I've been looking for months for a job and today I was hired for one; the problem is, I have an interview tommorow for a place that i've really been wanting to work at, and that my new job is seasononal (until april). Although my new job is seasonal, it's something and I can't take the risk of quitting before I start, as I may or may not get the busser job. That's why i'm planning on keeping it for now, but what if the interviewed job hires me in 2 days? Would I be in the wrong for quitting?
age: senior in high school so no 'go to college' yet plz

Wait and see if you get job #2. If they ask when you can start, tell them you'd like to give 2 weeks notice at job #1. Tell job #1 it's just not working out for you, so here's your 2 weeks notice.
Yes, these may be sh!tty teenage jobs, but this is good practice for the "real world"Yes I'm fat, but at least I'm working on it, unlike most other fatties. No self-delusion, no excuses.

I mean its no big deal either which way, just know the difference in pay rates. sign waver = $/hr, bussing = like 2$hr+25% tip base. You'll probably come home each night with 25ish or so bucks give or take. keep the job until you KNOW your starting the other job. regardless you wont be using job a as a reference if you also got job-b, so **** it. just give them a heads up as soon as you land job-b IMO

Theres nothing wrong with taking one job and interviewing for the other. You can always quit job #1 or just do both for a little bit if you even want to do that.
Note - this is not considered ethical in the real world but in your situation its all part time and nothing is binding on your end of the deal

there's probably a high turnover rate for sign wavers. Either way, you do what you need to do for your life and don't worry about quitting in two days, they aren't your family or friends. They don't care about you, you get a better opportunity, take it. And don't give no two weeks notice after 2 days on the freakin job, man, that's terrible advice.

I quit UPS after my first official work day (after 3 "training" days), and didnt even call them or anything. Loading for UPS sucks ass.
I also was recently offered a job, I showed up to "orientation" and...found out it was one of those BS Kirby Vacuums franchises. I didnt show up to the next day of training after that.
I feel no guilt about either of those.
