From other contributors:
Make a point of asking your adult relatives and friends if they can give you a job or know where you could get one.
Many people of that age got their first job at McDonald's or other fast-food restaurant.
A 14-year-old is someone without much experience or direct knowledge of most jobs and should therefore look for jobs that do not require experience, or where the employer is willing to train.
Depending on where you live, there may be age-related restrictions on various jobs.
Some ideas: fast food, library clerk, delivering newspapers (yes, you can make money doing it), possibly a gas station might let you run a cash register.
You could also start your own small business such as doing yard work or shoveling snow or delivering stuff on your bicycle.
Try a farm or get a paper route, or baby sitting
It depends on the State you live in. Try using the Google search form and typing in "At what age can a minor work and receive pay?"
If you are too young then you could work in a grocery store as a delivery boy, stocking shelves, etc. You could do "odd jobs" for neighbors like mowing their lawns, fixing fences, painting those fences, etc. You can baby-sit for neighbors and possibly put a few notices you've made up on lamp standards, etc., to advertise baby-sitting services. You can "dog walk." There are many people that have to leave their dogs at home and would love a dependable person to come in a walk their dog for good exercise.
Here is more input and advice:
I admire you for wanting to work at such a young age.
Don't get a job. Not at 14, once you start working you can never stop.
You could baby sit children. I don't do that even though I'm really good with them. I like to entertain them.
At fourteen, they're are plenty of Jobs, I am 15, and I started my first job at 14, at a McDonalds restaurant. You can also be a hostess for a restaurant, or even a bus boy. All minimum wage paying jobs, but jobs none the less.
Well I think you can get a job pushing grocery carts at the local grocery store..but of course it depends what store. I've also heard that you can get a job at price chopper (grocery store). But other than that I'm not sure. sorry
Depending on the state you live in, McDonald's and other fast food restaurants may let you work part time.
If you want to e********y and can't get a job with a business, be creative. What can you do? Mow lawns, babysit, yard work, paper route
Publix stores hire 14 yr old as baggers, Chic-fil-a hires 14 yr old for various positions, Taco Bell hires 14 year old, Kroger Hires 14 year old
Some states require a working permit for 14 and 15 yr old teenagers and others don't. There are some non-agricultural jobs that you can get. (i.e. grocery stores) It also depends on the employer. You should probably check out your state labor laws.
You can work at Dairy Queen
You can work at 14 as long as you have a workers permit which some schools provide or you can call (614) 644-2239 and websites are www.youthrules.dol.gov and www.com.state.oh.us for more info about it the law says you CAN work at certain places with it.
A typical 14 year old can get a job in very few places. But one place is Blockbuster. They pay anywhere from 9 to 12 dollars an hour. You can also get a job at Kroger at age 14, they pay pretty well too.
I answer this one, If you are 14 teen and you are looking for a job you can be a paperboy, babysit, work at fast food areas, supermarkets. Just to name a few, look around look in the phone book or newspaper call and ask is the best way to find a job. good luck.
Thanx for answering this question nobody could answer that for me. Now I got a job I work at Krogers and getting things I always wanted. Thank you!
Try mowing lawns
14 is pretty young for most employers. Try shoveling snow, yard work, cleaning houses for neighbors, babysitting.
Otherwise maybe you could intern or volunteer with a company and then in
