Once on the job, “many of the needs of part-timers are exactly the same as [those of] full-timers. They want to receive fair and equitable compensation, do meaningful work, like the people they work with, have their opinions valued, and receive recognition for what they do.” However, “given the variety of reasons individuals choose to work part-time, an attractive offer varies depending on the type of part-time worker an employer is hoping to hire.”
