Best Paid Part Time Jobs

Best Paid Part Time Jobs, Whether you’re underemployed , or just need a little extra scratch to make it through the month, a part-time job can be the difference between making it and striking out . Not all part-time jobs are equal, but good paying jobs at less than 30 hours a week do exist. Here are the top picks for those with a little less time on their hands.
Wait Staff Positions
Servers at restaurants have some of the most flexible hours in the part-time job market. If you’re willing to work split shifts, late hours and up to six days a week, the potential to earn a more-than-average hourly wage is there. Demand for servers (no longer referred to as “waiters” or “waitresses”) is highest during the summer months, states Nathan Laurie, President of Canada’s “Jobpostings Magazine.” “With tips, you can make anywhere from $150 to $300 a night, depending on where you work.” Given the current job market, fast cash is definitely a significant perk for this part-time job.
Laurie also suggests painting homes as a viable option for those seeking seasonal work. While the hours are long, the earning potential is significant; “There are students who graduate debt-free just by working summers as a house painter,” he remarks. The average annual salary for a full-time painter is $31,000, making it an attractive source of income for even part-time, entry level applicants.
If you don’t mind being outdoors for extended periods of time, are good with your hands and enjoy a challenge, landscaping may be a good fit. Laurie emphasizes that it is an ideal job for those who want to make their own schedule. You don’t have to go to work for a boss in this field. He adds that many landscapers are self-employed and “end up making more money than if they worked for someone else.” It’s important to note that landscaping isn’t limited to seasons or geographic area, either; customers in cold areas of the country will benefit from a landscaper that can do double-duty with a snow blower or scoop shovel.
