Pouring concrete for a local contractor. Promised myself I would never do that again for a living... and haven't.
I was a dishwasher at a local family owned restaurant. The job was actually quite fun. Yes, I did just say I had fun washing dishes. I got all the free food I wanted to eat as well.
I started working in a local supermaket as a cashier two years before I graduated from high school. I did not know then that this experience would teach me very vauable lessons which I carried throughout my working career.
I'm grateful to have started at an early age.
I was a babysitter for a number of years, until I became old enough to get a "real" job where I could pay taxes and such. The first "real" job I had was in the seasonal toy and Christmas trim department of a retail store. I was a combination salesperson/stockperson/cashier and very excited to make $1.75 an hour, as minimum wage was $1.60 at the time.
I worked every summer in a chicken factory in France, where my father works. I used the money to pay for my driving courses to get my license. I kept some of the money for college as well.
I worked at Orange Julius/Dairy Queen as a cashier! It was actually pretty bad. I stopped after three months.
My first job was mowing lawns. I started with the neighbors then I began calling real-estate agents selling in our neighborhood and would mow the lawns once every two weeks for them. One of the lawns I mowed was Lance Von Ericks' who was a big wrestling star at the time in Texas which I thought was the coolest thing in the world or maybe it was his girlfriend that would sunbath on the deck when I mowed the lawn.
I was a lifeguard at a local pool. I got a great tan, got to have fun with kids all day & worked with friends. Also, I learned the responsibility of money & working for it!!! Best job as a 14 year old, I'd say
A first job is not something that any of us are likely to forget. I was thinking way back to my very first job of which I am so thankful for. It meant so much to me to have a kind employer from the get go. I know not all are so lucky. read more
