I am looking for a job. A 9-5 type job and no weekends. What company's out there are closed on weekends and have regular business hours?
This is because of childcare reasons.
My current job I had for the past 8 years makes me work weekends. I have a baby now and can't afford the additional $500.00 a month on top of the regular $600.00 a month for regular full time mon - fri care. I need to find a job that is not operating on weekends. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Government jobs. Banks. The Post Office. School districts.

We don't know what it is that you do?

Could you clarify why you would be spending 1100 a month on childcare? If you work on weekends, don't you get days off during the week that would bring the Mon-Fri childcare cost down? If you work five days and need a babysitter, why would it matter what days those were? Just asking~wondering if the cost is more for weekends, etc.

Car dealerships (office) When I worked, I worked in a few car dealerships, in the office. We never worked weekends or holidays and it was 8-5. Good luck!

Exactly what came to my mind too. And check out a state government job in Salt Lake City, Utah in particular. I just read somewhere that they were planning on scaling back many state government jobs to four-day work weeks to conserve on gas. Not sure if that means the 9-5 schedule would change though.

Also the industries that support the ones already mentioned. At one time I worked for a small company that provided the coffee, related items and vending for businesses and it was also 8-5 Mon-Fri with no weekends! (and hey, free coffee!)

Most office/clerical jobs are 9-5 Monday through Friday.

FYI, there's a forum better suited for your question: http://www.city-data.com/forum/work-employment/
