Does anyone know of some big franchises that hire at 15, or if you live in Contra Costa County, any stores around that hire? I need a job for Summer, and I can't seem to find one.

is it legal to work at 15 in your state? i know here you have to be 16 in most places (depending on the job requirements), and then you still have to have a work permit.

Around here the only major employer that hires at 15 is Weggmanns.

Hell, growing up on a farm the only work permit needed was my Dad telling it was time to get my arse out of bed. I was driving tractor, etc. at 9, moving sprinkler pipes as soon as I was able too, and when we moved to Alaska when I was 14, I was commercial fishing in the summers and working at my Dad's friends transmission shop removing/rebuilding/installing transmissions in the winter. The farm didn't pay too well (I got to eat and sleep in my Dad's house, farming SUX!!!) but the fishing did, and the transmission shop. When I turned 16 the shop was cool because I could use the shop to work on my 68 elcamino :waytogo: .

Im 15, Contra Costa is in Nor Cal. I can get a work permit, easy with my grades right now. My local field doesn't give you cash. If you ref one game your next game is free, a free case of 2000 paintballs, and free lunch. I ref when I can but I need money!

I was actually going to check out the local Home Depot to see if they will hire at 15. If not I might have to work for my dad at his deli. (He leaves the house at 4AM)

I started working on my family farm since my legs could reach the clutch on the tractor :D Ah, how wrong it is for a 12 year old to be driving one of those around.

As for suggestions really all I can think of is maybe looking for landscaping companies, they can usually hire on some summer help to push wheelbarrows/mow lawns/prune hedges, that sort of stuff. Landscapers tend to pay well too. I'm sure you could avoid the permit type papers if they paid you 'under the table' just make sure you don't go over your foot with a lawmower or else there might be some implications! Good luck with the job hunt.

Basically the only way to get a job when you're under 16 in Mass is if your parents own or know someone who owns a businesses. I think you can technically work with a permit at 14 or 15 or something, but nobody hires you because its such a huge liability.
