A job where you end smelling like 1 one the most manly smells or where you get to dress formal for work.

1. ANY job is a good job to have

2. ANY job is a good job for a 12 year old to have

3. There is NO SUCH THING as a manly job, a real man will work whatever job is available to provide for his family or make his way in the world.

I fully agree with 3.  We have allowed media to teach generations that flipping burgers, stocking selves, (nursing for men) was some how demeaning and below them.  This is wrong thinking.  If someone does good work and brings home the pay, great for them.

At 15? You're lucky to have a job. If you want to smell butch after work, get an outdoor job. If you want to dress up for work, work house for a professional theatre company or be a waiter. Take what you can get at this stage, my son.

Just take what is readily available for your schedule and run with it, dude. That is the Manliest thing to do. 

Look to your local park district for a job. Summer's coming to an end, so umpiring/reffing baseball and soccer is probably a no go, but I'm sure if there's an indoor league somewhere, you can apply to ref for youth soccer games. 

I'd say secret agent would be a good way to combine the two.

I think it's more important for a teenage boy to learn the value of work, to see the task through to the end, and to take pride in his work and do it well, and not so much the job itself.  And, while it's less important, I think hard physical labor is a good place to start. 

Sheetrockin' comes to mind.

Paper boy.

Don't laugh. 

I was one; you get used to real world real quick;

People don't pay you.

Dogs chase you.

You are out in the rain and snow and heat and cold, early morning.

Welcome to the world of work.

you got that right Rick- many guys in the field do not have a clue, some plain don't care- either way, a dedicated DIYer can do a good job with practice. I guess when the tolerances are "within a quarter inch" maybe there really isn't a big deal in terms of certification.

i suggested this because it's a job that a 15 year old can do, only trick is getting hired before age 16 but lots overlook that for a good worker. it sure does build up the body and the manly smells. pays better than mowing yards

Mow lawns / landscaping - sweat and hard work.

Hardware Store - learn how to do things and what tools do what

Bus Tables - learn how to provide service

My first two jobs were bussing tables at a country club and doing groundswork at a golf course (simultaneously, and both when i was 14). Both taught me valuable lessons about responsibility, integrity, and motivation (as well as instilling a lifelong hatred of golf and golfers, but that's another story). The fact is, jobs for young teenagers are limited, both in availability and desireability, but it is what you make it. Even if you're just taking orders at a burger joint, you will learn something (if only how to deal with idiots without punching them), and it will look good in your search for future employment- if you do your best.
