Although life can get busy during the school year, some students still need jobs to pay for most of their things. Local jobs such as Quik Trip, Chik Fil A, and B&A Connections have several different opportunities. Having a job may not always be a bad thing though, as most students enjoy working at their jobs.
“QuikTrip is a really high paced but fun environment,” senior Nicole Unkel said. “We deal with all sorts of different people which can be difficult, but also rewarding. QT is always exciting and I love coming into work everyday.”
Broken Arrow Public Schools provides students with job opportunities such as B&A Connections. It is a program that elementary school’s have to watch the students whose parents drop them off early or pick them up late.
“It’s beneficial to have a job in high school because it gives you some spending money and gives you valuable experience,” senior Braeden Pruett said. “I watch to make sure the kids don’t fight or get hurt and I often play games with the kids like soccer or basketball.”
The food industry is an outlet many students use in order to start their work experience. Many students such as junior Kaitlyn Scott applied at Chik Fil A when the store first opened up in Broken Arrow.
“Chick Fil A is a very good job because everyone is nice and we treat people with respect,” Scott said. “This job teaches you the basic skills you need while working and teaches good people skills. Chick Fil A is very understanding of my schedule and allows me to take off multiple days.”
Most applications are available online to students who are 16 years or older. Other places in Broken Arrow that are hiring include McAlister’s, Sonic, and Wal-Mart.
