Will anyone hire me when I'm 14?

I need a job. but im only 14.. would any one hire me??

Answer #1

You’ll have to ck the laws in your area - may require a permit..some ideas:

Baby sitting (only for persons that are trustworthy) Chores for trustworthy neighbors Paper route Dog walking Grocery store Lemonade stand Paint House number on street curb House sitting Message Delivery Pharmacy Delivery City, County, State and other government-run Youth Programs Vacation and Tourism spots Hotels/Resorts Parks and recreational areas Swimming pools, golf courses and campground facilities Day and summer camps Amusement/Theme/Entertainment parks Museums, Zoos and Aquariums Airport concession firms Childcare and Eldercare providers Health care facilities Business services (including) Moving and packing companies Pool and spa companies Lawn care and other maintenance companies Construction companies Movie theaters Fast food and restaurant establishments Ice cream parlors, juice bars Clothing and accessory stores Newspaper / Magazine Distribution

Legal Considerations: Not many people are aware that they break the law when they work without fulfilling the basic requirements that involve teenage work. So let us see, what this is actually. Note this is not an exhaustive list and hence for accuracy you should check with your local guardian or legal advisor (at school or at any social center). Also be aware the each State & Country may have different laws that cover teenagers working conditions.

Timings: Teenagers below 14 years old are usually not encouraged to work in offices. For those above 14 and above they should not be working at night. The legal hours are any time between 7 am to 7 PM ‘ of course ensuring that school is taken care of. Those between 16-19 years of age can be free to work as much and as long as they please. However, girls should always be wary and careful when working nights as crime increases at night. Work areas: Teenagers may work anywhere they can be engaged with the exception of places where they could endanger themselves or others, such as construction sites, repair sites or garages, chemical and other types of processing, mining, messenger jobs, warehousing, adult clubs and bars. Social security number: There are places where teens need a social security number to receive payment; Taxes: Most of the time teen jobs do not involve tax payments and need not have any dedication in the paychecks. However, you need to consult the local IRS to ascertain this. Each state and country has its own set of rules and what is valid in one may not be in another. Do not take anything for granted. Keep in mind that legal aspects are serious matters and you do need complication with the law. Check and be sure you fulfill all the legal formalities applicable for teenagers before you even apply for work. Ask the help of a responsible adult, such as your parents, teachers or relatives and seek out the correct answers - no such thing as a stupid question.

Wish you the best and always be alert, putting safety first !!

Answer #4

yes, my first job was at fourteen. What you can do is go to your school counselor and get a work permit, once you’ve done that, ask for a list of employers who would hire you at 14. I know Coldstone creamery hires 14 year olds, but I dont know what it is you want to do, so you’ll have to talk to your counselor for more options.

Answer #5
