"Ditto to the poster who said paper boy.  I had routes at two different times in my life.  You learn customer service and responsibility very, very fast.  I cannot tell you the correlation I have seen of people later in life doing well…"

"Well if you wait a little bit longer till you are 16 you can be a lifeguard. It's a lot of responsibility and teaches you to be assertive and cautious. There is no room to mess up in this job. You have to be fit, calm in rough situations, and…"

"At 15, I was shoveling shit and flipping burgers. Since then, ive done everything from construction to salesman and now I run a Gastropub... as many others have said... there is no such thing as a "manly job". Just the real men doing them."

"First of all, it is manly to work.  It is not manly to not work.  There is honor in work.  There is dishonor in laziness.  The seemingly lowest employee of a McDonald's cleaning toilets stands a mile above the slickest…"

"The correct answer is any job that isn't abusive and doesn't interfere with your school work. "Manly"?  That's merely doing a day's work for a day's pay. Owing to laws and insurance, jobs for anyone under 18…"

"When I was 15 1/2  I got my first job at a local car wash.  I'm not sure if it was manly or not, but I've always loved cars so being able to be inside of a variety of cars (especially the very nice ones) was a great…"

"At age 15 I wouldn't worry about how "manly" the job might be. Sorry, but in today's economy it is not unusual for teenagers to be competing against their adult aunts an uncles for the same jobs. Several have mentioned paper…"

"I worked as a paper boy and now work at a small local produce store. Paper routes are great because they don't take too long, teach great work ethic (you have to complete the job, even if the conditions outside are terrible), and also they…"

"At 15 in today's economic climate any job is a good one to have and consider yourself lucky. As for  manly, it ain't the nature of the work that makes any job manly but the nature of the man doing it. Hustle, bust your ass, take pride…"

"Any job where you show up every day, do a good enough job to be proud of the amount of effort you put in, and can honestly say to yourself you deserve the paycheck you brought home is a manly job. I don't care if it is watering daisies,…"

"Mowing lawns, construction, waiter, busboy, movie theater, stockboy, shoe salesman, mechanic helper, ... Basically any job that will hire you would be manly as long as you work hard at it."

"Messy work but you'd be surprised about how many people can't do a decent job of it.  Hired contractors to do a bathroom and found I can do a better job than they did."

Hello from KY!

Hey, guys! I'm Nick. I've been reading AoM for a few years now, and I'm very excited to be diving into the community. I'm heading into my freshman year of college this fall, and if the good Lord is willing and the Creek don't rise, I'll be pursing a Civil Engineering degree. I hope to enjoy some great discussion with you guys and improve as a young man. See More
