My local Borders is hiring. It might just be for hollidays, I'm not sure. But I am in desperate need of a job. Anyone here work there? What's it like?

I haven't worked at a book shop, but I was thinking about applying to Waterstones simply for the staff discount a couple of years ago. Books are expensive

Ok, well I THINK you only have to be 16. I'm gonna apply. My many tries at Best Buy and Circuit City have brought me jack s***.

I`m pretty sure that it`s 18.

Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

Hopefully not. I need a job. There is gas to be paid for and gear to be bought!

you usually have to be 18 unless you can convince them to hire you for stocking only, almost all positions where you handle money require you to be 18.

I tried applying at a Waldenbooks (part of Borders) they told me you have to be 18 because they sell porn.

Not here in the UK. Most shop jobs are for 16+, unless alcohol/cigarettes/other over 18 products are involved.

Yeah different places have different rules, I think it's largely a liability thing the company doesn't want to have to deal with though, same reason why you usually have to be 18 to be a cook or any sort of driver.

Well a lot of places here won't hire underage people for anything that job that requires a lot of cash transactions. State law maybe.

So I guess I'll check it out. Any other ideas? I'm good with gas for now because the rents are paying while I actively look for a job. I know, I'm lucky

I'd say GC, but there's the whole having to be 18 thing.

I just don't want a job that sucks large reproductive organs.

Where I live most places hire under 18, so being underage doesn't really mean the job has to suck.
