how much should i expect?
some of you may have knew that i am actively looking for a temp job since last week when i posted a thread.
Just wondering, how much a 18 year old male, fresh from JC be expecting for his wages( per hr basis)? This is my first time formally looking for a temp work as previously i was working for relatives; so i don't really know the benchmark..would love someone to give a gauge.
would love other comments too..

actually i dun mind admin/clerical/customer service/warehouse/tuition etc, oh well, the list could go on. Im quite easy on it, even sales, provided there is an okay basic salary.
you got lobang? My wage demands are not very high, market rate i would say. just need some money and to pass time.

Normally job agency would quote abt $5.50 per hour with CPF. some will "cheat" you of your CPF. so remember to ask. CPF is 13% payable by the employer on top of the hourly pay.
Good luck in your job hunt

help help~~failed another 2 interviews today.. =/

Based some of my experiences......"In Singapore"
Data Entry Clerk - $600 - $800
Production Operator - $750 -$1000K per month
Technician - $900 - $1200
Assistant Engineer - $1200 - $2000
Enginer Entry Level - $1800- $2800
If you are not married......so just grab any job with a good stride - irregardless of the pay. Its basically an eye opener and a chance to get to be in the open world and meet new people and learn inter personal skills. Experiences are non tangible but its very useful for your career path.
Learn from your past interviews and if possible call them ans ASK why you did not get the job or wasn't selected. Be sincere and frank in your interviews.
This was one of my question posted to me for my current job.....
My Manager's Manager asked me.......(True story)
SO Can you give me 3 good reasons why i should employ you......
I blabberes the first 2 reasons and gave this one for the last reason.....
"...I AM UNEMPLOYED!!!!!!...."
I smiled to him and he just laughed......the next couple of hours after the interview...i was offered the job!!!!
BTW: This is another cool experience....just wanna share. I went to a job agency in Jurong East for an interview - during vacation. Guess what....the job agency manager ended up employing me to that agency !!!! Hahahaha....
There i got to know all those pointers i shared above. Also....agencies get jobs applicat from Around the world. They receive FAX from other country etc......so that explains why sometimes some jobs are hard to get ...as most companies go for the "Ai Chi, Ai Pi...atitude..." -> Cheap and Good....

thanks sulhan and s_wrx!

As much as pay isnt a problem, but some is like $4.50/hr. I dun even know if that can cover my food and transport..furthermore, i think i should give some to my parents. So, what leaves me? Sigh!
