I feel like I am looking for the impossible here but I am trying to find a part time job with benefits. My husband works for a brokerage company but since he basically works for himself, there is no health insurance. I am currently a SAHM of a two year old and the only benfeit of me working would be health insurance( since all the money I made would go to childcare) We are currently paying almost $1100 a month for insurance and we are trying to save for a house......it is seeming impossible. We are in north jersey right now.....if anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it
Thank you.

The suggestions that immediately come to mind are COSTCO, which if I am not mistaken, you are eligible for benefits as a part-time hourly employee after 180 days, and a temporary or staffing agency.

COSTCO doesn't pay less than $10/hour, which is pretty good by that industry's standards. As for the staffing agencies, it varies as to how many hours you have to put in before you qualify for benefits.

Good luck.

There are some employer's who will pay benefits if you work a certain number of hours pt (I think most at least 25 hrs). As a special ed teacher, I can tell you that if you worked as a teacher's aid full time (which would still give you many holidays and the summer off with your child), you would get great benefits. And some preschools have aid jobs where you could work plus have your child with you at the school. Good luck!

Maybe try looking for insurance companies that are hiring. I work for one in Edison (we're not hiring right now), and our employees get free benefits. Maybe another would offer these same benefits to their part time employees.

Thank you.
You didn't mention what type of work you would like to do? Here are a couple suggestions: airlines & restaurants (corporations) you can make your hours and usually get benefits by working twenty five hours or more a week. Good luck!

Also look into Lowe's or Home Depot. Most positions (at least here in PA) pay at least $8/hr., and the benefits packages offered by each company are very generous. Granted, "big-box" retail is very stressful, but it's a pleasure if you enjoy working with the public! ;o)

ditto SWB; I was under the impression that Home Depot, as well as ShopRite, offered health insurance to its part time employees. It might be worth working a few nights a week as a cashier just to have the coverage.
