Hello Pit,

I’ve been put into a real crappy situation and I am going to be forced to pay for all the bills on my own (i.e. Mortgage, Car, Student loans, etc). In order to avoid going bankrupt, I decided that I am going to seek a part-time night and/or weekend job. I figure in order to stay afloat I need to consistently earn between $250 -$300 extra a week to pay all the bills.

I currently work 8:30am – 5:30ish Monday – Friday and one Monday each month I work until 10pm. So I figure I can put in 3 – 5 hours on the week day nights and pretty much any hours on the weekends.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Under the table would be ideal, but not a must.
I was thinking about delivering pizzas. However, my car only takes premium and with that kind of driving I’d probably get 15MPG. Although, it would be under the table and hopefully tips would be reasonable.

I consider myself a craftsman, as I am very good with my hands. I can do all sorts of residential construction. Also, I am very good with cars and can fix just about anything. Only problem here is that these sorts of trades require a clientel and it wouldn’t be steady income.

I’m sure there are a lot of College or High School people here that have part-time jobs during these hours that could offer suggestions

I tried googling, but it mostly comes up with work at home scams.

Pretty much the only things I wouldn’t do are fast food or telemarketing.

Thanks for your help

Prostitution or find a hotel...both might go hand in hand.

bar work?

I'm going to need this extra source of income indefinitely, so I'm trying not to get a seasonal retail job.

I have considered bartending, but I've been told that it's hard to get in some where without barbacking for a while first. Plus, it's even harder for a guy. If it were available, this would be a top choice. How does one find an open bartender position?

Wouldn't that be nice? Just absolve myself of all responsibilities...
But who would take care of my cats?

Just a warning, most pizza places only pay their guys about $5 an hour and they usually take a cut of your tips for that night too, so I'd rule that out if I were you.

Ask around all of your local hotels and see if they will hire you as a Night Porter. Definitely mention that you're good with your hands as Night Porters frequently double as unofficial handymen, fixing various things that go wrong during the day.

This is also the kind of job that will allow you to pick up other skills like bar tending, the bar staff will be much less busy at night during the week and may teach you some stuff in the resident's bar if you get friendly with them.

Yea, from what I understand that's how it works. Although, I haven't heard them taking a cut from the tip money around here. One of my best friends delivered pizzas for years and made pretty good money. I think it's hit or miss depending upon the place and area.

That's actually a really good suggestion. I didn't even think of that. I'll definitely take a look into that. Thanks

Is the car necessary? I feel like thats a big money sucker, insurance payments and gas seem like theyd be far more expensive than taking the bus.

Yea, the car is a big money sucker. However, you really can't get around LI without one. The buses suck around here, and there is no train stop where my primary job is located.

Depending upon how things go, I may try to payoff my car loan to free up a large monthly debt payment. However, I need to maintain some sort of savings in case something catastrophic happens.

I don't mind putting in the extra work... I'm the type that needs to stay busy all the time.
