10 Kinds of Weekly Pay Jobs For a More Frequent Pay Schedule

April 20, 2021

If you live paycheck to paycheck, it’s understandable that you dread the day your bills are due — especially if they’re due before payday itself. Biweekly and semi-monthly pay schedules pay you roughly twice a month, but those dates don’t always align when it’s time to pay rent, utilities, insurance, medical bills, loan repayments, or any number of other expenses.

You would have the money to cover those bills if only your hard-earned cash reached you in time. Can you change your pay cycle? Is there a way to receive a paycheck more frequently? You can always ask your employer if they would be willing to pay you more often, but if not, there are many kinds of weekly pay jobs that send you your paycheck four to five times a month.

Weekly Pay Jobs to Choose From

There are four common kinds of pay schedules: monthly, semi-monthly, bi-weekly, and weekly. Companies are mostly free to choose whichever pay cycle works best for them (and it’s usually in their best interests), so there is no profession 100% guaranteed to pay you weekly. However, weekly pay is common practice in certain industries so your likelihood of finding a position that pays weekly in one of these industries is high. For examples of what jobs pay weekly, some potential roles include:

Rideshare Driver

Do you have a car and get a kick out of driving around your city? Consider signing up for rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft. You can work whatever hours you want, so driving is a convenient side gig if you need one. Both companies pay their drivers weekly, but they also offer features that allow eligible workers to cash out their earnings daily.

Food Delivery Driver

Do you have a car, get a kick out of driving around your city, but you’re too much of a misanthrope to talk to people? No worries, food delivery drivers get to do a similar job to rideshare drivers, but without the passenger part.

There are even more apps for food delivery than for rideshares: Uber Eats, Postmates, DoorDash, GrubHub, and Instacart are only a few examples. You can get paid weekly or daily for zipping around town, picking up food at restaurants or grocery stores, and bringing the goods to customers.

Construction Worker

If you like to build things and can follow safety rules, a construction job might be right for you. Construction workers are typically paid hourly, with overtime available. It's common practice in the industry for workers to receive their income on a weekly basis, and much of your training would happen on-the-job.

Telemarketer

Though it depends on the company, many telemarketing organizations pay their employees on a weekly pay cycle. This job is suitable for people with excellent phone skills (and don’t mind, you know, getting hung up on). Telemarketing often refers to sales, but it can also include surveys and other objectives, like Blue Zebra Appointment Setters.

Customer Service Provider

A related role is a customer service representative. Some positions require you to work in a call center and answer customer’s questions, but other roles allow you to work from home, such as Apple At-Home Advisors.

Freelance Writer

There are all sorts of ways to be a freelance writer. You can approach organizations directly to pitch articles (you gotta be bold for that!) and negotiate that you’ll invoice them weekly, or you can work for one or multiple content agencies that pay contractors once a week. If you opt for the latter, ask if the company will pay you per article or hourly.

Data Entry Clerk

Remote data entry jobs are typically low-paying and might not be suitable for full-time work, but you can look into them if you’re in a tight spot or have extra time on your hands.

Tutor

Do you enjoy working with students and helping them understand different subjects? Then tutoring is an excellent option that often pays weekly, especially if it's online. Chegg tutors get paid via PayPal every Thursday, so why not put your love of math, history, science, or languages to good use?

Transcriptionist

Transcribing audio files is a convenient job if you’re good at listening and can type quickly. Snap on some headphones and get to work with companies like Allegis Transcription or Daily Transcription.

Odd Gigs

If none of the weekly pay jobs mentioned above are up your alley, another possibility is working odd gigs through apps like TaskRabbit, Field Agent, and Gigwalk. If someone in your area needs help with something and is willing to pay for it, they can post it on an app, and you can sign up for it. Popular TaskRabbit jobs include assembling furniture, mounting TVs, and fixing running faucets. If you use Field Agent or Gigwalk, you might be asked to go to a store and provide shopper insights that big companies use to collect data.

Though numerous jobs pay weekly, there may still be a one to two-day delay when it comes to cashing in your paycheck. If a weekly schedule still doesn’t get you your income to cover your bills in time, you can use apps like Earnin to access your paycheck for hours already worked.
