Different rules apply to farms, and individual States may have stricter rules.  From other contributors: Make a point of asking your adult relatives and friends if they can give you a job or know where you could get one.

Many people of that age got their first job at McDonald's or other fast-food restaurant.

A 14-year-old is someone without much experience or direct knowledge of most jobs and should therefore look for jobs that do not require experience, or where the employer is willing to train.
Depending on where you live, there may be age-related restrictions on various jobs.
  • Some ideas: fast food, library clerk, delivering newspapers (yes, you can make money doing it), possibly a gas station might let you run a cash register.
  • You could also start your own small business such as doing yard work or shoveling snow or delivering stuff on your bicycle.
  • Try a farm or get a paper route, or baby sitting
  • It depends on the State you live in. Try using the Google search form and typing in "At what age can a minor work and receive pay?"
  • If you are too young then you could work in a grocery store as a delivery boy, stocking shelves, etc. You could do "odd jobs" for neighbors like mowing their lawns, fixing fences, painting those fences, etc. You can baby-sit for neighbors and possibly put a few notices you've made up on lamp standards, etc., to advertise baby-sitting services. You can "dog walk." There are many people that have to leave their dogs at home and would love a dependable person to come in a walk their dog for good exercise.

Here is more input and advice:
  • I admire you for wanting to work at such a young age.
  • Don't get a job. Not at 14, once you start working you can never stop.
  • You could baby sit children. I don't do that even though I'm really good with them. I like to entertain them.
  • At fourteen, they're are plenty of Jobs, I am 15, and I started my first job at 14, at a McDonalds restaurant. You can also be a hostess for a restaurant, or even a bus boy. All minimum wage paying jobs, but jobs none the less.
  • Well I think you can get a job pushing grocery carts at the local grocery store..but of course it depends what store. I've also heard that you can get a job at price chopper (grocery store). But other than that I'm not sure. sorry
  • Depending on the state you live in, McDonald's and other fast food restaurants may let you work part time.
  • If you want to earn money and can't get a job with a business, be creative. What can you do? Mow lawns, babysit, yard work, paper route
  • Publix stores hire 14 yr old as baggers, Chic-fil-a hires 14 yr old for various positions, Taco Bell hires 14 year old, Kroger Hires 14 year old
  • Some states require a working permit for 14 and 15 yr old teenagers and others don't. There are some non-agricultural jobs that you can get. (i.e. grocery stores) It also depends on the employer. You should probably check out your state labor laws.
  • You can work at Dairy Queen
  • You can work at 14 as long as you have a workers permit which some schools provide or you can call (614) 644-2239 and websites are and for more info about it the law says you CAN work at certain places with it.
  • A typical 14 year old can get a job in very few places. But one place is Blockbuster. They pay anywhere from 9 to 12 dollars an hour. You can also get a job at Kroger at age 14, they pay pretty well too.
  • I answer this one, If you are 14 teen and you are looking for a job you can be a paperboy, babysit, work at fast food areas, supermarkets. Just to name a few, look around look in the phone book or newspaper call and ask is the best way to find a job. good luck.
  • Thanx for answering this question nobody could answer that for me. Now I got a job I work at Krogers and getting things I always wanted. Thank you!
  • Try mowing lawns
  • 14 is pretty young for most employers. Try shoveling snow, yard work, cleaning houses for neighbors, babysitting.

Otherwise maybe you could intern or volunteer with a company and then in a year or so they will trust you so much that they will give you a real job right away instead of the low end jobs most 16 year old get. Try picking up garbage for a construction company or answering phones for a non-profit organization.
  • You could always apply for a job at the movie theatres but you probably wouldn't get the part of selling tickets or letting people in cause they think you might try and sneak your friends in.
  • Look on the billboards at a nearby local shop, I did and now have a job as a waitress and babysit most Friday nights !
  • You can get a job at a Sno cone stand or any other small time business. I'm 13 and I got one that paid $300 a week and it was at a sno cone stand
  • Some family restaurants will hire for dishwasher/bus-boy/girl with parental consent.
  • He/she could shovel snow for people in the neighborhood. And in summer mow lawns, pull weeds.
  • Some places that sell ice cream/ice cream stands offer jobs for 14 yr old.
  • Supermarkets, especially bagging groceries. Many grocery stores in some areas hire at 14. For example, A&P, Publix, Kroger.
  • Fast food restaurants. Some fast food places hire at 14, e.g. McDonalds, Burger King, Wendy's, Subway. Fancy restaurants will not hire you as a waiter.
  • If you need a job ask your parents to mow grass, water plants, watch children, help out old or young people, paper boy, build things from stores, ask to put things in certain racks at like gas stations or any other place you might visit, you can be a sweeper at a hair place or and restaurant, fast food place.
  • You might be able to get a CPR license and get a summer job as a life guard.
  • I now work at a horse farm. I help at parties, I groom the horses, and I do other stuff. You should choose something you like. If you like animals then you could help out at a shelter.
  • I used to work at my church watching the younger children in the nursery.
  • I work at a local bowling alley, they have a room for parents to drop off their children while they bowl on leagues. The bowling alley pays me because this way they get more people to sign up for leagues. Sometimes parents will also tip.
  • Work at a "Pick-Your Own" Farm. You will get paid a decent amount. For example, in the fall you can go to apple orchards and offer to pick up the apples that have fallen on the ground. I used to do this and get paid 50 cents a basket. This may not sound like much but the basket fill up quick and it still leaves time for other part time jobs.
  • You can start your own worm beds and sell the worms for fishing.
  • Offer to help clean out peoples garage, barn, attic, basement, etc. They will pay you to clear out the clutter. If there's stuff worth saving that they want to get rid of you can then have a garage sale to earn even more money.
  • Look for stuff at garage sales that might sell good on eBay. Remember to bargain at the garage sale, the less you pay the more you will make when you resell the item.
  • Paperboy.
  • Babysitter.
  • Walk dogs or pet sitter.
  • Look around your local corner shops, farm shops, charity shops to see if they have any availabilities.
  • Camp counselor. Or look at summer camps and after school programs to work with children. Programs are always looking for extra help with the little ones at schools
  • You can, actually, get a job at 14 if you live in a state that allows it (California, for example). Most places aren't normally willing to hire 14 year olds, but present yourself to them professionally and you'll definitely impress them. For the child labor laws, just do a search for "[your state] child labor law" obviously plugging in [your state] with the state you live in.
  • Do work for your neighbors, e.g. lawn, landscaping, or cleaning out garages.
  • Some public libraries hire 14-year-old to re-shelve books. The pay is usually just above minimum wage. Also, during the summer, water parks like SplishSplash (on Long Island) hire 14-year-old.
  • you can work at a local pool. I (14 year old) am going to this summer as a concession stand worker. positions fill up fast! look in your local paper or civic center for applications or phone numbers.
  • If you live in an area where corn is grown, you can get a job detasseling for a few weeks out of the year. It's good money, but you have to get up early in the morning and work in very hot weather.
  • I'm 14 and employed in the fall and spring as a soccer referee, and in the summer as a Sno Cone Maker in the parking lot of the local recreation center. There are quite a few jobs for 14-year-old here.

serving as a playhouse patron in one of McDonalds i think is appropiate for 14 year olds! u just supervise children. and report any illegal avitivity to the manager.
