How It Works
You and another person share the responsibilities of one position.Some job-sharers split up each day,overlapping at lunch:others split up the week.Some work three days each in order to have more overlape.You and your job-sharer do not have to work the same number of hours.One could come in two days a week,for instance,while the other is on the job for three days.Depending on the position, you either divide up duties or do roughly the same tasks.The division of labor is more straight forward with certain jobs,like receptionist,bank teller,or retail clerk.It may be more challenging for someone who has ongoing contact with a limited number of customers or clients.
