Getting a job feels like a rite of passage whether you’re stoked to finally be making your own cash or you’re anxious about stepping into a new environment. Luckily, the characters in this list are also going through it so maybe you can commiserate together.

From pizza palaces to supernatural seances, the teens in these stories are a resilient bunch. As if their first foray into customer service wasn’t thankless enough, some of them have to deal with health inspectors, booger-infested kids, summer flings gone wrong, and even a few terrifying truths. So if you’re dreading your first shift, maybe hope that it stays boring for a while.
