Companies, restaurants, and stores across Vietnam are on the hunt for more part-time employees to meet surging customer demand during the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.

The demand for part-time employees often rises during this season every year due to the heavy workload and the large number of customers, according to Vu Quang Thanh, deputy director of the Hanoi Employment Service Center.

Hoang Thi Hien, head of recruitment at delivery firm Ninja Van in Vietnam, said at a recent job fair held in Hanoi that her company is busy recruiting young people for many seasonal delivery positions.

This year, Ninja Van Vietnam’s demand for Tet part-time employees has surged 250 percent compared to the same period last year, according to Hien.

The company is offering an average rate of VND8,000-11,000 (US$0.34-0.47) per delivery order, along with a fuel expense allowance.

On average, each Ninja Van part-time employee can earn from VND8-12 million ($341-511) during this pre-Tet season, Hien estimated.

Flower supplier Dalat Hasfarm is also looking for 100 part-time employees, who will work eight to ten hours per shift every day, according to Tran Thu Chang, a human resources executive at the firm.

The flower company is paying VND30,000 ($1.28) per hour and will add a meal allowance for each shift in the last week before the Lunar New Year’s Eve, which falls on January 21.

The firm anticipated that this year’s part-time employees will increase 30 percent from last year’s.

It will also need more part-time employees after Tet and until International Women’s Day (March 8), Chang added.

Phan Van Cu, a customer relations officer at job search website Chefjob, said that the platform’s customers are recruiting 20 bakers and 300 waiters and waitresses for the upcoming Tet holiday.

All those jobs are part-time and require at least four working hours per shift per day. Their average hourly wage ranges from VND25,000 ($1.06) to VND30,000.

Candidates with English or Japanese fluency will enjoy higher wages, according to Cu.

In addition, employers will provide a VND30,000 meal allowance per shift, a 300-percent bonus on the statutory public holidays, and on-the-job training.
