    Okay, I am in desperate need of a job, and unfortunately I need to keep my days open. I'm thinking that a job that has some sort of early shift, such as 3AM -11 AM, 4 AM-12 PM ,(Mon-Fri) or something along those lines, would be good.

    Please, any suggestions you have, I am open to them. Thank you so much! Name types of businesses or jobs that hire for shifts of this type, and if you worked these shifts, feel free to include your opinion of the job.

    I know several guys who work at a Miller Beer plant in NC during those times of day. Don't know where you're located, but I'd bet most beer plants operate in a similar fashion. They all seem to be pretty pleased with it and I think they get paid pretty well too.

    Also try shipping companies like FedEx, UPS, etc. They do quite a lot of early morning activity.

    UPS has shifts from 11-3 and 3-8 or something like that. you could probably work both shifts. but i think you only make about 8.50 an hour.

    Some printing companies may offer swing shifts running copiers or working in the bindery department. The printer I work for has done this for employees in the past, when necessary.

    Convenience stores. Also, data centers usually require shift work, too. Or, a stock person at a grocery store.

    Tractor Trailer Companies still load by hand to get all on trailer, not exceeding the 80,000 pound GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight). Before I got crippled, I was a Professional TT Driver for the biggest union company in the USA. Union Trucking companies pay quite a bit for their dock workers, look to see if you can find a company who has a breakbulk (hub)nearby. Hubs employ hundreds for a average 250 door dock. I hope you get a good job so you can continue to update your toys and your life style.[​IMG]

    Foreign Exchange - it operates 24-hours. Become a broker or do some back-office clerical work.

    Casinos also operate 24-hours and can provide you that flexibility.

    mmm the money pinch. Good luck with this shift if you take it.

    I had a friend that would pick up stacks of newspapers very early in the morning and deliver em around. Pay was pretty decent he was telling me. I'm sure there are even more jobs at that shift for newspapers...

    Check out your local bakeries. I worked at a bagel shop during college and 5AM-11AM was when I was hard at work making the bagels.

    Yes. Newspaper delivery and delivery support usually works 11-6am. Delivery itself can be good depending on the cash you need. My wife made approx. 1100 take home a month for 3 hours a night but 7 days a week just throwing. There are also other positions avialable like dock work, loading, and even driving between hubs. Easy work but demanding due to hours and it being 7 days depending on the paper.

    good luck.

    Computer operations jobs. Large companies & software support companies will have data centers that are open 24 hours. You don't have to be a computer programmer since you're pretty much just dealing with hardware and moitoring the system, but they generally look for someone with experience with computers.

    Customer service positions will tend to have these hours as well, especially call centers such as ones for credit cards.

    You could always get a job at the cemetary.

    Decent pay, Good benefits, and 25% off burial.

    I hear they are really knockin em dead.

    Not to mention you always have company. It's like one big frat party all in your own backyard.

    Now, I once was offered one of these jobs. It was just not for me. And I kid you not. They used the 25% off burial as a job incentive.

    The guy offering the job actually said things like "Anyone close to passing? We got good rates" and "Dont be left hanging with one foot in the gutter."

    A very strange experience to say the least.

    "Tractor Trailer Companies still load by hand to get all on trailer"

    I did this for a few years in my early 20s("Lumper" was the "official term").Worked for the drivers not the warehouse.What happened was a temp agency sent me there.I realized that the drivers paid the agency ALOT more than I was getting so I quit and went to the warehouse manager and talked him into letting me work there. Employees were happy too.

    Truck drivers were tired after driving and would rather get some sleep than unload their trucks - so I did it for them. Broke down pallets, because they were stacked to high for the warehouse and such. I worked hard,got paid great and made full time money for 1/2 days work. Great way to stay in shape too[​IMG]

    Made anywhere fom $30 - $120 for each depending on whether I had to just take a level or 2 off the top of each pallet to loading the pallets becase they slipped the stuff on the floor on slipsheets.Even on slow days I cold do 3 $30 jobs.

    Theyre open around the clock and would often call me if they had alot of work when I wasnt there. Mo money.I usually would start at 5:30 or 6 and 95% of the time was home before noon.Often much earlier.

    And of course youll have to keep records of your pay for tax reasons since its a cash job [​IMG]

    I did the UPS 3-8AM thing in college for a couple of months. I would leave work and head straight for my 10AM class in Manhattan. $9.50 an hour to start back then ('99). It's probably more by now.

    It sucked.

    Adult video store clerk. They're open all night, and the ones down by campus are always advertising $15-20 hourly wages. The downsides to that line of work may outweigh the pay benefits though...
