Are you under 16 years of age and looking for work? Many 14 and 15-year-olds have reasons for wanting to work. You might want to start saving for college early.

Or, you might want to start now to save for buying a car when you’re 16. Whatever your reason, know that there are opportunities out there for kids to make money.

Working at a young age can give kids many benefits, such as:

  • Learning about the responsibility of work
  • Understanding the value of earning money
  • Learning to give, save, spend and budget
  • Earning money for goals such as college or a car purchase

There are many online employers and across the country who will hire workers as young as 14, and we’ve got a list of 25 of them below, as well as businesses that teens can start.

However, first it’s important to understand the rules surrounding jobs for kids under 16. Workers who are 14 or 15 have different employment laws than those who are 16 and up.

Labor Law Information

There are some things you need to know if you’re going to try and get a job with a company and you’re under 16. The federal government has child labor laws that dictate when and how you can work.

Here are the government rules for working if you’re under 16 years old. There is a law in place in the U.S. called the Fair Labor Standards Act.

This act helps protect workers from unfair labor practices by employers. There are specific rules in this act that apply to workers under 16.

The first rule is that 14 is the minimum age for employment.

This rule does not apply in certain situations where there is no minimum age, such as:

  • Babysitting
  • Delivering newspapers
  • Working at a business your parents own (as long as it is a non-manufacturing/non-hazardous job)
  • Any work that involves theatrical employment, such as acting in commercials or movies

If you are working in any of these capacities, you can do so even if you’re under the age of 14.

Number of Hours You Can Work

There are also limits on the number of hours and the times of days 14- and 15-year-olds can work.

The Fair Labor Standards Act says 14 and 15-year-olds may only work:

  • 3 hours per day on school days
  • 18 hours total in any given school week
  • 8 hours per day on non-school days
  • 40 hours per week maximum on non-school weeks

Also, 14- and 15-year-olds can only work between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. This limit changes to 9:00 p.m. from June 1 through Labor Day.

To find out more about the laws regarding working as a 14 or 15-year-old, see the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) government webpage.

How Much Should You Get Paid?

What you will get paid as a 14 or 15-year-old worker depends on a number of factors. As an employee, you must get paid at least minimum wage.

The federal minimum wage is currently set at $7.25 per hour. All states must pay at least this much to workers.

However, there are different minimum wage rules for youth. The FLSA states that youth under 20 years of age can be paid a minimum wage of $4.25 for the first 90 calendar days of work.

After the first 90 calendar days of work, they must be paid at least the federal minimum wage.

However, some states have their own higher minimum wage laws. In fact, most states have a higher minimum wage than what FLSA requires.

Two states, Georgia and Wyoming, have a lower minimum wage: $5.15 per hour. However, employers subject to FLSA rules must pay at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour.

Homeschooled?

If you’re homeschooled and have some flexibility in your work schedule, that can be a plus if you’re younger and looking for a job.

We spoke with one restaurant owner who said that some restaurants and other venues like to hire homeschooled kids because they often have more flexible schedules.

Some can change their school schedules so they can work during the day, and that’s a big plus.

Here are some places that might hire 14 and 15-year-olds for work.

Note that since all Chick-Fil-A’s are independently owned and operated, wages and hiring ages may vary.

12. McDonald’s

I’m guessing there’s probably a McDonald’s restaurant near you. They have over 14,000 store locations in the United States alone.

There are 26 Six Flags amusement parks and water parks in North America. You can work there as young as 14 years old.

Job positions vary by location and season. Contact your local Six Flags for more information. If you don’t have a Six Flags park in your area, contact your own local amusement park or water-park.

We have an amusement park where I live. It’s not a Six Flags park, but I do know they hire kids as young as 14 to work there. Most larger metropolitan areas have at least one amusement park or water park.

Check with Local Indoor Entertainment Venues

Many cities and towns also have indoor entertainment venues, such as:

  • Rock climbing centers
  • Trampoline parks
  • Indoor water parks
  • Bowling centers
  • Arcades
  • Laser tag centers

And more. Most are independently owned and not chains. I’d encourage you to call your local entertainment venues and see what their minimum hiring age is.

When I checked with local entertainment businesses where I live, several were hiring kids as young as 14. These venues are kid-friendly types of businesses. Therefore, I think they like hiring younger teens.

Now, let’s look at another income-producing option for 14- and 15-year-olds: starting your own business.

Businesses You Can Start at Age 14

From our local North Houston research, we found the starting pay to be competitive for neighborhood services.

SERVICE*STARTING PAY
Babysitting$10.00/hr
Doggie poop scooper$10/house a week
Life guard$9.50/hr
Mother’s-helper$8.00/hr

Maybe, instead of working for a traditional employer, you’ve considered starting your own business. There’s no reason you need to wait until adulthood to become a successful entrepreneur.

There are many benefits to earning income via your own business as opposed to working for someone else.

Here are a few of those benefits:

  • You control your income
  • You’ll get fantastic experience in all aspects of running a business
  • Gain confidence as you experience the ups and downs of business ownership
  • You’ll be able to target the type of clients you want to serve
  • You can control how big your business grows — or doesn’t grow

Starting a business is hard work, but it also allows for a vast array of experience. You’ll learn what works — and what doesn’t — for the type of business you run.

There are many invaluable life experiences to be had through entrepreneurship. Maybe now is the time for you to start having those experiences.

Here is a short list of business ideas you can implement right now to begin earning money on your own schedule.

Babysitting

Are there lots of younger children in your neighborhood or your family/friend circle? Why not start a babysitting business?

Of course, there are skills you should have if you want to be a babysitter. You should be good with children and like caring for them.

You also have to be mature and responsible. The most successful babysitters are the ones that both parents and kids appreciate.

Parents prefer babysitters who are disciplined with their kids and make responsibility a priority. Kids prefer babysitters who will interact and play with them.

You can advertise your babysitting business via social media, on a neighborhood app, or by sending out emails. You could also hand out flyers to neighborhood homes.

Spread the word by telling friends of your parents and family members you’re looking for jobs. Set your hourly wage beforehand so you know what to tell parents about your rates.

Many babysitters charge a higher rate for babysitting multiple children, too. If you like kids, this could be a great business for you.

Pet Sitting

Maybe you prefer caring for dogs and cats over caring for kids. Why not start a pet sitting business? Many pet owners go out of town for vacation or for work purposes. You could offer your services to care for their pets.

It’s important to note that some pet owners will only need you to check in on their pet once or twice a day. For instance, cats can stay home alone as long as they’re fed regularly.

However, dog owners may need you to take their dog into your home to watch it. This is especially true if they’re going out of town.

You’ll want to get your parents’ permission first before you offer that type of service. Choose your rates and advertise the same way you would for babysitting.

Dog Walking

Being a dog walker can be another good business idea. If there are lots of dogs in your neighborhood, you could offer to walk them.

Set your hourly rate and advertise to dog owners near you. If the dogs get along with other dogs, you could walk three, four or more dogs at a time. This will increase your income.

If you are good with dogs and can be responsible when walking them, this might be the business for you.

To make it easier, check out Rover which is an app that will connect you people that need their dog to be walked.

Lawn Mowing

Do you like doing yard work? How about starting a lawn mowing business? You’d have to get your parents’ permission to use their lawn mower first. Or you could buy your own.

Advertise to neighbors by handing out flyers. Offer to take this tedious chore off of their hands. Make some money in the process.

If you live in a northern state where there’s snow in the winter, you could offer snow shoveling services as a part of your business, too.

Mobile Car Wash

One chore people have a hard time finding time for is cleaning their car. You could start a mobile car washing business and help them out. Here’s how that would work.

You would go to each client’s home to wash their car on weekends or after they get home from work. This is always a nice benefit for clients.

First, you’d clean the inside; remove garbage, vacuum it out and wash the inside of the windows. Then, you’d use the client’s hose and water, your soap, bucket and rags and clean the outside of the car.

Be sure to bring towels to dry it off when you’re done, too.

Choose an hourly rate that ensures you make enough money to cover work time and travel time. Advertise your services on a neighborhood app, via flyers, or by asking family or friends for business.

House Cleaning

Are you good at cleaning house? If so, why not start a house cleaning business? You could go to a client’s home and do dusting, vacuuming and light clean up.

Or, if you’re great at organization, you could work with a client to organize their garage, basement or other parts of their home.

Choose an hourly rate and try to give a quote based on how long it will take to you do the job.

Mother’s Helper

A mother’s helper is a little bit different from a babysitter. A mother’s helper usually works when a parent is home. They’ll do various tasks as they help the parent care for the children.

They might clean up the house or do dishes. Or, they might play games with the children while the mom works from home. Each client will likely have you do different tasks so they can focus on their tasks.

This can be a good job for people who like kids but may not be comfortable being alone with them.

Task Runner

If you have a bicycle and live in close proximity to local businesses, why not start a business as a task runner. You could do minor errands and tasks for local residents, such as:

  • Small shopping trips
  • Trips to the post office or library
  • Small cleaning or other home tasks
  • Short delivery tasks

Or others. Just make a list of tasks you’re willing to do, and list your services on a neighborhood app or hand out flyers to neighbors.

Be sure to have your prices set beforehand, or state that you’ll give a price based on the task.

Doggie Doo Scooper

Do you have a lot of dog owners in your neighborhood? Why not offer to make a weekly job out of cleaning doggie doo from their yards. The only tools you’ll need are plastic bags and a poop scooper.

I’d be willing to bet at least a few of your neighbors would pay someone to take that job off their hands.

These are just a few ideas of what you can do if you want to work at your own business. If you’d rather work for yourself than work for someone else, think about entrepreneurship.

Summary

If you’re under age 16, there are plenty of viable work opportunities for you. Just be sure you — and your employer — are following state and federal guidelines for youth workers.

If you’re under 16 and interested in working to earn money, consider the jobs listed above. Each type of job will give you valuable skills and experience.

Did you work a job when you were under 16? Or are you currently under 16 and working? If so, share your experiences with us on Facebook.

  1. Hey Laurie,

    I like how you suggest ways to get a job AND start a business.

    In my opinion, if someone young decides they don’t want to start a business, working as a waiter or waitress is the next best option. This way, you can earn commission (tips) based on your performance. This teaches kids how better quality work can earn them more money!

    • Getting a job at a young age may seem easy but it really isn’t. I have been looking for a jobs for weeks now and I’m starting to grow very tired. I got so close to getting a job at chick fil a. I did a interview and everything and today I found out the they gave another candidate the job. Disappointed, yes I am. But giving up hope, no I am not. I am very mature for my age, hardworking, out going, but trying to get my first job is hard. I’ve looked everywhere put in plenty of applications and much more I’m trying very hard.

      • It’s hard to get a job at any age for sure! But have the motivation that you seem to have can make a world of difference, so keep it up!

      • I feel the same way I have called 3 areas near me and applied for them and they said they would call me to let me know wether or not they would give me the job getting a job at 14 is very hard I applied at 2 different chick fil a’s because it’s been 4 weeks since I applied at the first one I’ve been trying for so long I’ve called so many places and this pandemic is not helping my job search.

        • Just a heads up, these places will hire 14 year olds, however you are not likely to get a job. Plus you have to apply for a workers permit, which is not necessary at 15, but is required at 14.

          • It is not required at 14, but some places won’t , or cannot hire people without their workers permit.

    • Yes it does very much, I am a 14 year old whos trying to find work and I lived with my dad most my life not caring about anything then I moved in with my mom and i was poor last year and that put a number on me. idk what other peoples reason are for money but the most important part is save all you can because ive been looking for a job for months and still yet to have found one hiring 14 year olds so when you get a chance to make money dont push it aside you might never be able to make it again

I am very mature for my age so it’s a blessing from God to do this work early! This will change your life like crazy(Trust Me!

          • Great Question Emily, I trade stocks off of Etrade and make about $350 every week off that alone. And as for my business I have a international team, you really just have to call around and be good with people, that’s what this is about! Are you thinking about owning a business Emily?

    • It is possible that a restaurant won’t hire below the age of sixteen for safety reasons. For example, if the open position requires handling dangerous materials, such as hot grease, they may not hire someone younger. The good news it that there are still other avenues for you to make money. We have several posts on our website about how teens can make money. Check them out. I hope they help.

    • It’s the same way for me I live in a college town and they only hire at 16-18 minimum around here.

    • Not every restaurant will hire a 14 yo, but that doesn’t man that some don’t. Matter of fact, I am 14, and I have a job at a restaurant. (not a fast food one)

      • You do not need experience to detassle corn- it was my first job more than 2 decades ago when I was 13 and I did not even know there was a such thing and lived in the city. Back then, my grandma dropped me off at a local Burger King where the bus would pick up all us kids that were detasseling corn. It was a pretty decent gig- definitely some work- but more money than my 13 year old self had ever seen! As long as you live in a state where there are plenty of corn fields (like Indiana), detasseling corn will always be an option!

    • You could try advertising this to friends, family, or neighbors with pets that need extra care when they are working in the evening, weekends, or on trips, etc. Try giving them one experience free and if they like your services, ask that they consider you again for a fee. You can also ask for referrals and see if they will fill out a testimonial form that you create with questions about their experience. Then you can advertise to others with references and build your business. This is just one idea. I wish you success!

    • I have no idea. It is up to each individual employer to decide how much to pay and it can change at any given time. It also depends on your previous job experience and the demographic area you live in. The best way to find out is to apply or contact the ones you are interested in. Good luck!

  12. Hi, I’m 13 and I need a job as soon as possible. I want to work somewhere, though. I wouldn’t like to be a dog walker or a pet sitter or baby sitter. I want to work or own my own company. Is this possible?

    • While there are ways you can make money at the age of 13, your options are limited by your age. As you get older you will have more money making opportunities open up for you. However, in the meantime, I suggest you keep searching for ways you can make money. You never know. You just might find the perfect thing.

  13. I mean no disrespect, but this is false information. McDonald’s hires at 16, and most of these places hire at 16 everywhere for a franchise rule.

    • My understanding is that it can actually vary by franchise and also by location. There are places that employ 14 year olds, although at times there are certain job duties they can’t perform (think working with very hot grease or fryers, etc.).

  14. My name is Landon. I live in Florissant, Missouri. I’m 14 years old and I’m looking for work of about 18 hours a week after school. I’m a hard worker, dependable, and have transportation. If anyone is looking for an honest, hard worker, please contact me. Thanks. Landon Perry.

    • Unfortunately, that’s not how this works, Landon. To find a job you need to use the information and links found in this post. Good luck!

    • That just depends on the atmosphere, employees, and job duties at each business. You could always try it out and then leave if it doesn’t work out.

  15. Hi, my names Jenni. I’m looking for a job so I can help out my parents, save up for the future, and put money toward adopting a dog. I’m 14 years old in November, and it’s been hard finding a place that will hire me because of my age. If you have any comments that will help me find a new job, please reply. Thanks.

    • I think it’s great that you are trying to help out your parents as well as make money for the future and your other goals. Try using the links and ideas in this post. In addition, we have other posts on this site that can help kids and teens to make money.

  16. I’m 14 and want to start making some money on my own. My mom suggested the Albertson’s that is super close to us. Do you know if Albertson’s will hire 14 year old’s?

    • I do not know that answer. You should try going to Albertsons.com to see if you can find the answer. If you don’t, you can either email and ask them directly, or check with that nearby Albertson’s to find out the answer. If you go into the store, ask to talk to their Human Resources manager. Good luck!

  17. I’m 14 and looking for a job, but I want to work more than just 3 hours on a school day. Do you know of a way to get around that?

  21. I am 14 and I want to have a part time job to earn money and save it for college and I think this website is a good idea for teens who want to have a part time job.

  22. I am 14 years old in 9th grade and i want to find a way to make cash to save up for college and help people in need.

  23. I’m only 13, but I am interested in getting a job at either a retail store or a fast-food place near me. I found this post useful, and although I am not able to get a real job just yet, I will remember these places for the future. I was reading through the comments and I thought it was really great how you respond to every one of them, and it seems like your actually quite passionate about what you do here online, so I encourage you to continue to do so.

  24. I’m 15 and I’m trying to make money for college. I’m in 9th grade and I’m ready to do anything for money

  25. I am 14 looking for some of the jobs that are near me, and I couldn’t find anything except for Mcdonalds, and Dairy Queen I really don’t wan’t to do that cause I am a little shy about those things, but I like kids so I could baby sit, but I live an isolated area so its kinda hard along with me moving hear only a few years ago. I would like some help. How can I figure this out?

  26. I’m 14 and planning on getting a job, but I feel I would look way out of place among much older looking co-workers. Also, even though many places can hire teens at 14, are they actually willing to do so or is it very rare that a 14 year gets hired.

  27. Great ideas for what job to get, but how would a 14/15 year old fill out an application with no experience This is the only thing I have struggled with.

  28. Hi ! I’m 13 but my birthday is in December then I’ll be 14 long way away, is there any summer jobs ? Cause I need to start saving up so I can buy a car at 16. Please reply as soon as you can.

  29. This is a great opportunity for those who are not working and suffering financially this is amazing

  30. I’m 15 living in Boston and I’ve been looking for jobs for a while I have a job as a youth organizer but i want to do something different. Everywhere i look i get no where can i get a little help? Thanks!

    • Hello Shania, Check out th enlist and some of the links to see if any of those places could work well for you!

  31. I have recently put in an application for Chik-fil-a, knowing that they hired 14+ year olds. I am 15. I received a text informing me that they only hire 16+ year olds… I have questions…
