Have any of you worked two full time positions at once before or known someone who has, during the pandemic? I’m contemplating doing so.

Background:
I have worked at company A for 7 months now and they require I come in once a week.
I also just accepted a fully remote position at company B and was going to put my two weeks in to company A when my background check for company B was nearing a close but now I kind of just want to keep both
They’re both finance positions with 2 YOE.

Suggestions?

I definitely will!

One of the companies was a startup and they had funding issues so he stopped working for them when they went under. But prior to he worked for them for about 3 years. He did start another position soon after as a part time employee but left recently because of creative differences. He doesn’t need the money, but he wants to FIRE so he took on extra because he could manage it easily.

I’m here to follow along and hopefully learn something. How can anyone have the time to have 2 jobs? I can barely keep up with my 1 job with the amount of workload.

like

My job at company A I work about 10 hours a week of actual work and company B I think will be a bit more demanding at 20-40 hours a week. So I’ll probably total 40 hours a week with both positions

If you don’t mind me asking ? Do you feel you are not making enough and that is why you took on a second job? Just curious because I’m thinking of taking on another job because I don’t feel I’m making enough. But my hours here are definitely over 40 a week.

Lol, it does! Congrats on running your own business! I run a small e-comm business as well!

If you can keep up and you don’t think either company will find out (ie it won’t be a noticeable change in your work or hours, or coming in 1 day a week for A won’t affect job B etc) then I don’t see why not. So long as it isn’t a conflict of interest, of course.

I did this and I almost died trying to balance it. But I think because both roles are somewhat remote it is doable

like

My main role was completely remote and my second one was twice a week in the office and then went to asking for full 5 days in the office. I started the main one in July. In December I got the 2nd one and then resigned in March and kept the main one

Curious - could this cause an issue with taxes?

Yes, because the 2nd income would most likely put you in a higher tax bracket.

A background check is primarily concerned with criminal and credit history. If a background check sees a current employer, the assumption is that a) this checks out, as it’s probably listed on your application/resume, and b), there’s no immediate follow up afterwards.

A couple of points, however…. First, there may be some ethical concern as you might be perceived as having a conflict of interest. For my current employer, I had to notify them that I intended to continue teaching as an adjunct at a local university.

Second, when it comes down to moving on, how do you explain your double dipping to your next employer? F you list it, that might come across as a less-than-desirable trait for a potential new employee. If you neglect to mention it, what if the next background check discovers it? Now you are viewed as being deceitful.

like

Wouldn’t the current find out when the new runs your background check?

Not really because when they run your background you technically are still employed with your current company.

I did this pre pandemic. It is doable - depending on where you are in your life. If you have a young family - it woukd not be possible.

My biggest trick was promising deliverables at the beginning of the work day - never at the end - so I had evenings and weekends to put finishing touches

I am currently doing a masters degree at Concordia so I believe 25$/hr would be more appropriate. Am I aiming too high?
