What places hire 16 year olds?

I just turned 16 today and I kind of want a job but I don't know where to go. My mom can easily get me in at McDonald's because she's the district manager but that's kind of a problem...I don't want my mom watching over me the whole time. And that's the only fast food place close to my house. I was thinking of trying a clothing store or something like that (maybe at the mall or something?) but I don't know if any of them would hire me. And there is a dairy queen where I live but I never see anybody my age in there so I don't know. What kind of places should I try to apply to?

    Basically anywhere hires 16+ unless it's a bar then you have to be 21+ so..

    I think pet stores hire at 16. I'd check around online or call stores that are hiring to see if you're old enough. But I'm not totally sure on too many jobs.

  • Some stores will hire 16-year-olds, but not all. You have to ask.

    Some farms hire teenagers too.
