6 Part-Time Jobs with Benefits

Combining the insurance of full-time with the flexibility of part-time? It could happen, if you’re qualified for one of these occupations.

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.
