What: Work as a part-time bartender or server

Expected pay: $10 -$30

Husl $core: $$$$$

Where: New York City

Requirements: experience working as a bartender, server or caterer

Review: Currently only available in New York, Jitjatjo differs from most side hustles in that the company actually takes you on as a part-time employee. That’s a huge benefit because it means that they will pay the employer’s portion of your Social Security and Medicare taxes, which adds up to 7.65% of whatever amount you earn. The company also withholds income taxes, which means you have fewer concerns about making estimated payments or having an unpleasant surprise at tax time. (See our “Taxes” story in the Self-Employment 101 section.)

How it works: You sign up to be a food server, bartender and/or caterer/catering assistant, and (if your application is accepted) Jitjatjo will text you when there is an opportunity in your neighborhood. Complaints from servers are relatively mild — that they’re sometimes asked to commit on short notice, mainly.  The pay is decent, though not overly generous, but it’s also immediate. Jitjatjo pays through Instant Pay, which solves any worries you might have about waiting for a paycheck.

What their employees say: (These reviews from Glassdoor are edited for space and grammar)

“I have been working at Jitjatjo part-time (More than a year). You literally set your own schedule and work whenever you want! If you have any questions, their team is really nice and are super understanding. They do talent events every quarter so you get to meet other people on Jitjatjo – they’re really fun! Instant pay is really cool, but it sometimes just goes to direct deposit, but, whatever, as long as I’m getting paid!”

“Everything is straight forward and explained – the app is simple and user interface is great, payment is quick and easy, the gigs are fun and well paying. For somebody who has a full time job, being able to turn on and set availability for what works on my schedule is fantastic.”

“Very diverse team-Great company to work for, they treat you like family and with utmost respect-Great company culture & smart team-Room for growth-Fun environment-Flexible hours but very fast paced, if you’re not adaptable, this company is not for you.”
