View Full Version : Looking for night work - suggestions needed
DD is now 9.5 months old and I am looking to do some night work. After 8pm preferably. I was thinking call centre work. I have tried all the agencies in my area, but no-one seems to get work like that in, the ones I've tried don't anyway. Can someone suggest anything I can do?
I am open to all suggestions, I will basically do anything. Well, almost anything.:eek:
You could do night fill at your local supermarket or shop. I did this to put myself through uni and there were a lot of mothers there. You go to work after bubs is in bed and you are home making breakfast and school lunches before they wake... :yes:
The kids have no idea that you were not there, it works really well for mothers of kid who are in school as they sleep then, but I am sure you will find a way to manage. :)
I was also going to suggest night fill at your local supermarket or you could look into agencies that put people in cleaning jobs (offices/banks etc) or- if you want work earlier in the evening you could do market research/telemarketing. Good luck!!
Post office sorters work nights, generally between 1am and 5am. I have just recently gotten a job at a hotel on reception and waitressing. It's great. I work 7am-3pm Saturday and Sunday and at this point I work one evening shift starting at 7 or 8pm and finishing somewhere between 11pm or midnight. Last week I only worked 17 hours and I still cleared about $350 or so. Maybe this is something you could look into?
I worked in a factory as a process worker at night. If you go through an employment agency that places temporary workers it is a good way to get work straight away - you probably will get the odd shift to start with depending on how much work is available, but if the factory likes you, they'll probably request you personally to come back, and may even put you on their own books eventually. That's what happened to me anyway. I liked factory work, it was low stress and I got good exercise, and there is often room for advancement if you want to get promotions - in the place where I worked, if people were good, they could become a supervisor within a year or two.
Best of luck:) .
I work nights at a supermarket. I don't do fill I actually do presentation of the store and face all the labels and packets etc the same way! It is great work and no heavy lifting either.
I work 3 shifts a week twice in the mornings from 5am - 8am and then once a week at night from 6pm - 10pm. The pay rate is approx $20 ph! So good money!
Hi Tracey, I work at my local RSL club in the functions dept.
It is mainly night work, we do all sorts of functions from corperate meeting to weddings. I love it.
Maybe try at your local clubs, you'll need an RSA and RCG certificates, but some emlpoyers do inhouse training.
Good luck with it!
Gee thanks guys, lots of great suggestions so far. Keep them coming this is wonderful.:thumbsup:
i do Party Plan cost me nothing to start i get mainly request for night booking which suits as DH can look after the kids, i love it! It's a hobby business so has some great tax benefits as well.
If this sparks your interest PM and i'd be happy to answer any questions you have there are so many Party Plans that there is bound to be something you like.
I hopefully will be starting a nightfill position soon :fingerscrossed: you can look for positions at www.woolworths.com.au
Another alternative are direct marketing roles like being a Tupperware demonstrator etc. There are heaps of different party businesses like Enjo, Jigsaw, Le Reve, etc
I was a demonstrator for about 4 years or so and I enjoyed it at the time. A lot of the demonstrators were SAHM and did parties at night or on the weekends. If you are committed to the business you can make it work - for a 2 hour party you could easily make over $100 (depends on sales). There are also benefits like holidays, rewards, gifts even a company car etc if you meet certain levels and in some cases you can go up the heirachy and become managers and get even more rewards.
It's good if you are dedicated and can follow through on sales. You make as much as you can put in - I've seen some very successful people quit their full time jobs because they make more as a demonstrator! :D
Picking and packing in a warehouse is good exercise as well as good pay (penalty rates after 5pm).
I worked as a Radio Query Channel Operator for years in the Brisbane Taxi Industry, so after DS#1 was born I went back to work doing the 11pm-7am shift. Had great fun. I don't do that anymore, I am happy to be a SAHM but if you are willing to work the night hours, try the Taxi Companies. Sometimes, they need people to answer phones and take bookings etc. You never know unless you try. Good Luck. :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed:
I do party plan by evenings and weekends... also have my name down for nightfill too and there is a call centre behind us aswell :fingerscrossed:
Thanks for everyones suggestions. So far I have taken some of your advice, haven't followed up on the new ones yet, there are some good suggestions there.
This is where I have applied for so far,
local hotels, motels etc
So far nothing. I know its early days, but I'm getting a little frustrated. I really want to be out earning a little bit of money so we can build our house quicker.
I used to do LeReve, so am seriously thinking of getting back into it, still not sure.
ATD-FAH - There is a stip joint just up the road and I have seriously contemplated looking for reception work.
