    i work at mcdonalds XDD

    the only thing that's keeping me from quitting is the fact that my best friends work at the one i got hired in, my old high school friends work there too, and the coworkers are all fun and...some of them are hawwwt yo~~ harharhar. so in a summary, the teamspirit in my particular restaurant is awesome :].


    go mcd's! the ppl, not the food, haha.

    I'd like to work at Starbucks. A guy I know could hook me up, but the only hours available...So effing early. Figures. I'd also like to get a job at the hospital doing patient transport since I already volunteer there, but you have to be 18.

    Does anyone know about Barnes and Noble? I know it's not like the typical job that teens want, but I'd really like to work there.
    Life is friggin' fantastic.

    i have a job @ Kumon math & reading learning center...had that job for almost 2 years now..started when i was a sophomore in 2004 o___O

    me too...
    I've worked there for about 6 months already.
    the pay was pretty crappy during the 1st month -5.50 and hour
    but it upped to $6 after 3 months..still pretty crappy
    considering the place is only open from 4-7 three hour days.

    I'm 17..but I think you can work there when you're 15..+ or in high school.

    When I was younger like 16 or so i worked as a portrait artist, did painting like murals, then as an animator, and then in business and law.

    the important thing is just to get your foot in the door, you might want to look into internships as well.

    I am in dire need of a summer job.
    But I doubt anyone's willing to hire someone who hasn't even turned 16 yet.

    Actually, the Starbucks in this area hires at 15 1/2 years old + working permit. Which reminds me, I need to get a hold of one..
    i wanna work as a pharmacy technician. but here in california i need to take the test for that.

    Yeah, so far Starubucks and Barnes and Noble are my top choices. But smooglez, 15 1/2?? That is really young to work in a coffee shop environment.. And omg! I looooove Orange Julius, reminds me maybe working for bubble tea?

    i work at the swimming pool as a lifeguard in seattle. i just turned 16 a couple months ago

    starting wage is $12.55. image

    my friend is one of the lifeguard at the pool i go too. He's always feeling big since he's the lifeguard and his lifeguard jersey thingy looks the best. well, compare to the ones that my uncle are wearing. my uncles are lifeguard at the same pool.

    Well, over the summer i'll be taking my courses to be a lifeguard, but i would have to wait til i turn 16 so i can take NLS. During the days that i don't have courses, i'll probably be working as a pool monitor. I'm not sure what's the wage you get since i still haven't send in my application yet. I'm still waiting for my SIN(social insurance card) to arrive so i can fill in the spaces i have left. To be a pool monitor you have to have your Standard First-Aid and CPR-C. I think you have to be at least 15 or something like that. It's a pretty easy job, you just sit there and if anyone needs help then you are there.
