    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 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!!

    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.
