Working in retail has some major advantages. For one, if you demonstrate a solid work ethic, stores are always looking for potential managers. Even better, the pay then takes a pretty decent step up if you get a promotion with a big brand. Retail is also perfect if you enjoy chatting with customers and helping them make choices. If you’ve got a knack for sales, retail jobs are a great way to hone your skills for your future career.
- Retail associate
- Store manager
- Delivery driver
- Customer service associate
- Stock clerk
Pro-tip: Retail jobs often come with fantastic discounts. Find a job with your favorite brand or retailer, and save thousands on merchandise through your employee discount. Discounts can often run close to 50% or more!
If you’ve read this far, you’ve certainly noticed how many events Utah resort areas host during the summer. All the live music, bike races, pop-ups, fairs, and other activities are also great sources of employment.
Many of these are better viewed as side gigs (you’re not going to pay your rent working a Saturday concert series once a week), but given the economic challenge of living amongst billionaires in Park City for the summer, these part-time jobs can be a great source of extra cash.
- Parking attendant
- Security officer/bouncer
- Concessions attendant
