Hey guys. I'm 17 and I am looking for a job. I've already applied at Target and Subway. I have long hair, so it might be an issue.

Any ideas as to where i should apply? I live in San Diego, CA and am completely clean of all drugs, so testing is not a problem.

Don't work at Subway. Worst experience ever. The work you do is worth 3 times what you get paid (minimum wage). Hell, at least it's 8 dollars now, not $6.25 when I worked for minimum wage.

Just look in the yellow pages or the newspaper for something. If it doesn't work out, you don't have to stay there forever. You have to experiment to find something you really like.

Is it coinkidinks that I worked for Vector/Cutco as well? Nope. I tried it all. There is no greedier/unsatisfactory job than selling knives. You feel like a used up tool at the end of the day.

Can you think of any other places? I'more focused on just making some money. My parents are bugging me about bein ungrateful, so I am looking for a job to get me out of the house as much as possible. Also, not too many places are willing to hire a guy with long hair.

A good job I landed in was teaching at a tutoring center. If you are good at math or english, go look for a local tutoring center that caters to elementary and middle schoolers. It's a satisfying job and pays well.

One of my good friends worked at Mervyns for two years. He hates retail so much, it's not funny. Don't go into retail if you want to maintain your sanity.

That's where you are wrong my friend. It depends on the franchise. some franchisees will hire you with long hair. My friend has hair to the middle of his back and works at the subway like a mile from my house.

Construction. I'm a scrawny bastard and I worked on groundworks over the summer. Spent two weeks doing grunt lifting etc work then learned off all the plans etc and learned all the health and safety/ traffic control legislation and got a job as a manager, best thing ever. Good pay, rewarding and responsible work and you get recognition for it.

Subway isnt too bad to work at. I got about $9.50 AUD. You just need to learn what goes on what sandwich. Fast.
I work at maccas and get around $10 an hour. I think.

And some subways will hire you even if you have long hair and piercings all over your face.
Depends on the manager really.

Fast food is good to start on. But as soon as your 18 get the hell out of it and go work in a bar
