    How old were you when you had your first job

    I was 14 too young

    22. I was lucky that scholarships paid my way through college, to be honest. Otherwise, I probably would've have had to get my first job at 18.

    I was 15, the gig was umpiring baseball games for our town's Little League on Saturdays at $10.00 a game. It sucked. I learned very quickly that little kids are evil, foul mouthed little demons and their parents were even worse. I quit after a parent threatened to "kick my ass after the game" because I'd called his kid "out" on a play at third base.

    Parents and youth sports don't mix!!!

    In our suburb, we never had to work till we had finished our education. My first stint as a sales rep did not click. I was 22 at that time.

    Like Winterfate, In college I was under a basketball scholarship and didn't get my first job until I was 23.

    13, I had a paper delivery round and was paid 3 quid a day for 2 hours work before school.  Way too early to be working, should have been studying (or sleeping)!

    I was 14 when I got my first job babysitting the kids next door. I was 16 when I got my first job working on a community project.

    I wish I was like these other people who didn't have to work until after college.  LUCKY!  Unfortunately, I got my first job when I was 16.
