One day a week jobs

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I'm looking for a job to fit into my full time job.

 

I'm free on weekends, and was looking around for early Saturday work. So I began to look for cleaning jobs "such as in RSL clubs,etc", but not getting much luck.

 

Pretty much what i'm asking is what are some casual (or one day a week) jobs That starts early? Or companies that are known for early casual jobs. (sydney based)

 

 

Thanks in advance!

maybe check local service stations if any have driveway attendants ( ie you pump the fuel and clean the toilets )

 

mostly cleaning jobs are sub contracted now so you would have to look into companies that do cleaning and see if there are vacancies there.

 

the other alternative is maybe doing night fill at a supermarket on a friday night ( filling the shelves after it closes so the next day its all nice and stocked )

 

good luck :D

if you are going to work two jobs your extra job is going to get raped on tax, prolly worthwhile looking for a cashie.

For cash you have to look towards hospitality cafes and pizza bars and stuff

This is a common misconception. You don't get 'taxed more' on the second job, you get taxed according to your yearly earnings as per the following:

 

 

 

 

 

 

0 - $6,000

Nil

 

$6,001 - $37,000

15c for each $1 over $6,000

 

$37,001 - $80,000

$4,650 plus 30c for each $1 over $37,000

 

$80,001 - $180,000

$17,550 plus 37c for each $1 over $80,000

 

$180,001 and over

$54,550 plus 45c for each $1 over $180,000

That's exactly what I did a few years back, Saturday mornings helping with rendering/ stone masonry.

 

Guy I worked with like to start really early though, so a lot of the time we were done for the day by around 1 - 3pm at the latest, leaving me with some of the day left to enjoy which was good.

This is a common misconception. You don't get 'taxed more' on the second job, you get taxed according to your yearly earnings as per the following:

 

In SA at least, I know you do get taxed at a higher rate for your second job, as based on your weekly earnings if casual. There are three columns for casual wage earners to tax yourself (as I have to do after work at a bar). The first is "only job tax rate", which starts at approximately $220. The second is "extra job tax" which starts way earlier at around $130 (and increases at a higher rate for the more you earn) and the third I've never understood what it's for.

 

@OP, hospitality would be something to look at as has been said. If you can handle late night Fridays, there are bar jobs which are $25+ an hour, usually cash in hand or DJ'ing as -fill- said, which does require you to learn a bit first obviously. Otherwise, labouring seems to be good as well.

That sounds like crap, income tax is paid at a federal level, nothing to do with what state you're in. You don't pay a higher rate on the 2nd job, and it doesn't matter whether you're casual, PT or FT. You get taxed more on a 2nd job because you can only claim the tax-free threshold once, whether you have one job paying 60k, two paying 50+10k, two paying 30+30k, the amount of tax paid at the end of the FY is the same.

I think we're pretty much saying the same thing but I was incorrect in parts of my understanding. By taxed higher I meant you get taxed an overall higher amount (in dollar terms, not in percentage terms) on the second job because you don't have the tax-free threshold on it and are therefore paying tax immediately on any income earned, as you've mentioned.

What I was looking at was the PAYG Scheme which I'm still trying to figure out properly.
