Summer Job Frenzy
Summer is coming up and teens looking for part time jobs are on the rise. While many new positions have opened up, some are harder than others to get.
Pizza Hut is nearly always hiring. On their website, they have a whole section dedicated to helping job hunters seek possible employment. It is possible to enter a radius within how far away one would be willing to work and find a local shop that is hiring.
For those who enjoy working with children, there are always babysitting and/or tutoring jobs. Babysitting and tutoring are usually easy jobs to find if one knows people with kids, but if not, Care.com is a great place to find a family looking for someone to watch or tutor their children. Signing up is free, but parent permission is required for those under the age of 18.
The Les Schwab on Mission St. is hiring 16-18 year olds for a part time cleaning job.
People can apply at Les Schwab’s website. Applicants should talk to the manager, Don O’ Sullivan, so that he knows who has applied. According to Assistant Manager Ryan Rolf, the job is good for students interested in automotive or mechanical fields.
“It’s an entry level position into a company that offers a retirement trust and advancement opportunities to all full time employees,” Rolf said.
Then winding down towards the end of the summer, the Oregon State Fair opens back up with many positions to run booths, rides, and more. To apply, applicants must turn 16 years of age by August 26 this year, and can not have been convicted for sex offenses, person-to-person crimes, felony thefts, or misdemeanor thefts within the past three years according to the Oregon State Fair’s official website.
Other locations also hiring locally are Buffalo Wild Wings, Nordstrom, and Papa John’s.
