5 Great Seasonal Jobs for Retirees

Working after retirement in the spring, summer, fall or winter can pay bills and keep you busy


5. Nursery Worker

The nitty-gritty: It's all about getting dirt under your nails, tending plants and answering customers' gardening queries. More physically demanding tasks may require cutting and stacking sod, staking trees and packing plants to fill orders, and digging up or moving shrubs and trees.
The hours: Spring and summer are the busiest times. Expect weekend hours.
Median pay range: $7.94 to $12.12 an hour
Qualifications: Training is on the job. It helps to know the difference between an annual and a perennial, or course, and what plants do best in the shade versus the sun. You might consider taking a master gardener class to boost your résumé. Green thumb, anyone?
