I do all the work all the time. I’m so exhausted. I spoke to management and nothing was done. I speak to them and they just bitch about me after. I’m going to leave the job eventually but I’m waiting until I start uni so I can blame the stress even more and find a part time job. What can I do while that time passes?

Just slow down some don't do all the work let them pull there own weight. When the boss sees you've been working and they've been slacking he'll get on them11
Just think about where you will be in ten years and think that all these losers will still be stuck in the same place.11

Take a few days off and see who steps up to actually work vs just being there for a paycheck3

I’d say if your coworkers can’t be bothered to work just as hard and nothing is done about it then maybe you shouldn’t take the job so seriously, either. Especially if it’s minimum wage and not a passion; just something to hold you over til uni. Clearly no one is getting reprimanded or fired for slacking so why not join in.
To be honest they’ve been working there longer than the manager and I think the manager is intimidated by that
Makes sense! Before covid I worked in a similar environment for almost three years and we went through 3 managers, we were on the fourth one when the place closed in 2020. My coworkers basically ran the place Bc the clientele were long time clients and didn’t respect new managers, as they “didn’t know” how to do their job in the customers eyes lol. But I was in a similar position as you, I wore several hats, doing all the jobs during my shifts that my coworkers were too lazy or uninterested in doing. I learned from my time there not to bust my tail for a job a don’t even want, because it’s not like I was making more money than anyone else or got the recognition. A thankless job. I would never repeat that mistake again.
I’m just struggling to keep motivated until October. I still have 4 months
October? Wow that is a ways away. Regardless I’d say to do what makes you feel comfortable. My suggestion is more about taking a step back, not slacking off completely, because even I couldn’t feel right doing that. At the same time though, you shouldn’t run yourself ragged for a job where it isn’t appreciated nor compensated. You wouldn’t be doing anything other than what everyone else is allowed to do, which is the bare minimum. If they want you to continue working how you do then it should be worth it, otherwise what’s the point, you know? Your mental health comes first.
