I need flexible hours! Where should I apply?

I recently lost my job I had for 6 years. It was perfect. ( not the money) But I started work right after they got on the bus and was able to punch out right before they got home. It wasn't full time, but I still got 30-35 hours. Now I can't find a job that is willing to be flexible. I am a single mother. I can't afford day care. I also share a vehicle with a good friend of mine. I can't afford on right now. I have desperately been trying to get my feet on the ground since my divorce a year ago. My ex wants to take me back to court for more custody(he doesn't want to pay the support). I am afraid that because I am currently unemployed, he will win. So any suggestions on decent part-time jobs from 8am-3:30pm????

  • Look into the school system to be an aid or a lunch kitchen person. Wishing you luck in your job search :)

  • Thanks, but I live 45 miles from any big city. I already checked with the lunch program. They are very full.

  • School bus driver, office administration in the school? Waitress (working lunches only)? Go back and get your degree as a nurse. *thinks* Work at a daycare that does after school care too -- so you can enroll your kids (some offer free care for people that work there)...

  • I work my own hours. I love it. I make money 24/7 and sometimes I wake up to more money coming than I when I went to bed! We get paid 5 x's a month. Our company is new, but parent company is solid, debt free and publicly traded. Our industry made over 5 billion $ last year and our products sell themselves.

    I am having more fun than I have had in years. I am making more money than I have in years. It is recession proof and I am making new friends everyday. Come and join our team. I will make sure that you succeed.

    PM me for more info.
