Anyone know how many fast food, retail, or similar entry level jobs are available in Clearwater near SPC?

19 year old with a year experience in retail and couple summers factory cleaning and assembling looking to start at the bottom and work up.

Probably not many. The jobs are hard to come-by...even for lower-level entry jobs, regardless of your past work history (I've been meeting several people flipping burgers and the like, lately, that have decent, 4 year college degrees ).

However, with that said, with school going back into session next week, SOME jobs will be opening up, as the kids leave them and/or their hours get cut. I heard Publix may be hiring (can't assure you that, though).

If you qualified for a pell-grant, if you're in college, try getting a college-work study. Walk around to the different departments at your campus, and speak with the department secretaries to see if they need help. It won't pay much (I worked for SPC a year ago, and made 8.50, which is decent, but...had limited hours), and you can only work that specific job 15 hours a week.

Good luck.
