Full-time jobs with part-time hours
Whether it’s starting a business, embarking on a passion project, or making more time for ourselves, it’s almost impossible to do so when work often leaves us feeling swamped by the end of the day. On the other hand, most of us still want to hold down a full-time job rather than a part-time one because of the benefits and stability that it offers in the long run.
But not all hope is lost – here are some full-time positions that only require you to work 4 days or less a week:
1. Production Operator ($2,000/month)
