Does anyone have a side job (bartender, dog walker, baby sitter, etc.)? What made you decide to get one?

I babysit - I babysat all through high school and college and occasionally after graduating. I stopped after I got my job at EY and moved to my current city. Initially I picked it up again because I was planning to move to a more expensive apartment in my city and needed to save up some extra cash for a broker fee. I didn’t wind up moving but I’ve been working for this family for 1.5 years and I love them and look forward to going over every week. It’s a brief escape from my real life and the cash is just a nice bonus, definitely don’t need it. Also, this sounds weird, but somehow babysitting really helped me acclimate to my city and made me really feel like I live here.

I have really been considering summer landscaping. I have such fond memories of that summer job. Despite shoveling dirt and trimming weeds at 6AM for 10hours a dayterally cooking to a crisp for ten bucks an hour, the energy I had after work was unparalleled. There’s something to be said about seeing a cleared field you spent the day or week on. So not really for the money, but I might pickup a little weekend ‘scaping.

Thanks I seriously hope so too! Unfortunately it’s been about the same for me. 10 solid hours of screen radiation.

Im thinking of doing bar tending at local winery/brewery. Mostly because I’m bored and have no life on weekends but also to get some extra cash to save up.

likefunny

No, but the postings for wineries and breweries don’t require experience (based on their posting only). I think for bar tending you’d have to do a course at a bar tending school- which is also something I’ve considered.

I build custom cars on weekends. The right customers make it somewhat profitable. But they are also people I know so that keeps margins down.

Yeah. I don't make much money off it building for friends but it's a good way to practice skills on someone else's car before doing it to mine. The test rides are a lot of fun too when the owner is a member at the private road course in town.

Babysitting for my neighbors- I typically make $25 an hour so sometimes $100-175 a night and the kids are usually asleep so I just chill and watch Netflix or read a book and eat someone else’s snacks after a long travel week. Honestly it’s like getting paid to decompress and relax so no complaints

How are you all moonlighting and getting it approved by the company? KPMG has a no outside employment rule (by approval only). Are you just ignoring this rule and doing it any way? I read the KPMG rule specifically states you cannot even teach yoga classes on the weekends without firm approval. Seems a bit excessive but does everyone just do it anyway or get it approved the right way?

In a bit of a conundrum here.. my start date for a new job is Jan 18 (per the offer letter and discussion with SVP); However, I’ve yet to complete background check. I’ve seen multiple posts about people advising to wait until the completion of background check before resigning putting in 2 weeks.. but I’d need to do that on Monday to give a full 2 weeks. If I have no skeletons, why be so concerned with the background check?
