Hey fellow nsers, I was just looking for some advice on high paying jobs for minors. I am in the market for a job, and preferably one that pays well. I have already applied for a couple, but unfortunately i cant be accepted until i turn 18. So in the meantime im looking for a job to make some cash. Anybody got any body good ideas?
REF SOCCER. Trust me. I know a guy that got laid off and then became a soccer ref and busted his ass of reffing and still made ends-meat plus some. It may not be fun starting out reffing those 6 year olds but its very satisfying officiating a game of 18 year olds that was a very intense game. If you can find classic(cup) games in your area, then you can make upwards of $60 CASH per game.
sports officiating is a good way to go. i started with little league/babe ruth. paid pretty decent. then i started doing league and high school softball. easiest money ever. high school was typically $70/game. occasionally got like a ten run rule in an hour or so. high school baseball was definitely the most entertaining/fun, however you had to be on point
if you dont want to make minimum wage, youre going to need to find something like a city job mentioned above or go into the service industry. unless youre chill delivering pizzas, that means being a busser/starting in a restaurant. prepare to deal with some of the shittiest co workers and climbing up from the bottom.
well im 17 and i have reffed soccer and still do and that is by far the best job for the money. i worked at an alpine slide last summer that shit fucking sucked. and now i am in the market for a new one i am thinking about jimmy johns, or some other food places. i have friends that work at a local diner and they make bank. and my last option is a ski shop its my last because it is the farthest away. good luck my friends.
See if your parents have any jobs available where they work or any friends who do. During this summer, I was 17, I was going to work for a construction company my dad uses on all his projects but I ended up separating my shoulder. Instead he talked to his accountant and hooked me up with a job there which I was getting paid $20/hour to set up accounts and do bank reconciliations and such. Fairly easy work, indoors and could do it hungover everyday best job by far and looks really good on my resume and university application especially for commerce program.
I had a job bagging groceries at 15 and by 16 I was the manager running the front end (at max 10 cashiers and 10 baggers, with someone outside doing carts). Hell I was the best employee at that establishment and I barely did jack shit.
Then I quit dat lifestyle cause I got sick of talking to moms of people I knew. trying to get me to date their daughters cause I had a good paying job and whatnot.
That's not true, and it's not relevant to this thread. Goddammit dude.
I Lifeguard making minimum wage ($7.75). It's pretty chill; there's a bunch of free time to go swimming or play computer games. Try to get a job at a private pool if you can; they generally have more attractive girls.
If you can hustle, good with people and think quick on your feet, you can do well in restaurants. I started when I was 14 washing dishes at a pizzeria I could bike to making minimum wage, then by 17 I was able to drive to the owner's resturant in another area to buss tables because I straight worked my ass for him.
After that, I had the opportunity to work for a catering company as a server, eventually learned to bartend and cook a little bit there as well. Met a lot of people I today call my friends and had a great time working along the way, as intense as catering was.
Today, I'm 19 and waiting tables at a classy-casual place that a professional hockey player owns making more money than I ever thought I would (I could meet a goal of 500/week as a full time student if I NEEDED to), pulling in hundo + tips a few times a night on the right nights. It's easy to make some good cash in a resturant, but it takes a while to get good at it. Took me 4 years.
In the end, working your hardest at whatever you by putting your heart into whatever you're up to will do you the best service for yourself. Learn this at a young age and it will take you places, good luck landing your first job!
Lot guy at a car dealership. Super chill (at least from my, and my friends, experience) get to drive some pretty nice cars and pays good for what it is. So for I've driven sti's, evo's, corvette, a shit ton of audis and bmws, a couple gti's, and a Nissan gtr. Plus in the winter you get to spend the whole day drifting the shitty trucks that are going to auction
