where can i get a job that hires 17 year olds? i applied to a burger king and mcdonalds but haven't heard back
just trying to make a lil cash before summer ends
I hit up local Chinese and Pizza shops, see if they need delivery boys, but I'd probably stay away from chains like Papa Johns, Dominoes, etc (Not because they suck working for, which they might, I'm just assuming they probably hire 18+ drivers for legal reasons). I'm sure you could find a spot that would give you some hours making deliveries, if you live in the city find a real local spot and you could just bike the deliveries.
Since it's summer, you could get in touch with some Landscaping companies, see if they need any extra help, pool cleaning services, etc.
I'd look into local temp jobs for Catering too actually. I started doing that for some extra cash this past week, worked 8 hours at an event and made 16/hr under the table. And I know they allow teens under 18 to work there because there was a good handful of girls who were still in high school working as waiters at the event which seemed like a pretty easy job, I unfortunately lugged around 45 pound bags of ice in the sun the entire time with another guy my age, which sucked. But, like I said, services like that do employ kids under 18, you just have too look for them. Hit up craigslist or your local paper for help wanted.
Edit: It also might not even be because you're under 18, I re-read that and you said you were just looking to make some cash before the summer ends, which means your availability is only a few months, most places, even fast food chains (unless really really short staffed) aren't going to hire someone who's only able to work a couple of months. Either way, good luck bud.
