Default Job seeker Spring/Woodlands area

My daughters BF (likely to end up my SIL... so I'm motivated!) is a 26 year old with an associates degree (in business I think) but is currently working fast food to pay the bills.

Any suggestions of entry level jobs in the Spring/Woodlands area that would pay at least $12-$14/hr and fairly regular hours? Doesn't have to be full time but it'd be a plus.

He is very good interpersonally but doesn't want a commission sales gig.

Preferably not in food service.

Since he's unlikely to see this ever, I'll be brutally honest... His mechanical aptitude is pretty much non-existent.

He is Honest and hard working and I believe trainable.

My brother in law sounds about in the same boat. He works as a merchandiser for cocacola and is making like $18 an hour putting out product with paid mileage and a company phone. Have him look at somthing like and work his way up.

Join the Army as an Officer through OCS. There used to be a program that would give him 2 years, active duty and fully paid to finish his 4 year degree.

No offense but he sounds like he definitely needs to further his education in some shape or form or open himself up to new ideas. It sounds crazy but a lot of kids these days make great equipment operators but most never even think about it, it’s easy work for the most part and once he got some seat time in these guys are making **** good checks and in demand. Some of the best people I have now are younger guys that would have never thought about it but blind luck crossed our paths. X Box meet real world

If he's good on the computer he should look into the communication officer job. It pays well and a good working environment

Iíd highly recommend learning how to code if he doesnít have an inclination to work with his hands and somewhat knows his way around a computer. He could start off by using DataCamp.com to learn (Python is one of the more common ones Iím told) then shortly after learning a few basics he could start taking jobs on upwork.com. He could do all of this while working his current job and slowly transition.

I have a good friend with a nuclear engineering degree, and a masters, who does coding. All of his coworkers donít have degrees and are self taught coders making pretty **** good salaries.
