Children over 13 can do paper round. If interested in doing paper route, check the schedule of the newspaper against your personal schedule. If you have to be at work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., then an afternoon paper route may not fit into your schedule, but a morning one might. Look in the classified advertisements to see if any of the newspapers in your area are hiring route carriers. If you don't find any ads, choose the paper you want to carry and call the circulation department. Ask if there are any routes available or if you could apply to be on the waiting list. Contact a current carrier and ask to be a substitute carrier. Most paper route carriers are contractors and not employees of the newspaper, and they are responsible for hiring and paying their substitutes. Make sure your vehicle is reliable. You will have to run your routes even if there is inclement weather. If you have an early paper route, you will probably be running it before daylight.
