What are some jobs that pay up to 20 an hr starting?


>Jobs that require just a certification (tired of school don't want to go through the mental strain of a degree)

> No blue collar jobs like Hvac ( I don't want to work with my hands much)


The only jobs I can think of are :

*Lpn (its only a year program-- youre basically a nurse but it's very stressful. When my mom told me at one point in the job Id possibly have to put my hand up a constipated patient's *** and pull **** out.. I decided right then the gloves nor money is long enough for that type of job)

* Payroll (This is good but I worry about screwing up people's money)

* Sterile Processing Tech (Im heavily thinking about this-- however I heard people say with this job youre basically a glorified dishwasher) but it pays up to 17 though..


Any other jobs you guys can throw in ?

Pizza delivery if you know how to get tips. Not a pride worthy job though.

Other jobs that come to mind

Shipping/receiving clerk

Truck driving and product delivery

Technician jobs like replacing car windows or whatever else there's a demand for.

Medical billing

Police or tow truck dispatcher

Food and or liquor demos- sampling to people at stores- there may be a Facebook group local to you where jobs are posted - try Brand Ambassadors of *your town*

You’d need a food handlers card and/or alcohol servers permit- both can be obtained online in 1 hour or less for less than 50 bucks.

It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for the times they are a changing.

What about a receptionist job? Not sure if this is what payroll means. A good friend of mine did reception work for a while - she actually worked at a private psych clinic I used to go to all the time. She was very anxious at first and actually did mess up the payments a lot at first , but eventually got better at it.

She left though - not sure what happened.

Thank You ! Ive been a bit wary about medical billing because I heard some people couldn't find jobs in that field ... but thanks for the other options !

No youre fine. payroll is just making sure everyone's wages are accurate. As for receptionist, I have major phone anxiety but I know if I keep at it i'll probably fare well like your friend whom i hope is doing okay.

Thanks for the advice/suggestion !

Why do you need a permit to serve alcohol if you don't need one to drink it?

I can tell you a story about her. (a lot actually but just this one for now) I didn't realise her anxiety was as bad as it was but when she first started that job she actually had to stop her car to be physically sick on the way there. But she went and did it and gradually got okay at it. She reminded me of that when I told her I was anxious a few times. I found that very impressive.

I'm not sure if I could do that tbh.

I think im going to bend a bit. I see certificates for medical coding, data entry and Payroll specialists that pay well ..so i may give one of these a try. I love that its fully online 🙂

Hard to get a job that pays that well without education, I could use $20 an hr though I'm right with you.

Its training in who you can serve, when & where you can serve, how to handle people you have to cut off, & what the punishments for violation of these rules are. You can literally put a company out of business, be fined and jailed for breaking those rules and if you caused a business to be shut down for violations they can sue you as well

I agree with others that itís a bit tough to find jobs that will pay that without some kinds of certifications that arenít labour intensive

Yeah it is hard which is why I'm looking for jobs with minimal education because Im honestly tired of school.

Payroll specialist pays well-- however most employers look for bachelors.

Lpn pays 19-20 but I can't groom or wash naked people

Central sterile processing seems pretty decent.. pay is like 17 and up Im sure
