I'm sorry to say this but I'm sure most people won't give you a job till you're aged 16 :/

It is not hard work at all, it just consisted of stacking the shelves and replenishing stock, and if you are good enough, working at the till. They put some emphasis on sales but a LOT of people come to wh smith anyway so all you really have to do is ask them how you can help, and when they buy something make it look like you encouraged them to buy it, even though they were going to buy it anyway.

Its a great starter job you should do it.

I was delivery assitant with my local grocery store, i lived on one of the council estates in westmintser, and all the rich people round the corner in eaton place and grosvoner couldnt be bothered to shop for fresh fruit and vegetables and milk.,

If you are rural farms are great places to gain employment, some friends of mine earned good money picking apples and berries. paid around £5 an hour

I also have been looking towards working as a sales assistant in WH Smith (also 15-16 years old), can I ask about how you asked about the job? I live really close to the WH Smith I'm hoping to work at, would it be unprofessional if I decided to go and ask one of the staff there in person?

You need to apply online. In person will do nothing

You could be an escort for babysitters. I hear that's a thing now.

Thanks
