Default Jobs for 16 year old??

Hi doodes

I just turned 16 and school is out for the summer, so I was wondering what kinda jobs could I get? I wanted to work somewhere like blockbusters but I don't think they will if I'm under 18.

thanks

I got hired as a Service tech at 16, so you might be able to if your into that kinda stuff. Otherwise it's pretty much fast food or bagging groceries.

Don't aim high at 16, look in supermarkets, fast food places, corner shops, markets etc.

I recently got a job in Sainsburys as a stock deployment manager

No it's not, stock deployment management is basically, when deliveries come in, it's my job, as well as some others, to enter that data into a computer, then to deploy it to certain parts of the store.. we tell staff where it goes really. Far from shelf stacking. I've had experience with management, which is why I got the job.

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.

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.
