How old were you when you had your first job?
I'm doing a piece of research for my English project and I would like to know how old you guys were when you got your first job. Also, what job was it? Thanks!
I was 21 when I got my first job... Currently I am working as a Electrical Design engineer..
I got my first job at 15. I worked at the fast food restaurant called Sonic. I rode around on roller skates delivering food to customers.
i was 17 when i got my first job, working as sales assistant in a computer retail shop
14 years old, spent my Saturday's and Sunday's helping my father keep his car wash business successful.
I delivered newspapers around our neighborhood, usually by bicycle when I was 9 years old. I had about 50 or 60 customers and enjoyed the extra income above my allowance (which was set well below minimum wage by "me fadder" on purpose). He was a wise soul whom knew how to motivate for success...
I was 18 when I got my first job as a library page. It was my first summer out of high school and I kept it as I started my college journey.
I was in the firth grade, so probably about ten. I was a paperboy. Unbundled a stack of papers, folded them in thirds, and then stretched a rubber band around it holding it secure.
Delivered them with a bike. I tied my paper bag to the handle bars. The paper bag had two large pouches when worn over your shoulders hung in front and in back. Worked great from the handle bars except when turning. You had to hold your knees wide or they banged the hanging pouches. You could grab a paper and toss it while going zoom - zoom. Down hill was always a lot of fun.
Collecting was not as tough as many may think except during winter when it was dark. All that money in your pocket was noisy since it was quarters and such. I always got tips along the way. My parents let me spend the tips. My pay went into a Bank of America savings account.
I was ten shoveling snow in the winter and raking in the summer. Made all kinds of money for my Nintendo games.
I was fifteen years old - I was an umpire for my town's Little League baseball organization. It sucked. The players were nasty, foul mouthed little smart-asses and their parents were worse. One player's Dad actually threatened to "kick my punk ass" in the parking lot after a game because I'd called his kid "out" on a play at home plate.
I stuck with it through that summer, but when the league called me the following year and asked if I'd be interested in doing it again, I said "hell no!"
I got my first job of prof. in college at 26 year of my age.
