Good luck I work in retail and we start hiring those that are 17 and older. Which I don't understand since you can drive at 16. You are probably going to have to stick to McDonalds or places like that for now thats what I did when I was that age. Good Luck and happy birthday
Happy belated, Shawn. I didn't actually have a job until my first year back from college, and that was Dairy Queen. I also worked in college at Barnes and Noble. As boring as the latter was, I would recommend any sales position over any food service. But in this economy, just take what you can get and make the most of it.
