Retail is usually pretty flexible depending on where you work. I worked retail for quite a few years, both full time and while I was a student. What are you taking in school? Could you get a job that’s related to your area of studies?

Serving is extremely flexible.  And you can make as much as you want, really.  The harder you work, the more tips you make.

I would think waitressing would allow you to work evenings…

@Mrs.Sunflower:  Hostessing is a great option, but have you thought about bussing?  They recieve a portion of the server’s tips at the end of the night on top of an hourly wage (unlike servers who only make around $2.65 an hour).

I second waitressing. Being a nanny can also be flexible – it allows you to apply to work for families that will need availability around your availability!

Ok, this one is outside the box and will take some time and training, but what about being an EMT? I heard the hours are really flexible, and they always need people nights and weekends.

Places like Lowes and Home Depot are big enough that they don’t necessarily need constant availability, they love people to work nights and weekends, and they pay well (plus they’re open late, so you’ll get hours).  I had a roommate in college that put herself through as a lead cashier at Home Depot- she stood around all night supervising the self-checkout lines and counting drawers and she made like $12 an hour, and they worked around her class schedule.

@Mrs.Sunflower:  Also lots of schools have on campus jobs that are very respectful of your class schedule. But they tend to pay minimum wage.

I am a commercial cleaner, I clean a restaurant and a cinema, after midnight though! It takes me about 6 hours including travel time, and I make $2900 per month!
