I am wondering about enquiring about doing evening shelf stacking at my local sainsburys. I am currently a SAHM, but would like to do maybe a couple of shifts a week so that it would ease the current financial pressures, plus DH would be home to have the DC.
Anyone do this type of work? Any advice?
Is there any other evening work which people do? I don't fancy check-out or bar/restaurant work.
I used to work for B&Q stacking shelves. It was quite tiring working after a long day with my DD (just had one at the time) but the pay wasn't too bad and I got a discount card too. I think I finished at 11pm but it was 5 nights a week so quite hard going.
Then I did waitressing - which I loved. The tips were great and I only left when they started keeping our tips They were very late nights though - finishing between 1am and 2am. I usually worked 2 or 3 shifts per week (different days each week).
Then I worked for an insurance company 4 evenings a week from 6pm until 9.15pm. It paid quite well and it meant I got home at a pretty reasonable time. It was also working at a desk so not too physically demanding. I really enjoyed that job because it was always so busy and the time flew by. There was sometimes overtime at double pay available too.
MrsBish - you want to look on-line at their career section. I believe they (the larger ones - sainsburys, tescos, morrisons, M&S) now only advertise on-line, but it won't hurt to ask your local ones too for advice.
