Food Service Weekend Jobs

Restaurants are in the business of high-turnover rates and are always looking for additional weekend and seasonal help. Be sure you are clear about your schedule requirements from the beginning. Also, most service jobs require a food handler permit that usually involves taking a short class and paying a small fee.


Do you have the ability to pour coffee and put up with other people’s kids? Consider serving for your weekend job. Of course, serving comes with much more responsibility than my half-hearted joke. However, if you can hack it, servers can make great amounts of money, and fast. Serving jobs usually require previous restaurant experience.


Don’t have restaurant experience? No problem. Become a hostess instead. Hostess responsibilities typically include meeting, greeting, and seating the customers. Sometimes hosts are responsible for assisting with beverage orders and pre-bussing tables. Several establishments ensure a percentage of tips go to the hosting staff. However, not all host staff receives gratuity. So be sure to ask and not assume on an individual basis.


Not a fan of dealing with the public? Consider securing a bussing weekend job in the restaurant. Bussers responsibilities commonly include clearing, wiping, and setting tables. But they spend a lot of time laughing with the dish and wait staff in the kitchen. This is a perfect position for people who enjoy the hustle and bustle of the rush but who don’t want to deal directly with customers. Bussing jobs require that you have the ability to lift and repeatedly carry heavier weights.


Dishwashing can be one of the busiest weekend jobs due to higher crowds of people dining out. Pros of the job are that it’s typically fast-paced, constant work, and you get to play with the water sprayer. It often comes with a radio. So that you can rock out while getting your spray on.

bartending on the weekend job


Bartending can be a promising side hustle if you don’t get pulled into the environment around you. Because bartending is a higher-paying weekend job, veteran bartenders often maintain the weekend shifts because of better tips. Be clear about your schedule requirements. Additionally, check your state law for liquor card and license requirements.


This is like my dream weekend job. Do your senses delight at the idea of smelling freshly-brewed coffee all day? Mine too. Seriously, sign me up. Baristas are responsible for being knowledgeable about and skilled in making coffee and espresso drinks. Tipping is customary.

Juice and Smoothie Masters

If the idea of smelling coffee all day isn’t your thing, try squeezing juices and mixing smoothies instead. Recent years has delivered an influx of juice and smoothie shops. Especially, in areas with climates that demand their refreshment nearly every day. As if you need an excuse to enjoy pineapple and green smoothies!

Online Weekend Jobs

Blogging is my bread and butter and will continue to be my number one recommendation for supplementing income.

A blogger’s responsibilities include drafting and creating content and images. As well as marketing and social media. It’s fast-paced, challenging and exciting. And it can be extremely fruitful. The more you put into it the more you’ll get out of it.
