my advice, if this is only gonna be a summer job, work somewhere worthwhile for the summer

a ritas, a dairy queen, a water park, a boardwalk, a summer camp, somewhere you can be outside and enjoy the summer

working retail indoors is the WORST in summertime

Definitely not a bad place to work while you're in college if you're not in any internships or anything, as they can be fairly flexible on what your availability is. I started at $9.50 because I had previous experience in computer sales...at $10.16 now...

A friend of mine got hired at best buy at 9 bucks an hour because that's what he made at his old job and they matched it. I would apply if they would match 10 dollars an hour because quite frankly no one should ever have to work with food. Trust me, it's just awful, lol.

That's not a bad price.

Here in Canada, they can't ask you your age in interviews...I'm 14 but I look 17...:laugh:

I work at Best Buy and my starting pay was a little over $8, so they do pay good. Plus, the discounts make it all worthwhile ;)
