At the age of fifteen you really can't be too picky. Supermarkets, shops are always looking for shop assistants, cleaners etc. and trust me, it's hard to even get a job as that. At the age of 15 you don't have much experience so I currently have a job at a factory but I'm not complaining, atleast I have one really.
You can try hairdressers, libraries and all shop in case they need cleaners. Restaurants and cafes in case they need cleaners or waitresses or maybe even kitchen hands.

Hope I helped.

Try to start in a restaurant as a busboy or a dishwasher. A lot of places of places will move you up to a waitress if you do a fantastic job.

You really can't be picky. i have a job in a cafe serving people and whatnot. It's good pay and I don't have much more choice.

retail stores will still hire you if you look mature and act mature
I'm fifteen too and i got hired at Aritzia, and they really didn't bother asking me about my age...
So you should just try apply to everything and don't reveal your age right off the bat, well, unless they ask you.

Good luck!

I heard you can be a hostess at some restaurants when you're fifteen.
I've been wanting to get a job, too :)

it's hard to get jobs even when you're legally allowed to work, let alone illegally. i only got my restaurant job because my mum and the boss's wife are friends..

Down here, they don't even let folks work that young. I believe the minimum age went up to 17 too.
One suggestion though, you could try to see if a veteranarian needs any help. Sometimes they hire really menial help, and the pay would be rubbish. But it's still an option. Like Larn said, can't be picky.
