6 Part-Time Jobs with Benefits

Job site Monster, using data from PayScale.com, has figured out the six positions that are most likely (but not guaranteed) to offer health insurance to part-timers.

First, here’s their definition of part-time and the rules they used: “All salaries listed are median, hourly salaries for workers with five to eight years of experience. Part time is defined as working fewer than 30 hours a week.”

With that clear, here are the jobs…

  1. Registered Nurse (Median Hourly Pay: $27.90)
  2. Mechanic (Median Hourly Pay: $18.30)
  3. Surgical Technologist (Median Hourly Pay: $17.80)
  4. School Bus Driver (Median Hourly Pay: $14)
  5. Certified Pharmacy Technician (Median Hourly Pay: $12)
  6. Bank Teller (Median Hourly Pay: $10.90)

The pay might sound low on those last few, especially with part-time hours. But not everybody needs full-time work, and given the benefits, combining one of these with another part-time job or self-employment could work out for some people.
