Anyone who’s got a job recently where did you get it? I’ve applied for so many jobs like almost 30 and i’ve got like 5 rejections and the rest haven’t even replied. Where can i get a job that’ll hire me immediately idm working in a warehouse or whatever. Just anywhere that pays decently. I can’t go anywhere that needs a DBS though bc i don’t have any photo ID. I’m 18 btw and i live in leicester.

I'm in a similar position

Just finished the sixth form (deciding whether to go to uni or not) and nowhere will accept me. I don't have particularly high expectations either, minimum wage will do me (as long as it's not McDonald's).

The annoying thing is that most jobs expect (even without asking) experience, something which clearly we have none of. My question is how do I get experience if everyone is asking for it xD?

Anyways goodluck, I'm up to 15 jobs so far

Are you looking for your first permanent job after leaving school/college or something you can do part-time while carrying on studying?

Are you after full time work or part time?
Try McDonald's, as they take on a lot of people without experience. A lot of shops, supermarkets, fast food places etc are taking on at the moment. A lot of hospitality type places are taking on as well.
Warehouse wise- if you able to travel outside of Leicester I know where there may be warehouse Jobs going.

I worked there for 9 years. I never found much wrong with the place. It's better than people think.

Not McDonald's in general, Just the one close to me, some of my old bullies work there, and plus the salary at that one is literally minimum wage for under 18-year-olds and I think that's pretty disrespectful considering how challenging the job looks.

Most McDonald's, even company owned ones are above minimum wage (franchises sometimes pay slightly more).
At one point I was getting paid more an hour at McDonald's than I was at the children's nursery I also worked at. Bearing in mind working at a children's nursery is more responsibility as you are looking after people's children.

I might consider applying to McDonald's now after all. Thank you.

Lots of delivery jobs going around in catering like Uber Eats, Just Eat, local restaurant/takeaway drivers etc. have a look in your area. You will need to be able to drive or ride a bike or motorcycle.

I applied with an agency and they didn’t ask me any interview questions. It was just if i wanted a day shift or a night shift and that’s pretty much it. How did you find it?
