COVID caused a big fall off in Americas jobs, over 50 million people quit their job just this past year. More places than ever are looking for people to work and minimum wage is all the way up to almost $12 an hour. This is the perfect time for teenagers to get a job.

Certain jobs that are common around Saint Charles and Saint Peters that tend to hire teens are Whapelhorst, Walmart, Culvers, McDonalds, Target, Schnucks, Deweys, Smoothie King and Quicktrip or you could work around the school at Francis Howell North as a janitor as we have a shortage of them.

The first step to getting a job is simply applying, you can apply online or in person. Once you have applied, it normally takes around three to five days for the employer to get back to you. If the establishment likes your application, they will most likely invite you in for an interview. When going to the interview, it would be in your best interest to wear something business casual and not just everyday wear. While this isn’t mandatory, it is well advised as it will make you stand out from people who don’t. Once at the interview, just answer the questions they ask you to the best of your ability and you can stretch the truth a little to make yourself look better if you would like to. After the interview, the job should tell you if you are hired and let you know what else you might need to complete to finish the hiring process.
