I've been offered an unpaid internship position as a dishwasher.

I'm tired of being a NEET, but I don't have any job experience to get a real job.

Should I take it?

Internships are for experience in fields where you want to get into. Unless your goal is to become a professional dishwasher, that is the biggest fucking slave scam I've ever heard aside from TARGET volunteer interns

there's at least culinary schools built around the idea of cooking.

you don't see schools for washing dishes... maybe a maintenance/janitorial school, but fuck those jobs anyways.

If you need to learn washing dishes you basically need 1 hour to learn everything you need, and lets say at most 1 more hour of practice.
YOU SHOULDNT WORK MORE THAN 2 HOURS as dishwasher without pay

>>26106622
>soul crushing
This cannot be stressed enough.

Working twelve hours (sometimes more) in blistering heat in the summer and freezing cold in the winter, few or no breaks, constant stress and demand. And god forbid your boss is an asshole who doesn't treat you with any dignity, like mine was. God forbid he treat you like more than just a piece of a machine.

And all this for minimum wage.

A week of free time in the kitchen is totally normal. They have to make sure he fits their style, lives up to their standard, etc. but someone working for free as a dishwasher is a total scam.

It actually makes sense for a restaurant manager to hire someone as a dishwashing intern before fully hiring them.
It takes a while for people this generation to get used to manual labor in a high-energy kitchen.
Why should the manager cough up money to the person being trained?

>he doesn't look past a cursory glance at statistics
Factor in the labor participation rate and the portion of the labor force caught in situations that count as full time employment but aren't good situations - underemployment, temp employment, part time employment - and you get a picture of an extraordinarily sick labor market where power is dramatically tilted toward employers. Literally the only thing that changed after the recession that brought the unemployment number down is that people were unemployed long enough that they stopped being counted and a large number of people entered the working poor (and given the state of the labor market, those people aren't just poor - their job security and their chance of getting a new job are thin).

There's a reason the public sentiment about the state of the economy doesn't match up with the growth and employment stats.
>>
>>26108132
Are you from Sweden op? I'm a NEET myself and these organizations have tried to trick me in to working slave labor for their friends multiple times. They're supposed to help you get into the workforce but all they do is send you off to their friends to wash dishes and clean toilets.

....maybe so but that argument doesn't even apply in this case. The big voices in "propaganda" in our society have taken the rosy stats and ran with them. If people thought what they did on the matter owing to the public voices with big megaphones - your augment - they'd all have a comparably rosy view on the economy because that's what they're being told is happening.

The fact that Americans think the economy is shit means that it's so shitty that they don't even listen to the media about it

>unpaid
>dishwasher
>internship

whoever offered you that can get fucked with a rusty rake. it's regular practice to put complete newbies in the dishpit to see if they can hang, and if they can get better. if they've got a good attitude and try to improve, it doesn't matter how bad they are to start.

if you work, you get paid. that is horseshit, OP. "experience" in the restaurant industry means you will reliably have minimum to just under minimum wage anywhere you choose to go for the rest of your life. it gives you rent money and beer money but very little else. one day the restaurant MAY decide they like you enough to turn you into a prep cook, and if you work enough ridiculous hours doing that they MAY let you work the line where you'll work just as long as prep cooks but with a fuckton more pressure, and if you slave away at that without complaining for long enough they MAY move you up to management and put you on salary where you end up earning less per hour than you did when you were a dishwasher.

a trail of misery and tears awaits you if you start washing dishes and let yourself get paid in "experience", OP.

You generally need to start with an unpaid internship for a year or two. After that you can start applying for the entry level stuff.

>>26106584
>I don't have any job experience

Don't even need to bring anything, can just hand them a blank piece of paper right from their own printer

Shouldn't entry level stuff be the starting point? isn't that why its called entry level?
>>
>>26106556
Don't even bother man.
Dishwashing jobs are easy but also fucking awful. When I was one I wanted to kill myself everyday and I was getting paid to do it.

Heres the thing, my country is doing the same to the ppl here. Trying to fix unemployment numbers by making us work 3 months at a place for free becuase "they might hire you!!" Or the "either way its good work experience!!"

No its not good experience. Noone is gonna give a shit if you have 3 month experience washing dishes on paper and the chances that youll just get exploited for 3 months and then dropped are high, especially as a dishwasher.

Dishwashing requires absolutely no skills and confers absolutely no long-term benefits (as opposed to say, volunteering in an office, which at least gives you exposure to office culture/etiquette and administrative procedures). You don't even learn the people skills that regular retail gives because you're stuck in the kitchen all day. If you want to stop being NEET but have no experience, apply for actual minimum wage jobs.

I'm not OP, but your life is sad. 8.50 and hour is practically working for free.
