What are some jobs for a 16 year old? - January 11th 2012, 12:04 AM

I don't want to work at safeway, so I don't know what companies hire 16 year olds?

Restaurants will typically hire at that age. Look around there for a job.

Then you don't really have many options besides retail, honestly. There aren't many places that hire high school kids.



Sorry I couldn't be there, I was tied to a rocking chair.

I agree with this poster, and if you live in the United States you can't be picky when it comes to getting a job especially as a high school student.

If you wan't to do something different, Email a few local companies around town asking if they are willing to hire a High-School level person at an Entry level position. I know when I was in High School, I worked Construction, Had a Web Design job, and even worked in a law office answering phones and cleaning up/organizing after school every day.

You're limited, I'm afraid...you can try your local library/bookstores, they usually hire younger people.

Teens are having more trouble finding jobs. You can't really be picky.
