    My brother works at a Chick-Fil-A and hates it.

    I would get a job I just don't have any means of transportation because I don't have a car and live in a suburb.

    I'm in the same situation as you used to be in. I'm 19 and my step dad is on my ass like dingle-berries telling me to get a job. But most of the job places I have been to all the positions are filled or the people just never call me back with shit. I guess some people give off different vibes.

    When I'm in interviews I always feel like they are focused on my hair. I have very curly hair and even when I do things to it I still look like a stoner. They say first impressions are everything and I always dress up when going places no matter what the job is.

    talk to the employees and befriend them, especially if the job they work for is hiring. Try to befriend the more experienced ones so if they are hiring they can recommend you to the boss.

    Where have you applied? Grocery stores, fast food chains, locally owned businesses? A good summer job (that can continue into other seasons if your work is adequate and impressive) would be for product distribution companies, such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi, as a Rotating Account Merchandiser. You'd basically go into stores and stock the shelves with specific products.

    Seriously bro, start making phone calls to the places you've applied. Just call asking whether or not positions are still open and if they'll be reviewing applications soon. Get your name out there, so if a position does come up, the management will think "I remember this young determined guy, Jeremy, was calling about this position." Start bugging employers on a weekly basis. Put your applications in repeatedly whenever you get the chance.
    Perhaps I should start doing that, sending emails and phone calls.

As an employer, who would you want to hire? The one who puts in his app and looks like all the other prospects, or the one who shows determination and an eagerness to work?
    ^ This.

    I called every two days, showed my face once a week, and put in five applications. Was hired in three weeks, they even overlooked my positive drug test because I showed so much more promise than everyone else who applied. I'm making 14 an hour now and I started off at 9, it's been one year. Easy peesy.
