Easy options for part-time jobs include retail and customer service work. Jobs that are somewhat more physically challenging, but not demanding in terms of time and training, include landscaping maintenance, babysitting, personal assistant or delivery jobs.
Part-time jobs can make good work options for people who do not have the time to take on full time positions, such as high school students, college students and people who are already working at another job. Part-time workers may find less intensive, demanding jobs easier to work around their study or existing work schedules.
Many retail or grocery store jobs involve working with customers or working behind a cash register, which involve customer service skills, but these jobs are not particularly intense or demanding. Other retail jobs can involve mopping floors, stocking shelves or bagging groceries, which are not very challenging tasks.
Working in a customer service center can also be a less demanding job. The field involves good speaking and people skills, but does not usually involve a huge time commitment. Many people call customer service outside of working hours, so it is a good job to work around other activities.
Landscaping maintenance can involve tasks such as raking leaves, mowing lawns, trimming hedges, planting garden beds and shoveling snow. These tasks are easy to learn and do not involve any specialist training. Teens and other workers can even set up independent businesses in their own neighborhoods. Delivery jobs such as newspaper delivery or pizza delivery are also not especially demanding.
Babysitting and personal assistant jobs involve more responsibility than some other part time jobs and come with challenges, but they are often easy to coordinate with school and work schedules.
