    Best first job?

    So I already have a job but I don't really like it so I'm going searching for another one.
    Requirements:
    1. Can't be anything to do with kitchens
    2. Can't be a tiny place with too many people
    3. Has to be half decent pay

    This isn't a requirement but if it's possible, little to no socialism required.
    I live in Australia and I'm 15 years old.
    Please give me some good suggestions!

    Didn't know you were Aussie O.o

    My first job was in a fish 'n chip shop, shit pay, shit boss but you gain experience :l
    Your best bet is Woolies, Coles or Kmart. Maccas and Hungry Jacks are good places to start too even though that goes against your
    req.

    I think the best place you could work in is Red Rooster since no one goes to that place, though you still get good pay

    I'd say don't be too picky when you're that young mate.
    I first started at McDonalds $10 an hour when I was 15 and now i'm 17 and earning $21 an hour. Starting at the bottom goes a long way.

    As the person above said, go get a job at Red Rooster. Absolutely nobody goes there and i've got no idea why they are still in business.

    My first full time job was working in a movie studio on movies like Great Gatsby, The Lego Movie, Iron Man 3, Hunger Games Catching Fire and a bit of the Walking With Dinosaurs Movie. So you can definitely aim higher than you think. Don't feel that you have to restrain yourself to something shit.

    He could definitely get some kind of paid internship, or a better paying casual job. Just needs to figure what decent skills he has.

    Yea fair enough, but I just can't work at a small place with loads of people like that's probably my biggest pet hate.
    Red Rooster sounds like a good idea <.<

    Keep thought that I still go to school, but a paid internship sounds like something I'm suited for,
    what are some good options? I'm good outdoors like I'm always camping and playing/teaching soccer but I'm also learning some coding languages.

    Working at a theatre/cinema is pretty cool. Free movies.

    You might be able to a software engineering kind of internship at a local IT/database firm. But have a look around at what kind of local companies are there and what kind of roles their employees do. Also along with what @Wassabi? working at a cinema is pretty awesome. If you're a projectionist at a cinema you get to watch the movie, just don't forget to bring along some headphones to drown out the projector. Most digital theatre projectors are piss easy to use as well in conjunction with the tape readers. I know I loved being projectionist.
