If your company is hiring for part time jobs, you'll have to determine exactly what you expect out of your part time employees to ensure that you choose the right people. A part time job can be anything from 10 to 35 hours a week, and it can encompass parts of your full time employees' shifts or fill in a time slot that was previously empty, such as at night or on weekends. Some part time jobs can be done at home, saving you the overhead of providing an office or other workspace.
Finding potential part time employees is usually easy. You can advertise on job boards, such as Monster.com or Careerbuilder.com. You can also advertise in local newspaper classifieds or on Craigslist. Your current employees may also know someone interested in a part time job, so publicize your needs within the company as well.
When interviewing a potential part time employee, ask about the person's availability and desired work schedule. Someone who seems like the perfect fit for your early-morning shift might only be available in the evenings. You should also ask about the candidate's long-term goals, especially if you hope to promote the person to a full time position later.
