    Really interested to know as I am 16 and am finding it really difficult to find a job. Everyone I apply for as for experience but I don't have experience because I can't find a job! My GCSE predictions are really good, but am currently taking GCSEs so don't have results yet.

    £3 per day (not the best pay but it only takes an hour and adds up overtime)

    I used to work as a sales assistant at the card factory on minimum wage, started as an xmas temp and then got kept on

    tbh no one is going to hire you until you finish school, start looking again in the holidays but september/october will be the best time as xmas temp jobs are opening up and lots of students will be moving away to uni and quitting their jobs
