5 Places to Work at 14

5 Places to Work at 14

So you’re broke, and can’t find a job because no one wants to hire a fourteen year old. You’re ‘immature’, or can’t drive yourself which they count as a liability. We get it, we’ve been there, but lucky for you, we’re here to help.

Here are five places you can work 14 and older;


Chick Fil A

Now, this one you have to be mindful of due to the fact that it varies from location to location. At some Chick Fil A establishments, the work limit is also sixteen, but luck may be in your favor if you look hard enough and you can prove you’re reliable. 


Dairy Queen

You may have friends that work here, as it seems to be a popular location for work here. Some Dairy Queen’s will take a fourteen year old on staff, however, this also varies place 

to place. 



This may not be for some of you out there, you may hate kids, but for those of you that don’t, this could be a good opportunity. Depending on who you work for, the pay fluctuates and there’s a tad more leniency. Now, depending on who you work for, if you commit to one family or take on more, nothing is really set in stone. There are families that would need you every single day after school, and others that would only need you on a random Saturday night. 


Six Flags

This one also depends on what location you’re looking at, but they do occasionally hire workers as young as fourteen at the parks. I may even look into this for summer!


Yard Work

This one is good for most seasons honestly. Maybe your parents already make you shovel snow, mow the lawn, or rake the leaves, but wouldn’t it be so much better if you got paid for it? I personally have been paid a hundred bucks all for raking and bagging all the leaves in one yard. This one is simple as running next door to that older lady and asking if she’d want your services with cleaning up. You can even offer other things such as helping lay mulch or maybe that same old lady has a garden she needs help keeping up with. The opportunities are endless.
