    I had a paper route when I was 13. I made about 10$ a week for about an hour a day/5 days a week. Not bad money at that age. This was the early 90's.

    -Job: Timber Medial Surveyor Assistant
    -Pay: £7.15 per hour
    -Hours: 25-50 hours a week
    -What you do: Assist. It's just labour work, but the general idea is that we check for woodrot in houses and get rid of it.
    -Requirements: None that I know of.
    -Best Part: Getting paid for destroying property :evil:
    -Worst Part: Can get very tiring, and I'm not used to getting up at 7am then throwing myself into labour work.

    It is, but I think you can look forward to that being increased to £5.15 in the next few months, IIRC.

    check your state laws. i know i had to get a work permit to work. here is what was required

    1. note from school principal stating they attended school that year.
    2. birth certificate and social security card
    3. note from employer listing that they want to hire you and must have #hours per week and decription of what you will be doing.

    take all that in to your school district building
    and they will give you a permit

    -Job: Caddy/ looking for other part time work
    -Pay: $14 US per round plus tips
    -Hours: sometimes 6 A.M. to 1 P.M., others none at all, for lack of "loops"
    -What you do: carry around a golfer's golf bags
    -Requirements: decent stamina, polite
    -Best Part: good money, for a 15 year old
    -Worst Part: many boring, no work days

    I'm only fifteen, so there aren't that many job opportunities available to me, although I will be getting a work permit soon, I think.
    I hope this isn't spamming: Job ideas? PM me.

    Cool thread. I have two summer jobs...

    Job-Work in Shipping department of photo award shop
    Pay-7 an hour, time and a half for overtime above 40 hours a week
    Hours-usually 8-5 (includes 1 hour of overtime)
    What I do: I pack and ship products, drive a little forklift around the warehouse, build products (stuff like trophies, plaques, etc), do busywork..
    Requirements: My boss only hires people who are 18+. Physical strength and stamia are required, and basic computer skills.
    Best part: Its nice being so close to the running of a bussiness, so I'm learning lots about that. My boss and manager also often ask me questions, and listen to my suggestions, so I feel like I'm actually involved. Also, I can listen to my ipod a lot.
    Worst part: The work is ball bustingly boring...plus you're on your feet all day, so I'm sore when I get home. My boss makes me listen to Rush Limbaugh every day for 3 hours as well. Pay is awful, but there arent many jobs in Ohio (even for skilled labor like me), and our min wage is one of the lowest in the county, so I take what I can get. I made 10 an hour living in DC.

    Job- Musician!
    pay-totally varries. When I work as a percussion instructor, I make around 10-11 an hour. Its hard to gauge how much I make per hour performing, but my share ranges from 20 (a bad night), to 100 (a very good one)
    Hours-varies. I usually actually *play* an engagement or two per week, and I have to set aside at least 3 hours per show. I practice around 5 a week with my band...and practice by myself for at least 30 min a day. I teach, when I teach, from 8-12:30
    What I do: Lots of things. in the late summer, my high school alma mater hires me to teach underclassmen and middle schoolers the fine arts of drumming and marching. I also sometimes compose percussion pieces for the school district.
    Over the course of the whole summer, I tour with my blues band, Aces High. I'm a drummer, harmonica player, and am now learning to sing!
    Requirements: Besides being able to play drums well, I have to be patient, a good teacher, and above all, be flexible. Things go wrong all the time at gigs, and you have to know how to keep your cool, and improvise to fix the situation
    best part: Are you kidding me? Im being paid to play drums!
    worst part: Not enough hours...and at this stage, i often have to take gigs for free

    -Job: Tuition Teacher
    -Pay: 20-25SGD(approx. 15USD) per hour
    -Hours: 5 hours a week
    -What you do: Teach kids how to pass their exams
    -Requirements: A Level cert.(For me anyway)
    -Best Part: It's 5 hours a week!
    -Worst Part: Those 5 hours are split into 3 sessions :D. And I travel 2 hours to and from each one.

    It's so much better than the waitering I did anyway, which gave me 4 USD per hour. And I get to continue when term starts. Woot!

    BTW: If anyones company ships 20 or more freight items/month, PM me ;)

    And Salty Mud, I had to get a work permit at 14 herew in Florida...I don't believe you can get one at 13, unless you're being paid under the table. Then again, your state might be different. But I say, take this summer off. You have all your life to work, why start 2 years before everyone else?

    Well, according to the logic of some OT posters, you could be hitting them... :mischief:
