Should I try to get a job? (I'm 14)?

Category: Other


So I live by a store and you have to be at least 14 to work there.

it's just a normal grocery store.

I need money to buy things for myself. (school supplies, books, ect.)

I also make a lot of things like plush toys, plush animal hats, and I make things out of clay.

I need money to buy my own art supplies and over things, and I want to earn my money so I'm more responsible.

should I try to get a job?

It's worth a shot! Just make sure your parents approve and you can handle a job right now. Good luck :)

Mine, please?



I say don't bother because just because the minimum age is 14 does not mean they will actually hire you. You probably won't be able to get a job until 16.
