Hey you are from cali too ^-^! I was lucky! I frequent Tong's and constantly ask for job positions. I am 17, but I have a beard (I look 24, I have been hit on by older women, asked if i wanted the happy hour special, etc) So when I was filling out the app I told them I was in high school and they were shocked haha. They still hired me though :) Sorry for you though Hopefully you will get lucky soon. Only Ma and Pa stores hire our age group. Big places like Petsmart hire at 18 :/ Petco hires people at 16, but it is super competitive (i have been applying since september for them) So good luck!

My local ma and pa shop loves me. But they also do not hire as they are literally just ma and pa working. So no dice.
And yes, born and raised in the Inland Empire! Applying for jobs is hard for me, and it doesn't help that I look like I could be a 12 year old.

I'm so glad you could find a job doing something you love! Better work hard to get that place's reputation up fish-wise!

Hey me too ^-^ You must know/been to Tong's. They are ranked decent, but I really want to make the place popular, and amazing! There are so many things I want to do, advertise, be helpful, etc. Be the employee the customer and employer both want. I am very excited!!!

I have never been there personally, but I passed it once while out with my dad and looked it up to find that they aren't so good in customer service.

But I am sure that will change now! It'd better!

Oh trust me, while I am there, it will. I plan to be awesome, and hopefully friendly since everyone says I look mad :/ I never am.

My lfs's really need to hire some knowledgable people, young or not. I've heard some really ridiculous aquarium advice from them.
Congrats!
