I found you can only have two if you choose the ones with different shift times so that they don't conflict, but I do wish that you could mix and match all of them, not just the ones with different shifts. It'd be nice to have a part time on top of a career too, but I guess that travels more into "suggestions"

@Haka1978 I forgot to tag this, sorry.

@Ardnaxela56 For the tests I did it didn't seem to matter. I was thrown out of one job even though they didn't overlap when hiring for a second.

Did you test this after the current patch ? You are given the option, but asked to quit when you choose a second.

@crinrict  I just retested, I can definitely get two part time jobs. I chose retail 9am-1pm and fisherman 9pm-1am and the game let me do it. Like I said in a previous post (wow looking back I worded it really poorly...), these are the jobs that have a drop down that allows you to choose your shift time. If I try to add Diver 5pm-8pm (which has no drop down with different shift times) it doesn't allow it and cancels out the other jobs. 

 

I also tried retail 9am-1pm and barista 5am-7am (which has no drop down menu), barista canceled out the previous job. 

 

As far as I know, jobs with fixed shifts/no drop down cannot be stacked even when the times do not overlap, jobs with a drop down CAN stack. If this is not by design then we have a bug. But if other people aren't managing to even get the drop down shifts to stack when I can do it just fine then... bigger bug

@Ardnaxela56 I really don't know how it was before cause I never had two part time jobs for my teens (hardly play teens) but from what guides say on this, it was possible before to have two jobs that don't overlap.

So it should be able to jobs that are on sat/sun and another that's weekdays for example.

Guess @Haka1978 would need to give some insight.

If it worked before but isn't now, then it's most probably a bug.

@Haka1978 So before the patch you could mix say baby sitter (working Sa/So) and Barista (working weekdays) ?

I just realized I tested a teen. Are you reporting for adults only or also teens ?
