Hi everyone, i'm looking for a job that i can do in the weekend, i mean something like deliver commercial papers to people who pass near me or to work in a supermarket to give gifts and to talk about a thing that supermarket sells, i can also wear a costume like santa clouse clothes and talk with children but i need a part time work or something like this. And you? have you ever tried to get a job like these? Thank you for your responses.

So, are you looking for a weekend job? Or just a two day temp job? I would try those labour ready or temp agencies. They might be able to connect you with something. When I was a kid, I had a weekly newspaper route. You can get those by calling the number in the paper.

I did a job for only two days. It is a exhibition for computer, and the pay is quite high. There is also job in the supermarket and mall, my job is a promoter. And it is quite enjoyable and the job is quite light. Codris, for a easy job, you could ask for a part-time tuition and work as a tutor. It is a great job if you interest in it.

Yes I have had jobs where I only worked 2-3 days a week as an extra part-time job. Mine were mostly bartending or waitressing jobs, and I am actually thinking about looking for a 2nd job again as I am behind on my bills and want to get them paid off as quickly as possible. Best wishes in finding a part-time job!

Well, i never work like this coz my job takes most of my time daily, my office hour is 8-5 but sometimes in the end of the month till late night. But Codris, that was not bad job, u get a job in the week end and extra money meanwhile the other one spend money in the week end time. Proud of ur self for whatever u do, do the best and goodluck

Hi codris, I understood, what you are trying to tell, If you are interested to work there are a lot of works to do, But I can't suggest you anything, or anyone else here, The reason is when you are asking for a real time job, You should specify the geographic location, to get better responses...! I can tell the opportunities in my locality, That will not suit to a person who lives in a near by city, So be descriptive to get some valuable response...!

Hi there Codris. Well i haven't chosen the weekend part time job, i chose to do it during the week back in 2007, but if i wanted i could have worked for only 2 days a week, with the same salary and same number of working hours (20).

I am having a hard time understanding, do you want the job for just 2 days or do you want the job for 2 days a week. If its 2 days a week then it will be reasonably easy to find but if its just 2 days period then that will be a very ahrd task! I have worked just weekends in the past and then picked up overtime when I wasnt at college!

I'm not sure where you are, but there is a company called Pump it Up. Its a company that hosts parties for kids, and they have bounce houses. Anyway, a few of my friends work only on the weekends and they get tips. Hope this helps!

Yes, I've done that kind of jobs. For example, do you know the people who stay all day in a supermarket with a tray full of small sausages? Guess who was the person holding the tray! It was bad payed and lasted only 1 day, but it's a funny experience to tell your friends.

Sure, when I was in college I always worked for a temporary agency and even if I was home for one or two days if I called ahead they always had a job lined up.
