From our sister site, parttimehires.com:
Part-time workers now represent more than one in five U.S. workers, according to a February 2013 survey from Gallup. Fewer than half of U.S. workers (43.3 percent to be exact) are now working full-time jobs, which represents a significant decline from a year earlier. Correspondingly, the number of part-time workers as a percent of the American workforce has increased in the last year, from 17.6 percent in July to 20.6 percent last month.
Critics say this is a bad trend since many of these part-time jobs are reported to be low-wage positions that don’t offer benefits. What do you think?
Here at WeekendJobHunt.com, we do a regular roundup of which states have the most posts for weekend jobs.

- North Carolina - 11,702 jobs
- Pennsylvania - 11,381 jobs

If you have a full-time job, or are busy taking care of your family during the week, there are plenty of high-paying weekend jobs that you can take on to earn a little more money.
Although a lot of businesses are only open Monday through Friday, there are plenty of companies that still need some extra help on the weekends. These opportunities are great for job seekers who need a more flexible working schedule.
Whether you want to work in healthcare or IT, sales or administration, there are lots of options when it comes to high-paying weekend jobs.
Here are 10 high-paying weekend jobs you may want to consider:
- IT worker - There are lots of IT-related jobs that need to be done on the weekends. From updating computers and other office equipment to launching new websites and fixing server issues. And since these are typically highly-skilled jobs, employers are willing to pay a pretty penny.
- Registered nurse - People don’t only get sick during the week, which is why hospitals and doctors’ offices need registered nurses who are willing to work on the weekends. Nurses already make a pretty good salary, but those who offer to work weekends and be on call usually earn even more.
- Certified Nursing Assistant - This is another healthcare professional that hospitals and doctors’ offices need on the weekends. Just like with registered nurses, CNA’s who are willing to work on the weekends or be on call typically earn more money than their 9-5 counterparts.
- Sales worker - People are usually home more during the weekends, or out running errands, which is why it’s a perfect time for salespeople to make their pitch. Whether you want to make telemarketing calls or do on-site sales, there are plenty of companies looking to hire salespeople to work on the weekends. And since a lot of sales positions include commission and bonuses, you can earn a lot of money in this type of job, even if you’re only working on the weekends.
- Childcare worker - Parents who work regular jobs during the workweek usually spend their weekends shopping or catching up on housework, and sometimes they need a little help looking after their children while they’re trying to get things done. Whether you want to work for a childcare agency, open a daycare in your home, or offer to watch someone’s kids in their own home - parents are willing to pay a nice price to make sure their children are in good hands.
- Security officer - A lot of businesses are still open on the weekends, and those that aren’t might have valuable items or information that need protecting, which is why many companies hire security officers to monitor the premises on weekends. And because security officers are essentially putting their lives at risk to protect the company’s property, they usually earn a large paycheck.
- Driver - Many businesses need to transport goods over the weekend so they can reach their destination by Monday, which is why truck drivers and other transport workers who are willing to work on the weekends get paid a lot of money for their efforts.
- Housekeeper - Many people who work all week long don’t want to spend their weekend cleaning their own home, so they hire professionals to come in and do the job for them. If you’re willing to work weekends and clean large houses thoroughly, you can earn a pretty high salary.
- Retail worker - Retail businesses are perhaps the largest employer of weekend workers. Especially as we get closer to the holiday season, shopping activity will be picking up and retailers will need a lot of extra help to keep up with the demand. And those with a little experience who are willing to work weekends can usually earn pretty competitive pay.
- Receptionist - Businesses that are open during the weekends typically hire a weekend receptionist to take calls, greet guests, and handle other office duties. And since most receptionists work during normal business hours, those willing to work on the weekends are usually paid more.
If you’re looking to take on a weekend job, consider choosing one of the higher-paying positions above.
