First time working what are the best places to apply?
What Guys Said 3
I started out in retail... Big box stores (Target, Sears, Best Buy, etc.) are easy to start in, offer a (fairly) relaxed work environment, and are usually pretty easy to work with as far as scheduling around school and requesting time off when needed. Depending on what department you work in, it can be a good place to meet people too (co-workers).
If you're looking for a job you can grow with, there can be opportunity in retail as well, various supervisor positions, management, etc...
The reason bigger retail stores might be easier than smaller retail stores is because if it's a small "mom & pop" shop there might not be that many people working, so if someone calls out sick, someone else will probably have to change their plans and work a double shift to cover, where as a big store like a Target probably has enough people already working that shift to cover for one person being out, or there are enough other people who would gladly take the extra hours that you probably won't need to worry about being called in at the worst time.
My first job was at Target when I first got my drivers license, it was a fun job and I met a lot of cool people who I'm still (distant) friends with over 10 years later.
If you're interested in a specific career though or have a passion that you can get a job around, go for that though. In other words if you love books, try Barns & Nobel, if you like flowers, try and get a job at a florist, if you like baking and making pastries, try and get a job in a bakery.
Retail I think would be a pretty easy way to ease into working life, but that's just me.0
