Some limitations can be selling alcohol and driving. * Anything but working in a liquor store. * Fast food restaurant, car washes, actually you can work at any place that will hire them.

Cashier was the most common occupation among 16-year-old females with employee jobs; cook was the most common job for males. * Cashiers accounted for 20 percent of the female youths with employee jobs. The next most common occupation for 16-year-old females was food counter, fountain, and related occupations, at 14 percent. * Of the young males with employee jobs, 14 percent worked as cooks. The next most common job for 16-year-old males was stock handlers and baggers * Data on the employment experience and other characteristics of youths are a product of the National Longitudinal Surveys program. Note that jobs such as babysitting or yard work done on an as-needed basis or for multiple employers are considered to be freelance jobs rather than employee jobs. Additional information is available from "Employment Experience of Youths during the School Year and Summer," news release USDL 03-4 * Check out your local Parks and Recreation Departments.

After 90 consecutive days of employment or the employee reaches 20 years of age, whichever comes first, the employee must receive a minimum wage of $5.15 per hour." --> copied from http://funadvice.com/r/3kc8t8g7ba * Try http://funadvice.com/r/3kc8t8g7ee * First, apply to everywhere you can. your chances go up significantly the more places you apply. Then, About 3 days to 1 week afterwords, go back in and see if the employer has seen your application. I cannot overstress the importance of this because employers want to hire ambitious people. If you do this, at most establishments that hire 16 year old, you should either get something along the lines of we're not hiring, or that they want to set up an interview. As you are interviewed, do not say anything that could get you in trouble, and allow them to have you take a drug test. If you do everything and say what they want to here, your home free. Good Luck! * Probably nowhere. Federal labor laws set limits on how many hours a week minors can work, and what times during the day. The restrictions are set up so that teens aren't scheduled during school hours or late evening shifts. * Also, unless you have been working at one thing your entire life, you don't have enough experience for much more than minimum wage positions. Sorry about that. * You should go to the library and look at the book Jobs for Kids or 100 Jobs for Kids & Young Adults for some ideas.

Your best bet is cashier jobs in major retail stores such as Walmart, Target, etc.
You can try restaurants that don't serve alcohol, tanning salons, fast food places, retail stores in the mall, daycares.
