Yeah, supermarkets, fast food...one of my friends works at a jewelry store.
Actually most of my friends make money illegally when I think about it.

Lifeguarding if you're certified. Easy job, great money. Depends on the place though, some only hire 18+.

Mow lawns, clean pools, etc. Just think about what you're good at. I'm a swimmer, I teach swim lessons for my team's learn to swim program.

At 16 you should be fine at blockbuster, I think you have to be 16 to work at the till so you should be fine

Lifeguarding is a viable option if you're willing to go through the classes. Most offer about $10-$11 an hour for pay. I'm thinking about teaching swimming at a local swim club since swimming is something I do everyday. I think it's $11.50 an hour which isn't too bad and you don't do too much either.
