Looking for a job for my son. Good kid, I just need a open door to give him a chance. Thanks guys.
Hope your Safeway is better than ours. Youngest daughter is a courtesy clerk. 8-10 hrs a week, most shifts end at 11:00 pm.
Most good kids only need a door opened once, as they can usually build confidence to take them from one job to the next.
Good luck to him.
How old and what area does he want to work? Full time or part time?
Turns 20 this November, good kid, just doesnt shine. I just want a part time for him. I want to keep my wife. Lol
Starbucks is good if he can get in, benefits and decent wages for part time. Costco I another really good place to start. Many of the senior corporate people there started boxing the orders or picking up carts.
Larry, if your son is good at following directions and has the ability to do physical types of work, lumber stores and feed stores are almost always looking for good kids that will show up on time, have the ability to throw a sack of feed or small bundle of 2x4's over their shoulder and then just get er done.
Bottom line is if he gets a chance, NEVER be late to work and always be available to work extra hours if needed with little or no notice.
Lastly, leave the cell phone in the car. Social distractions have gotten so bad with some youngsters he should be sure to make them wonder if he even owns a phone.
At 20 years of age he would be able to blend in on most college campuses this would allow you to expand your distribution and grow a new customer base. And you still aren’t infringing on that 1/4 mile clause in your paperwork.
Trader Joes/Costco and Winco are good grocery stores to work at.
How about visiting a recruiting office?
waiter it a good start. make much more than work in costco , trader joe, or any supermarket. tips baby.
Break him in hard now which will allow him to appreciate all other normal jobs in the future. Send him to Alaska as a processor on one of the factory trawlers. 16 hours on 8 hours off 7 days a week for a couple three months. Big problem is he might get hooked. Make a bit of money, come home with a good chunk of time off and then back up to start the cycle all over again...it happens. Then if the guy is on the ball, advancement can be fairly quick. Or on the time off learn to weld and a few other things which might be allow him to move into the engine department as an oiler which with time can actually progress forward ending as Chief. There's "always" a demand for good engineering people. A lot more demand than us wheelhouse types.
You can practically walk in at Boeing right now
Sage advice....learn "hard work" as young as possible. Doing the kid no favors by finding him a easy job (not saying you are). I started wild-land fire-fighting young. Long/dangerous hours....digging a ditch, running saw, scouting land, for 24hrs straight in 110 degree weather while smoking...best job a kid could have.....free room and board in the woods (Ahtanum) with some lovely ladies on the crew as well ..great money too.
Start in the WA St. DNR or Federal Hot-shot crew and work your way to smoke-jumping or rappelling. Too late for this season, I do have connections in the DNR, for next season. But I'd have to vouch for that person, and I'm not going to put my name on the line unless I know they'll kick-ass.
Ass. , now I am worried about the fluency in your statement. You seem very well versed in some protocol, around little children. What's up Vance, you need therapy? I can help.
