How many months will count as experience?

I’m sixteen, and I don’t really know much about the workforce yet. I was wondering how many months of working at a fast food place would be considered experience. One of my coworkers told me to at least stay 3 months (even though I despise the job) in order for it to count as experience.

    The longer the experience, the more weight it will carry in the future. Working at a fast food restaurant for one week only shows you a. couldn't cut it, b: are a quitter or a lousy worker and got fired. It means something to stay with a job for awhile even if it's not ideal. If an employer thinks you'll bail as soon as things get tough, then they won't want to waste the time and money to train you.
