"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…"

"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…"

"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…"

"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."
