Hey all, I currently live in Japan, and would like to get some experiences working at Apple. I haven't decided which floor I would like to work at, but it will most likely be the Genius Bar.
Now, to get in to my main point, is it possible to work at the Apple Store under the age of 18? I have no idea about the labor laws, work permit, and things like that, but I just to make sure. I saw on other thread that in state of Nevada, a person should be above the age of 16 to get a job.

BTW, I'm 17 currently.

Directly from the Labor Standards Laws:

(Minimum Age)
Article 56. An employer shall not employ children
until the first 31st of March following their having fully
reached the age of 15 years.
2. Notwithstanding the provisions of the preceding
paragraph, outside of school hours, children above 13 full
years of age maybe employed in occupations in enterprises
other than those listed in items 1 through 5 of Annexed
Table No. 1, and which involve light labor that is not
harmful to the health and welfare of the children, with the
permission of the administrative office. The same shall
apply to children under 13 full years of age employed in
motion picture production and theatrical performance
enterprises.

Are you on a visa, and if so what kind?

Japanese immigration won't give you a working visa without a four year degree.

I mean, I am not looking for any job. I want to gain some experience over the summer vacation, since I'll be staying here most likely, and want to do something productive.
