How old do you have to be to work at Baskin Robbins?

I'm a 14 year-old (turning 15 on April 21st), and I was wondering if I could apply for Basking Robbins (the one on Brandon Ave in Springfield). I heard a lot of people from my school work their, so I was hoping that I could join some of my schoolmates and work with them too. I tried applying for Giant, but they said I don't qualify, so basically this and some other stores are my only option. So basically, I was wondering, how old do you have to be to work at Baskin Robbins in general? What are my chances of getting the job if I am a first-timer? Thanks for your help, guys!

At your age, you should focus on getting better grades so someday you won't have to work at a crappy job in a supermarket or ice cream store.

Whenever I have employment questions I never ask the store or my parents, I always turn to the sage advice offered by FFXU. That way I'm sure to get the real "scoop" and not be lied to or made to look a fool. Shit, I never ask smart folks questions, FFXU is like a digital Ken Jennings, just stocked full of good facts and figures for me to use at a moments notice.

Well to tell you the truth guys, Yahoo Answers and sites like those can't help me either. They don't have the people from the same county as you answering your questions, do they? That's why I asked you guys. I tried asking my parents, but I at LEAST need the opinions of you guys. And plus, they don't know either. I need some good solid info before I can just enter the store asking for their minimum age requirement...

Why? Just pick up the phone, call a store or a regional office, and ask the question. What is so hard about that? Taking exactly one minute to do that would have had your problem solved and you know you have a good answer. Why be so afraid to go to the source? What good does having fifteen different answers in your head before you finally make the call do?

Well, I haven't checked personally, but I had a friend years ago that worked at BR when she was 15. She hated it. It's hard work. Maybe a little easier if you're male, with better upper body strength, but still hard. And chances are you'll never want to buy their ice cream again.

If Meade can work a frozen yogurt mall store then this kid can work at BR.

Hey you stupid kid, stay in school and get straight A's. Then go to college. You'll be better off in the long run.

If a kid wants to work I say that's awesome, let him or her do it. It is a great experience and creates a little motivation to do well in education.

While I agree the way of doing this is a little misplaced at least this kid wants to work and who knows the next time you go into a fast food joint in Springfield you may get someone taking your order that speaks the Kings English...

Here is what you need to work at 15 in VA...

As for the employer, some may have rules, as someone said above you are going to have to check with them directly.

Are you a girl or guy?

If you're a girl, when do you turn 18? If you're a guy, I don't care.

start young and you can work your way to the top of the chain of command! What is a useless piece of paper good for? Fires, I suppose. If you are smart enough, you can make it! What do you go to school for? Life or a piece of paper?

Talk to your fiends who work there. Hang out at the store while they're working. Get one of them to recommend you. Odds are that they're not going to stay on the job long and can put in a word for you as a replacement...

Yeah but looking at Meades body I think the profit margin takes a serious hit
