    Hi. I'm a bit confused. I'm 15 and I went In to a cafe today and asked for weekend and evening work. They said that they normally hire 16+ year olds. They admired my enthusiasm and said they'd be happy to let me do things like washing etc. They said they'd speak to their accountant (PLEASE TELL ME WHY.) and also look at the rota. Does this mean I've got the job?
    Thanks

    They will need to check with the accountant to see if they can actually afford to hire you, and if their insurance will cover you (sometimes there are age limits, because you can't serve alcohol and things like that). They will also want to check the law, as there are restrictions on when you can work and for how long.

    So no, it's not guaranteed you got the job, because they may not be able to employ you. You're only allowed to work between 7am and 7pm, so they may not need more staff at those times. You can also only work for 4 hours at a time, unless they give you a break of an hour - they may need someone for a 5 hour shift, in which case it would be difficult to employ you.
