Where should a teen work?
I am sixteen and I am currently looking for a job. I currently work as a busboy at a breakfast restaurant but do not like waking up early on weekends. And i am only able to get 8 hours a week. The atmosphere doesn't help b/c my boss is really mean and yells, and i am the only person under 25 who works there. Any suggestions of where i should work?

Work with your hands - painter, laborer, landscaping. You will make good money and will have great stories when you are older.

If you can swim, get lifeguard certified. You're pretty much guaranteed work when you want it because there are ALWAYS short staffed pools.

You should try being a life guard or swim teacher. i was one when i was 15 and it was one of the best jobs i ever had. they are sensative to the fact that you are only 15 and are generally nice people. it also pays extremely well and you get a lot of hours if you teach lessons.
