    Got my first job at a big grocery store as a stock boy. About 2 weeks in they told me one of my responsibilities would be to clean the restroom. I replied with a firm "this job isn't for me." Ironically the same store would hire me about a year later as a deli person, and a cashier.

    I current answer phones for an emergency answering service.

    When I was a freshman in high school, I got a job at nearby Italian Market. I worked there for four years, and it was one of the most influential and generally best experiences of my life.

    My first real job was at a local cafe, making smoothies, food, coffee, and working the register. Wasn't a bad first job and the pay was under the table!

    Next summer moved to the cashier.....that sucked

    Worked at school tech support.....easiest job in the world

    Best job ever. If you like long hours, and hard work.
  • sac916sac916 November 2007
    Stucco Applicator. Must love long hours, 100 degree weather, and applying mud to houses. Also must enjoy climbing on scaffolding that will fall over sometimes because the people you work with aren't the most intelligent people.

    Least I made $15/hour, made the job worth it.

    I answer phones for non emergency businesses as well. Got a call on a housing firm from a woman in India. She said her daughter wouldn't answer the telephone and it wasn't like her to not be there for the call. We contacted the building manager. About 15 minutes later we got a call on a funeral line asking them to come pick up the dead body of a 25 year old woman. Exact same address. Fortunatly this kind of call doesnt' phase me anymore. Had to take this call my first week of work and it messed me up for a while.

    1st job was working at a pizza hut call center. Took orders, put them in the computer. A monkey could do it... the managers liked me though and usually once a week I got to call other pizza huts and place fake orders just to make sure they were working the phones correctly. Always loved the accents I'd use.

    Currently at Damon's as a server.

    Future: Flight instructor in about a year, and into the airlines a year after that.

    My first job was at Epko Inc.

    It was a small family owned top of the line Camera / Audio Visual store, I was 15, I think it was 1973, and was in heaven because of this dream job.

    My main responsability was camera repair, then sales. The owner took a liking to me and I was learning Cameras & photography exponentially. He would send me home with Lica's, Hasablad's, Nikon's to shoot rolls of film and learn them inside and out.

    We carried a most everything, cameras, developing supplies. I soon was processing my own B&W, Color slides, and color print (wich was new to the consumer maket at the time), and doing prints and enlargements to 11X17.

    I became very good at minor camera repair, but sent most of the cameras off to warranty or other proffesional repair shops, we made alot of $$$$ just on this little enterprize.

    They had some really new shit....cutting edge Sony Betamax Video recorder machines! 30 minutes record time for only $4,000.

    Of course I was the top High School photographer, many photos in the yearbooks, even managed a "A" in photojournalizm class.

    I worked at an ice cream place from 13 years old to 16 years old. Then I started at Scholotzsky's Deli, 3 months later I was the manager at the deli, and remained so until I graduated from high-school. I'm currently going to school and thankfully un-employed... until the summer when I will be a pharmacist technician
