What was your first job?
My first job was a McJob. I worked at McDonald's as a cashier/server... for about 2 weeks. Then my gramma died and I dreaded going to work. My dad went to pick me up from work thinking I was on schedule that day (I wasn't) and they told him that "it wasn't really working out" so I quit the next day before they could fire me.
Hardly anyone survives their first job without quitting or being fired, right? Especially at 16 years old.
I got my first job when I started college. I worked in the mail room as a mail clerk for our "college" (the university was broken into little colleges). After the first year I was promoted to manager. It was a fun, easy job, but I used to have to work summers.
I was the game room attendant at the local sports bar/pizza place :eek: I made change for the kids while there parents drank and cashed out the pool tables when the drunks were finished, I did however make great tips because people were usually too buzzed to count right!!
Other than babysitting and other jobs i was paid cash for....
I worked as a chambermaid for 3 weeks before i got a job as a presenter at our Science center. Pay was about the same but people live like pigs in a place that isn't theirs!
Life guard at a city pool.. I did have a great tan that summer, just hated dealing with the kids that would get dropped off as soon as the pool opened and didn't get picked up until the pool closed.
i started baby sitting at 11. at 15 i had my first "job" getting $5 an hour under the table working for a woman who ran a day care in her home. i used to ride my bike about 5 miles to get there and i LOVED it. best summer job i ever had!
working in a barn cleaning stalls (for horses) and also workin at the harness racing track grooming horses.. my i miss that job it never felt like work
Tutoring (I was paid with food stamps) I was 12.
I bagged groceries starting @ 15 @ 16 I became a cashier, but left shortly after to waitress.
I worked at Dairy Queen when I was 16. I loved it! Free ice cream! LOL!
I babysat and worked at the barn where I boarded my horse.
My very first job was babysitting, I think I was 14 or 15 when I started working at Burger King, I worked at Hardees for a while in my teens too and then Shopko in my later teens and at a nursing home as a CNA for a while.
I started at a General Store in my home town making pizzas and subs and such. I hated it. Worked there until I started college
When I was 10 and 11, I picked raspberries in the summer for a neighbor lady. Then when I was 12, I started picking strawberries.
