From what I've seen and what I've heard, United is a great place for teens to work.  I know I always have very polite, upbeat, young adults who carry my groceries out.

They always have different positions available.

Fast Food Restaurants

Fast Food restaurants are always looking for great help


Odds are that you own a lawnmower.  If you teen knows how to mow the lawn or clean the flower beds.

Start off asking family, friends or neighbors if they need their yards taking care of, or place a Craigslist ad.


I know when I was growing up and a teen, I earned my extra money by babysitting.   Start putting feelers out to friends, family, neighbors, or at church.  Or you could always post on the Amarillo/Canyon pages on facebook.

Plus it is always a plus when you are CPR certified, etc.  Amarillo College offers a babysitting class.
