Default Low income/Easiest jobs to get hired, without a college education

What jobs are easiest to get hired into if you do not have a college education or additional skills.

Alot of warehouse jobs are asking for cdl/forklift experience.

I will be graduating a vocational school in a few weeks but I need any job I can get until I can land a job as an auto technician.

I'd try 7-11s and the like, overnight shifts are hard to fill.

Actually, I was going to say that retail and lower wage jobs are harder to find right now. When white collar workers can't find jobs in their fields, they start going after lower jobs, then those people are displaced to lower jobs and it keeps rolling downhill. Suddenly you have a much larger pool of workers competing for the lower paying jobs.

Right, like all the teachers that have been laid off will automatically be a substitute teacher as usually the next best thing. So that leaves subs completely out to work in another field, usually retail, clerical jobs. People w/ degrees in education don't have many types of jobs to choose from either other than be a teacher.

I'd like to know the answer to this question too! People with college degrees are having a tremendously hard time, so what do the people w/ HS diplomas or just some college do? I'd say real estate is normally a good field without a degree, but NOT in this current economy.

I worked that position in high school in the go-go year of 2000. Even then, UPS was a valued and sought after position because they offered health benefits to part timers. I have to imagine those jobs are really tough to get even now.
