    Default Part time work

    I have a good full time position I have been on for 15 years. Im not going anywhere, and I dont need a part time job, but my kids are usually in bed by 7:30 and I can only work in the garage so long in the evenings. Anyone here have experience with Lowes or Home Depot? Specifically in regards to employee discounts and that sort? We have been remodeling a house since October and were done with the necessary things, and Im moving on to the wants. Im tossing around the idea of picking up 20 hours or so stocking or whatnot in the evenings. Ideally I would love to find an 8-11pm stocking gig, and I considered UPS 4:30-7:30am loading trucks. I dont need the money, but I dont need to sit around and watch Netflix either.

    Want to come to Edisto and stoke fires and trim briskets?

    Edit: nice meeting you the other night. Did you make it to Briny for prime rib?

    Hell yeah I did!! I had the meat sweats all the way until Sunday packing up! Was incredible. That place is phenomenal! You should be proud of what you guys have accomplished in there! Don’t tempt me on moving to Edisto. We talk about it all the time!!

    That sir would be a dream job of mine. My long range retirement plan definitely involves me and a bbq food truck.

    I think Lowes employees get 10% off but theyre first in line to buy closeouts and customer returns for deep discounts.

    HD doesn't offer employee discounts.

    Can you shuffle your current work schedule around to allow more free time while the kids are up and make up for it off hours?

    The drive to work is applaudable but dont forget to enjoy life and some down time too.

    I have a little cleaning business. I make my own hours, only take on well paying clients that fit my schedule. I can fit it around anything my full time job requires and I don't have to tolerate assholes. I turn down jobs every week and it's not expensive to get started. Down side is I clean dirty toilets

    Do you like to play golf? Maintenance crews get started around. 5-5:30 AM. They are generally pretty flexible with how many hours you want to work. Pay was an hourly wage plus free golf back when I worked at one from 08-2011. Also, please save your back and don’t apply to load trucks for UPS. Those hours are BS. It’s more like 4-9AM or earlier. If you want to work at UPS apply for the twilight shift in the evenings. It’s a much slower pace and not nearly as demanding.

    Buddy worked part time at an airport loading luggage. Got free/discount flights and only worked 1-2 nights a week. This was awhile ago so I'm sure thats gone now.

    My wife says I’m crazy. I probably am. Just bored, and there’s a few things I would like to do around the house and they take money. Once money goes into the savings account, I HATE taking it out, so I would rather make a couple hundred bucks a week. Thanks for the heads up on UPS.

    I bet he winds up making more at his part time job than Turbo was offering for a FT gig.

    ha...you and I are the same in this manner.

    We need to remodel two bathrooms in our home. Not a complete remodel but update nevertheless. I keep telling me wife to pick out what she wants so we can set a budget and she comes to be to buy something and I tell her too late. I already put that money in savings. I told her we were not doing this on a whim...tell me what she needs and how much and she can having...so long as she get's it before I move it.

    My savings account is mid-term picture with long term affects....she's not getting it easy.

    Your predicament didn't make sense to me at first, it makes sense now.

    Start you a side hustle. You said you don't NEED the money so only take the right jobs and tell the Karen's and low-ballers to kick rocks. Handy-man stuff, pressure washing, lawn care, etc...
