Depends on what your doing. You can get that somewhat under control with meds (be careful though)
I would say yes as long as you can do your job. Say pushing carts at a store. That not a bad job plus it's pretty simple. If they started asking you to do multiple things at once, you may need to let them know that you have ADHD and need directions one at a time. I know that some people with ADHD struggle with this sometimes.

Of course you can still get a job with ADHD, and I'm not just saying that.
If you are on medications which work well for you, then I don't see a problem.
Out of curiosity, do you mean, for instance, a summer job? Or a more stable one?
