    I started working at a kitchen doing dish washing at 15. Some stores will hire you to be a floor clerk also just cant work register. Anything that pays under the table works also.. dunno if you wanna get into that tho.

    I worked for a carnival setting up games at 15, but it was under the table. A lot of places have strict laws about the kind of jobs anyone under 16 or 17 can do. It depends on the location.

    if youre looking for a summer job a lot of construction companies will hire yonuger guys as "gophers" ex: (go get my hammer, go re-stack those 2x4s, etc.) ...if you do end up going that route i hope you are comfortable with coarse profanity, hazing, and the occasional racial slur :D

    A lot will probably depend on where you live, restrictions in the area, types of businesses, etc.

    Wait until you are 16. There is basically nothing at 15.

    Some grocery stores and fast food places will hire you at 15. I knew a lot of guys that mowed lawns to make money.

    I think my brother bagged groceries at 15.

    A lot has to do with the state laws where you are at too.

    Do you live around a lot of older folks? You could pick up some odd jobs in your neighborhood if there are older people who physically can't maintain their properties but can't really afford to pay a professional. They'd usually be willing to pay you to do odd jobs around their house/property.

    My brother's 14 and he does this for our elderly neighbor. Mows the lawn, waters it, etc. and he gets some money here and there.
