High school can be a stressful time for all students. A student has to get good grades, impress friends, and still find time to sleep. During these trying times it can be difficult to find a source of money. Despite all the pressure that students are put under, many are able to balance all the school pressure and have an after school job.

Students at Bountiful work all over the city. They are not picky about the job as long as they get money, but one popular choice for many students is Dick’s Bakery in Centerville. Alison Heffner, who works at Dick’s Bakery in Centerville said, “It is a very good job. The boss works with me to make schedules that work into my life.” Heffner is an avid dancer who has classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday. She usually works for four hours a day Tuesday and Thursday and enjoys every minute of it.

Sometimes the hardest part of having a job is finding time to hang out with friends. Aubrey Jines, who works at Bountiful Family Cleaners, couldn't find time to go to high school football games because she had to work every Friday.

This year when football season came along, she talked to her boss about a schedule that allows her to go to the football games and get most of her homework done. The most important aspect, she says, “Is having good time management skills. You can’t work all day and expect to have enough time to do your homework.”
