I just spoke with someone who works 3 hours/ per day, 5 days a week for fed ex.  The hours are early early morning (like 4am to 7am) or later in the evening (5pm-8pm) etc.  His job involves loading and unloading the packages onto planes.  He gets benefits, PAID!!! I don't know if he has to pay a portion or not but we can add Fed Ex to the list that provides benefits to part time employees.

I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

Both Fed Ex and UPS do this (Starbucks too I believe) but FE and UPS are tough jobs. I had to quit after only a month at UPS because I couldn't handle having 70lb boxes thrown at me for 6 hrs straight.
