    Yeah........any fast food place (McDonalds, Wendy's, Hardees, Burger King). Also a movie theater, to take tickets. Stock boy at Wal Mart or Sam's Club, or grocery stores. Work for a local farmer. Maybe Blockbuster or Hollywood Video? At a local car wash?
    Good luck!

    Let us know if you find one? :eek:)

    depending on what skills you have, you could find work as a peeon at at an autobody or mechanic's shop. you could also find decent work on a local college campus, at a library, or a temp service.

    McDonalds is a really good place to start, they hire young people during the summer. The money is min wage, but it does put money in your pocket. My Nephew earned enough to Buy his first car. I didn't give the suggestion to be funny. Good Luck. When you're 18 Give the NAVY a chance. (lots of Ops There.)

    I don't like this weather in Pa. Hot & Muggy.

    if you go with the navy, get some kind of specialist job on a nuclear sub. great food, great pay, and a lot of opportunities later on down the road.

    if you do autobody, then all i have to say is PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
    and get really good at the custom work. there are thousands of guys out there working in shops, and yeah, they get decent money, but if you want be able to ever really take it easy, you want to work you way up to something very good for a while.

    Well I'm not too familiar with the laws regarding youth hours and wages in PA, but if you try, you can probably get a stocking job at any local grocier store. I've had many friends who stocked shelves, from what I can tell the work is fairly easy and the pay is well, what you would expect... But the reason I reccomend it is because a job stocking can lead to running a register, or becoming a department manager, or really anything... All you have to do is climb the corperate ladder.

    One of my employees came to me after having worked two years at WinDixie... His name is Josh H. and in those two years, he had went from stocking shelves, to managing the store. His pay had gone up from minimum wage to $16 and hour with weekends off.

    Like all things in life, nothing is easy...

    But at least with this, you're not getting burned in hot grease or working where there is no air conditioning...

    But this is something I cannot stress enough: DO NOT put work ahead of your schooling. One of my former employees, who I could not afford to pay more than $14 an hour, used that money (along with a small family loan) to put himself through Junior College. Now he has a great job that is PAYING him to go to college and he is now driving a $70,000 BMW everywhere. Education is your key to making more money for less sweat. You'll still have to work, don't get me wrong, but you won't have to suffer.

    Above all else though, remember that no ammount of pay is worth unhappiness. You will want to get a job that makes you happy.

    @KiNtAr001 ... howdy guy! I live in PA too; I'm a social worker working with the unemployed. If you tell me your zip code or county (Not your address!!), I may be able to hook you up with a social services agency which specializes in getting jobs for people under 21. (I'm not positive as not all counties have them but I can look it up).

    you could get some lawn mowing jobs, good money for the time spent doing the work, you can easley get $25.00 per lawn or even more, so if you do the work fast and it takes you less thain an hour to do your job, you can make $50.00 a hour and it is tax free, if you get five lawns at $25.00 per lawn per week you could have $125.00 per week and only put in five hours a week easy money
