It depends on where you live. Most states require that you have a "work permit" to work and can show that you are able to attend school and work.

Call your local court house and ask them what the requirements are. .
Having had my own 3 children start jobs while Freshmen in high school, I can say that many factors play a part of the job hunting experience. First, if you live in a rural area, you might try working for individual ranchers, homeowners, etc. (painting interior/exterior houses, fences; handing out flyers for a local small company; babysitting pets while owners are on vacation; make a property store-front on the road with crafts/foods/projects that you've made etc....be creative). However, if you're a city person, you might try (the admin. office at a Elementary/Jr.Hi/Hi School office; volunteer for the local Parks and Recreation day-time activities[they may even pay you]; typing for a Dr. or Dentist; pruning/mowing/removing trash from neighbors yard; running grocery errands for seniors; photography for birthdays & special events; etc.) Just remember, regular fast food co's. and discount retail stores are worried about their liability until you're 16, so... the rest is up to you...show you have the desire to work and before you know it, you will have people contacting you. .
Bagging or stocking job at a local grocery store. Many grocers will hire baggers that are 15. .
Fast food restaurant, e.g. McDonald's. .
If you are able to work and do not want to work at fast food restaurants, try motels, daycare and lawn services in your phone book. .
Go to a neighbors house and ask if you can help around the house if you do a good job they will recommend you with friends but be courteous and friendly at all times! :) .
A little ice cream place. .
I know that a son of a friend of mine, that was your age (15), put an ad in the little nickel paper (weekly ads) expressing his interest in earning monies. He received several responses from the ad. .
Try looking at a simple, independent local store rather than a chain. When you turn 16 you will at least have some experience which is good. .
A farm. .
If you know computers you could try programming or being a Web developer, or you could do data processing. .
I got a job in a pub in the kitchen when i was 14, washing up and things. Don't be scared to ask it doesn't get you anywhere! .
They might be a little too young for a job but they might be able to work at a fast-food restaurant. .
You can try the company Chick-fil-a .
You could find a job at the YMCA .
Yes, you can. I'm not sure about the variety of jobs you can get, though. One of my friends is only 14 and she works at Starbucks, so there's one possibility. Since most places start hiring at 16, what I would do is just go around mowing lawns, washing cars, or walking dogs etc. for a decent amount of money. If you do it right, that money can add up very quickly. .
Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's. Any fast-food restaurants. .
And local shops that are run by big companies. . (MORE)
