Best places for an 18 year old (Year 13) to apply for a job? watch


    (Original post by TheBlackMonster)
    My general experiences thus far...

    Waitrose = Too inexperienced
    JD Sports = Rejected
    Next = Rejected
    Bar Staff = Want a years experience
    McDonalds = Full time places only
    Tesco = Plenty...but over an hour and a half travel
    Cinemas = Inexperienced (wtf @ having to get experience for working in cinemas)
    Krispy Kreme = none hiring near me :cry2:

    so yeah, that's my general feelings from the past 3 weeks of intense job searching...
    Unless your at uni, or doing other studies part time, what's wrong with full time work at McDonalds?

    Erm, he's in year 13, thus still in college/sixth form, I don't see how full time is possible?

    You could work in a charity shop whilst trying to find a job to get retail experience.
