    You would be incredibly foolish to lie about your age. Why would you want to get the supermarket in trouble for disobeying labour law? As it happens, you'd never get away with it and then when you're 14 and reapply they'll remember you as someone who was willing to lie to them and ignore penalties and cost to them because you felt like it.

    i'ts not a good idea to lie about your age. you should just wait til' your 14. if you get caught that your lying about your age, they WON'T hire you. They will most likely ask you your social security number. It's on all job applications.

    (social).....all jobs will require your information for tax persoses as well as many other. if u are caught lying it will go on ur employment record and hinder future jobs (u never know what companies are or will be affiliated when u r older).......just wait and get a paper route or go around and ask to water people gardens or mow their lawns or walk their dogs. go to grocry stores and offer ur services to help bag groceries, find nnice seniors who need help and help them. make a list of all services u r willing to do and type it up with prices, include phone number then stick under/on everyones door. don't just sit around and wait for money to come to u, if u want it go get it, legally. u r too young to be worried about money.

    yes....ANY place you go to work will ask for all of that. and no, dont you ever lie on your application.

    just asking this question proves you are not ready for a job and i wouldnt want you anywhere near my money.
