Depends on the job. If that job doesn’t need a levels then, right now sure, a levels don’t matter.

Never know what might happen 2 years from now tho. Or even next year. May as well try your best while you can so you don’t have to waste time and money resitting.

As you get further away in years from your qualification, the less it’ll matter. Because, hopefully, in that time you’ll have achieved things that are more interesting/impressive/desirable to employers

As above, depends on the job. Generally speaking, the more senior the position, the higher the academic requirements will be. Some may ask for AL's but other will just be after GCSE's.

Yes please don't not revise for your A levels just because you aren't going to uni. Although it will depend on the job, some will look at your past qualifications when considering your application so better A levels COULD boost your chances of getting the job. Also, past qualifications may be used if loads of people have applied and they need something to help decide who will get it, or a chance to get an interview.
However, at the same time if you are worried about A levels affecting your chance of getting a job, then don't worry because as people have already mentioned hopefully you will gain new qualifications and experience for future jobs that are considered more important than a levels to employers.
