Paper Girl (Former Employee) –  Oakham24 October 2017
For the amount of papers I had to deliver, I needed to get up very early to complete it before school on weekdays and Saturday rounds were considerably larger- in the rain and snow the money was definitely not worth it.

Newspaper Distributor (Former Employee) –  Leicester15 October 2014
Delivering newspapers early morning in the local area, 7 days a week
Re-delivering newspapers to those who were not in and also taking a second paper round at the weekends. Hardest part was the weight of the papers due to magazines that were included. Learned to manage time and made sure I was on time to deliver the newspapers as well as to get ready afterwards for college.
Pros
Morning Walk
Cons
Not enough income
