When I delivered pizza as a young man I made about 12 an hour on the weekends, after gas. I also used to bartend on the weekends and made great money and had a good time.

I would do everything I could to avoid retail, and security may be okay, but most security jobs pay just over minimum wage for the jobs that do not require any qualifications.

If you're in or near a big city, visit your nearest LaborReady office. They always have daily jobs available for those who just want to earn extra cash, on a first come first service basis.

The work is generally hard manual labor though, if it's something you're up for...

I have done pizza delivery and it was not worth it for me. I had to use my own car at my own risk with my own gas. Skidded into a curb on an icy night for a nice $450 repair. Lots of hard running around, sometimes get good tips, sometimes not. I went to some very bad neighborhoods too, after midnight Saturday night. I did it 6 months or so as a night job & I never really made much. I later clerked nights at a shoe store and made better money in a better environment.

The shipping terminals are usually looking for temp help around the holidays. It's cold, hard, work; but usually pays good. Usually it wraps up around the week before Xmas. The pay should be between $12 to $18/hour.

I remember delivering pizzas. Some of the times I had to go to the projects. It was interesting, but of course I didn't get tips. Then I went to a better neighborhood, which was better, but I still didn't think it was worth the wear and tear on my vehicle.

Retail or food service are all that I can think of that would hire only for the weekend.

Lowe's has a part time position in most stores in which you work 6pm-10pm on Fridays and Saturday and Sunday from 9am-6pm. They also seem to pay a bit more than many other retailers and definitely more than fast food.
