Ok so i am going out to get job applications for the first time...?
Hi im 18, I will be walking around my city going to places and asking for applications, my biggest concerns are 1)How should i dress? I will most likely be going to places like McDonalds, Jack in the box, Walmart, and some local stores. I plain dress shirt with jeans ok? 2)When i walk in how should i ask for the application? Should i ask for the manager and ask for an application directly from him/her? Should i shake the persons hand after i turn in the application and introduce myself, even if it's just a cashier? What should i talk to him/her about? 3)Should i take the applications home and fill them out or would it be better to fill them out on the spot? I don't have a car so i think the latter would be better. 4)How would i go about asking for applications for small family business in the area? Do the hire people that they don't know, or only friends/family. Ex. Restaurants, Ice cream shops Unfortunately i don't have very many friends so i can't network for a job like most people, so i'm stuck doing it the old fashioned way.

Your idea of dress sounds appropriate. Black is better than blue for jeans. Don't ask for the manager ask at customer service or in the case of McD's go to the person behind the register. Fill it out there then ask for the manager. As far as family owned it doesn't hurt to ask.
