Here’s a complete breakdown of all the part-time jobs you can take in Persona 5 Royal and their benefits.

Being the leader of the Phantom Thieves is an expensive ordeal. Because you must be prepared and adequately geared up before infiltrating a Palace or exploring Mementos. Moreover, you must also ensure your team’s equipped with the finest gear to hold up their own against challenging foes. That includes buying and equipping them with the finest armor, accessories, guns, and primary weapons.

That’s right, you’re in charge of purchasing the gears of all eight party members and your own, and all of it comes out of your own personal funds. After all, Shadows get more powerful as you progress through the story and reach the depths of Mementos. So, as their leader, it is your duty to keep everyone in tip-top shape and have the highest level of defense.

Moreover, it is also imperative to have health and revival items like Takemi’s medicines and food in your inventory to heal up as you go. And all of these can cost quite a fortune. The money you earn by defeating Shadows and selling treasures and sooty gears is often not enough to cover your Phantom Thieves’ expenses.

With that said, grinding for money in Palaces and Mementos is especially difficult in the early game. That’s why, like any other normal person, Joker too must have a side hustle and earn money through part-time jobs.

However, it’s not just about money. As you may already know, Persona 5 Royal has a Social Stats system that you must level up to form contracts with Confidants. And doing different part-time jobs boosts certain Social Stats – allowing you to kill two birds with one stone. But, that’s not all. Going to different part-time jobs will sometimes unlock secret Mementos Requests or a new Confidant.

Luckily, in Persona 5 Royal, you will have plenty of part-time job opportunities with flexible working days. This guide will list all the part-time jobs you can take up in Persona 5 Royal, along with their pay and other benefits.

Part-time jobs in Persona 5 Royal are flexible because attendance is not mandatory like in school. Once you take up a part-time job of your liking, you can attend any day based on the designated job hours. As such, you will get paid on a day-basis. While most jobs can be done during the Daytime or after school, some explicitly require you to work in the Evening.

Like every other activity in Persona 5 Royal, attending your part-time job will cause the time to pass. However, you’ll be able to raise your social stats and earn money. Some part-time jobs also have random special events where you may have to remember orders correctly.

Providing the best service without making any mistakes in your orders will give you an additional bonus Stat point as well as money. Furthermore, there will be days when your employers will contact you to work during busy shifts. Showing up to work on such short notice will reward you with higher pay.

How to Apply for Part-Time Jobs in P5R

The first step in joining a part-time gig is to apply for the position. Luckily, Part-time jobs are not a missable feature in Persona 5 Royal. However, you must wait until 4/18 to unlock this feature. As you walk to school on 4/18, you will overhear two students talking about getting part-time jobs. This will result in Morgana pushing you into applying for one yourself.

You can get information about part-time jobs by checking the job listings posted in the job brochure stands spread across Shibuya’s Underground Walkway. Simply walk up to one of the “Best Work” magazine stands and interact with it to check out all the job listings.

However, not all of the part-time jobs will be available from 4/18, as some require working at night. Not only that, a secret part-time job in Persona 5 Royal can only be accessed by forming a Confidant contract.

List of Part-Time Jobs in P5R

There are four main part-time gigs you can take up in Persona 5 Royal.
