Question by Mid_Day: I am a fifteen year old looking for a job in Dallas.?
I am a straight A student and I wish to get a job as waitress. I wanted to know which restaurants, here in Dallas, Texas, hire fifteen year olds. You are probably asking, ‘ What’s the rush? ‘ , well I really need money to help pay for martial art or gymnastic classes.

If there are any, you would not be able to work in places that sell alcohol. Check out the list below to see what jobs your age range is allowed to do. Things open up a bit more for 16-year-olds.
Best of luck!
