He wants a job to save money for a school activity that will come with a very hefty price tag. He had created a (nicely done) resume and completed an application for a discount clothing store that he thought hired 15 year olds. He was called for an interview, but they once they determined his age said they couldn't interview him (but did say that his application stood out among the others they had and to please reapply next year
There are few options for him. He could detassle corn I assume, living where we do now. This is really not the first thing I would think of for my kid, but it's an option.
The grocery store he is thinking of hires 15 year olds (well, that's what he said about the other store, but he said they even hire 14 year olds).
We talked about his having some wipes with him at all times. He thinks in his pocket and I think under a checkout counter. At this grocery store, sackers typically stay in one line. DNQ At this grocery store, there is no carry out (you drive through to pick them up).
Hmmmm. I don't know. I think it could work. This store seems good about hiring people with disabilities. One of the sackers I often get (got this evening) I think is on the spectrum. Not that I am a professional diagnostic person, but just based on conversations and the mistake I made once of switching my bag preference for a few of my items (when I needed more than I brought). And there are a few other folks there with disabilities. I'm thinking it would not be hard to work out an accommodation with the manager.
