Who works full time and who works part time and what other job do you have if you are part time
I worked full time through college and now this is my first year part time as i got a job with the sheriffs dept. as a 911 dispatcher. I miss being outside all day but like having a stable income thats year round and this just pads the bank account!
I'm a firefighter fulltime
Full time here, March - November. Usually find a winter job for December - February so I don't lose my mind from boredom. I think it was 2 winters ago I didn't work, wow that was a long 3 months, never again.
I just retired from my full time job, now we are going to go after as many lawns as I can. This is my fourth season so I have a base of twenty accounts to build on. I think I will find something in the winter months as well. Wish me luck. David
Surprised at the number of part timers so far. . . interesting.
Full time for me. Had 3 part-time and 1 full-time employees last year; scaled back a little bit this year to where I am still working solo occasionally.
I reccomend finding a winter job for sure. It sucks still payin all your bills and not workin. It also sucks just sitting around and havin some boring days. I worked in a factory for a couple winters, I will never work inside again. Took a winter off. This winter I worked for a grain elevator, I loved it. Get alot of hours and not bad work. It does get mighty cold out loading trucks in snow/ice and climbing a 150ft ladder for 12hr days, haha.
After 4 years of consideration, I'm finally starting my business this year. I will be part time until the business can hold its own. I drive a truck locally for my fulltime job. Cant wait to be out of that dang truck, but that probably wont happen this year. Maybe next year. I used to be over the road which is why it has taken me this long to get started. Hard to mow a yard when you are 1000 miles away.
I'm full time march-december. I plow in the winter but in Columbus, OH winters are pretty unpredictable, I could be in the truck every day or get flat spots in the tires hahaha. Had to do something over the winter, they get very boring with nothing to do, I still make a habit of 2 or 3 trips to florida though.
full time and then somei love mowing since i was a kid,and mowed for my papaw.i also do property presevation so its a half and half.
