  • The best option that I know of that I have seen many women utilize is working for the school district. Working in the cafeteria, working janitorial..etc. Those jobs are school hours, have the same days off usually, usually include benies..etc..

    Working in retirement homes/nursing homes carries a 7 day around the clock schedule in many departments. Even working in the food service department has hours outside of school hours. And it's hard to have a guaranteed set schedule in food/janitorial depts as well in most cases.

  • Do you have any customer service experience? What about a bank teller? :)

  • Try a daycare! Usually very flexible with hours.

  • You can also apply with your local court house. They usally work to accomodate you. You can also apply with them and see if you qualify for child care service, that they pay for. Good luck hon

  • I never thought about daycare work. My sister babysits from home but if had sick kids and was watching them I would feel bad since i would have to take them along. My parents watch her boys just for that reason. I had jobs If husband would Have let me move but would not.

  • The school district would be your best bet but remember that working school hours is only about 32 hours a week which doesn't pay very much.
