at what you do, they’ll likely take up the counter offer, i’ve done it before and gotten hired ( even with a $5/hr increase counter offer)
